{Mixed Media Tutorial} Be Fearless by Tanja


Hi there. It's Tanja here and I would like to show you how to create this canvas step by step:


  • create a background with Distress Spray Stains (Tumbled Glass, Broken China)
  • mix Distress Paint (Vintage Photo) with Golden Acrylic Glazing Liquid and apply the mixture over the whole canvas, take it off with a baby wipe and repeat the process until you are happy with the result
  • add shadows and more color to the flower with the help of a watercolor brush and Derwent Inktense Pencils (Oak, Dark Aquamarine)
  • add splatters with the Dark Aquamarine
  • add white splatters with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors
  • apply embossing ink all around the edges and heat-emboss them with Distress Embossing Powder (Vintage Photo)
  • doodle around the stenciled elements with a PITT Artist Pen (Dark Sepia) and a white gel pen
  • add some brown splatters with the leftover glazing mixture and ink up the edges with Distress Ink (Walnut Stain)

I hope you got inspired.

Yours,
