Decoupage Mixed Media Canvas

Hello Friends!
 I am loving the new range of Bob N Betty decopatch papers - very high quality 50gsm papers, a dream for all decoupage artists. You can check my previous posts with this awesome release here & here.

These papers are very thin & blend easily into the background to give a seamless finish, they truly do! Check the canvas I share today -

Stay with me as I take you through the steps to combine decoupage & mixed media to create unique wall decor for your homes.
The USP of these papers is the ease with which you can use them on surfaces, just like rice papers & tissues. To highlight this I started by creating a textured base for the 12x12 canvas.

Next I fussy cut a section (OLD WORLD CHARM sheet) & also some elements from the FLORAL ADORNMENTS sheet. I decided on the layout & decoupaged them on the textured canvas.

Here is a close up to show how easily it blends on the textured background.

Next I colored the canvas with coordinating chalk paints.

Some random stencilling & stamping over the textures -

To add some more textures I stenciled clear crackle paste on the edges & added some paste with the palette knife too.

To finish the canvas I splattered acrylic paint.  The Crackle paste dries clear over the textures to reveal the background through. the cracks, perfect for the image I selected! Spray with acrylic varnish to seal the canvas.

 You can grab these papers from any of our Sales Buddies   &  share your gorgeous creations using Bob n Betty papers with us on our facebook group Bob n Betty Buddies.
