Spotlight on Penny Black – Mixed media canvas

Welcome to a fun week where I will be featuring Penny Black stamps and supplies. I will be posting 3 videos, that’s today, on Wednesday and on Friday.

Penny Black is sponsoring this event with a giveaway so read along!

mixed media canvas

Today I am sharing a mixed media canvas. How gorgeous are those flowers by Penny Black? I usually get this question, if I make canvases and the answer is yes, using the same techniques as in my art journals.

The only difference is that I can go as dimensional as I want to when working on a canvas. In this case I will show you a technique that I like to make my flowers look dimensional.

This mixed media canvas will decorate the wall in my craft room along with other tags, canvases and cards I like to use for decoration.

And I couldn’t stay away from a striking color combination using primary colors. Adding those script die cuts by Penny Black gave a whole new meaning to my canvas, since this is what I do on my craft room!

    Hi Vicky,

    Wow. You blow me away every time. I love the idea of the canvas. I have been wanting to do something for my beach condo…on canvas. Now I know it’s possible. Any chance you might do something beachy sometime? Love the flowers. Your techniques are always so beautiful.

    I tried working on canvas a while back, but my stamping was never great. Thank You for the idea of using a Gesso wash to the background, it seems to make it all so much easier! Lovely flowers and that stenciling is so gorgeous! 🙂

    I love your canvas!! It is beautiful and inspiring!1 I never think to make something for myself, but now maybe I might, with your inspiration.

    PS those acrylic paints are so awesome!! I am sure you used them before, but I did not notice that they color, but don’t cover up the stamp lines-how cool!!
