{Mixed Media Tutorial} Don't Let Life Ruffle Your Feathers by Monika

Hello Crafty Friends! Today I'm showing you how I made this canvas using the Delicate Leaves and Crisscrossed stencils in combination with the Feathery stamps and dies.

I used a small stretched and primed canvas approximately 16cm x 11.5cm (6 1/4 x 4 1/2 inches) in size and applied texture paste through the Delicate Leaves stencil.

Once the paste had dried, I coloured my canvas using watercolour making sure I left some white bits before adding some pink splatters.

Next I heat embossed one of the feathers from the new Feathery set three times in Snowflake Embossing Tinsel and used the matching die to cut out the feathers.

Note: The snowflake embossing tinsel is basically white embossing powder with glitter. 

I sponged my feathers with Melon Mambo through the Crisscrossed stencil.

I then stamped my sentiment and cut it into pieces before edging the feathers and sentiment with a gold leaf pen.

I then added a little Treasure Gold around the edges of my canvas, attached the feathers and sentiment and finished of with some matching sparkly candy dots.

Here are a few more photos.

The feathers were attached in the center only to allow for more movement and dimension.

That's it from me for today. Hope you feel inspired to have a playful time and create your own mixed media project. If you do, why not link it up with November Mixed Media Challenge which starts in a couple of days on Sunday 5th November and will run until the end of this month. The Mixed Media Challenge is always Anything But A Card Goes + Use a Stencil, I look forward to seeing you there.

Have a lovely week!
