I have a Mixed Media Collage (on canvas) to show you today.
I started with a 10 x 10 inch stretched canvas. I covered it with a sheet of Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap - Melange using Matt Gel Medium. When dry, I added lots of greens & blues with Neocolor II (water colour) crayons, spritzed with water, let it run and then let it dry. Next I added texture using TCW - Solace stencil with light molding paste and let it dry. I added the diamond pattern with TCW Harlequin stencil and black acrylic paint. Next I painted with Silks Acrylic Glazes.
I stamped the large Butterfly from Chocolate Baroque's Tangled Garden set with black on 140lb mixed media paper. I cut it out & adhered with Glossy Gel Medium, added wires for the antennae and then painted with the Acrylic Glazes. I added lots of stickles to the body.
I covered everything with clear Distress Crackle paint. The final step was to add the metal centers to the 'flowers' and the 3 metal butterflies which I also painted a little and added liquid pearls to the center.
Here is a close up where you can see the 'crackle' in the finish.
