Mixed Media Canvas: Harmony

~ * ~

This article is written by Shari Welch

I have been wanting to try some of the new line of mixed media products from DecoArt® called media.

I decided it was time to bring out the canvas to try out a few of these products. I am using a  black regular mister, a shimmer mister in turquoise, and a crackle paste. I pulled out a bee hive stencil to use with the crackle paste.  I added additional color using distress inks by Tim Holtz. I finished by adding some butterfly and bee ephemera.

Tip: When using ink sprays make sure you clean them out after each use. I have an extra spray bottle filled with diluted DecoArt® brush and stencil cleaner that I attach the sprayer to. Spray onto a paper towel until no more ink is visible.
