You know me....I love some texture and mixed media with my paintings. There is nothing like getting messy with paints and paper. For 19 years I have enjoyed scrapbooking. That is a long time. But now I am having fun using those scrapbooking supplies and adding them to a canvas. It's a whole new art form for me and I love it. Here is a project I made for USArtQuest using some MicaColor Watercolors and some 101 Craze and Crackle Medium. That was some fun stuff!
I started off with adding some grey and white paint all over the canvas. While it was still wet I added some patterned paper and adhered it down with PPA adhesive. Touched up some areas around the paper with more paint just so it blends in. Once this was dry I was able to use the Craze and Crackle Medium by applying it with a palette knife. I also used some foam stamps to make the vines going down the sides. Once this had dried over night the fun began with patterned paper and PPA.
