Hi friends :)
Do you ever have moments where you feel like being creative and want to create something but you are short on time or the inspiration isn't just there. Here I have a couple of pretty mini canvas's to share with you that I created when time was a little short for me. These make really lovely gifts and its also a great way to experiment with colour combinations and different mediums at the same time.
Lots of pretties on these canvas's. I will run you through a list of gorgeous products I used which can be found in the Flying Unicorn Store as well as a short written step by step....sorry I didn't photograph the steps this time.
Firstly each canvas was primed with Gesso. I then used a Crafters Workshop stencil and some Gel Medium and started to build up my background. Once this was dry I then randomly applied my different mists. For the 1st one I used the following colours:
To finish off the background of these canvas's I did some random stamping using a Prima Stamp - Vintage Vanity.
Then my favourite part....adding some beautiful flowers, Prima and Petaloo and Flying Unicorn Adornments :))
Lastly, I highlighted the pinks and purples by using Silks Acrylic Glaze in Ginger Flower and adding a spray of water to blend. I have also brushed over my flowers with some Gesso to finish it off.
This canvas was done using the same steps but I used the following different colours:
- Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst - Cocoa Bean Copper (which is currently not in the store at the moment)
The Flying Unicorn Store stocks a huge range of mix media products so be sure to check them out.
Have a creative weekend :)
