I'm Kerri one of the Scrapmixers design team. I have for you today a 'CAS' (Clean and Simple) mixed media canvas art tutorial. I thought with valentines coming up it would make a great gift for the one you love. (This demo is also available on the scrapmixers website as i made this mixed media canvas as part of their design team)
Square canvas / Red Spritz Ink / Hematite Spritz Ink / Gold embossing powder / Clear emboss ink pad / 'Love' stencil / Arrow stencil / Gold mirror arrows / Black metallic paint / Gold spotted craft tape / Gold gems / Black wooden arrow / Gold & black paper
Heart punch / Tacky glue / Heat gun
Step 1: I used the red spritz ink to cover the canvas, once dry I added drips of the hematite spritz ink by removing the spray nozzle and dripping the ink, I then left to completely dry.
Step 2: I applied the 'Love' stencil to the centre and then applied clear emboss ink, I removed the stencil and added gold embossing powder. I tapped off the excess powder onto a scrap piece of paper and put back into the pot so not to waste any. I used my heat gun to heat the embossing powder leaving behind a beautiful foiled effect 'Love'.
Step 3: I applied my arrow stencil to the top edge and used black metallic paint, I then repeated the process to the bottom opposite edge.
Step 4: I applied self adhesive gold mirror arrows above each of the black stencilled areas.
Step 5: I cut craft tape into thin strips with triangular edges and applied to the top left hand corner. I then added gold gems and a mini wooden arrow.
Step 6: I used a heart punch in gold and black paper to create the mini heart for the top left hand corner.
