{Mixed Media Tutorial} Shine Canvas by Tanja

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

  • add color and shine using watered-down Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks and Pearlized Water

  • grunge up the edges with the help of a black Stabilo All pencil and a wet watercolor brush

  • add texture by stamping elements from Scribbly Splattery Grunge, Mixed Media Elements and Art Marks and Archival Ink Black Soot
  • use a hot glue gun to adhere a piece of linen, sari silk ribbon and colored cheesecloth
  • use Thickers for the first part of the sentiment and a printed out paper strip for the second part

I hope you got inspired.
