Mixed media canvas | beautiful life

Today I am sharing a mixed media canvas that I have created using some awesome stamps by Carabelle Studios. I found out about this French company when I was in Paris visiting Version-Scrap and I totally fell in love with their stamps. Their designs are amazing and perfect for your mixed media projects. So here is what I created

A canvas with many 3 dimensional elements as you can see in the close-up photos below

For coloring I have used the new metalique acrylic paints by Prima and they gave a gorgeous shine on my project

I used many mixed media techniques and I had so much fun creating both the background and the foreground with all those elements popping out of the canvas.

Also to add even more texture I used micro beads by Prima in two different colors for my sky and the ground.

this canvas is going to decorate my craft room and I hope you will enjoy the process as much as I did!

Supplies:

Carabelle Studio products are easy to find in Europe but they are also available to the other side of the pond through SimonSaysStamp. If you can not find a specific stamp in the SSS shop just ask them and they will get it for you! Below I am sharing both links for the US and Europe.

    Hi Vicky,
    I love you work. Thanks so much for sharing.

    What kind of paper did you say you could make a clear stamp that would disappear after gel medium dries?

    Thank you, Tresa

    Oh wow Vicki! What a great canvas! You’ve blown me away with all the things you did on it. What a ginormous stamp! I had no idea such things existed or if I had encountered it, I would have no idea what to do with it. Once again, you’re amazing! Love the way you treated the little girl stamp. So darling!

    Vicky, I think I responded originally when this video first appeared. I absolutely love it. I was able to get the swing set and the tree from Simon Says Stamp. Thank you so much for this idea. I’m going to try to make something like this. I so look forward to all your posts. You are the best.
