Mixed Media Canvas, Dad's 70th Birthday.

hi everyone its Louise from Lulu purple

today I'm going to be showing you a

mixed-media canvas which I did for my

dad's 70th birthday so first of all I'm

going to use my matte medium to stick

down page text onto my piece of

cardboard and using pages from an old

book and I have ripped them up and I'm

just sticking them on to my piece of

card I'll just show you a little bit and

then I'll skip to the end

I have used my computer to print out a

large seven and a zero and I am just

gluing these onto a piece of an old

cereal box

once that had all dried I then use

another piece of cereal box and stick

the 70 on to it for extra strength

you

you

once that had all dried I then cut out

my 70 once I've done that I then glue

some buttons onto the seven and the zero

after all the buttons are in place I

then leave this to dry overnight so

going back to my canvas i'm using my

matte medium and I'm just pulling the

paper from the edges and sticking them

on to the back

I'm now going to use my black gesso and

I'm going to paint over the top of all

the buttons on my 7 and my 0

you

once the gesso had all dried I then use

my white pearl metallic paint to go over

the top of the buttons now I started

using white pearl but it didn't look

quite right I didn't see I'm just trying

a little bit it wasn't quite the liq I

was game for so I changed my mind and I

then use the glorious gold metallic

paint

once the gold had all dried I then used

my ice blue metallic paint and dry brush

it over the top of the gold

as you can see we all make mistakes and

have accidents just dropped it in the

paint never mind

so talking of mistakes earlier on I

painted my canvas and used a lot of

stamped images on it but I thought it

looked a bit too busy so I'm going ahead

and sticking more text paper onto the

back of my canvas board so that I can

start again

you

going back to my 70 I am now going to

use my rich expresso black pearl and

peacock pearl metallic paints using a

little bit and a small brush and just

dry brushing the different colors onto

the button numbers

you

you

after the paint had all dried I then go

back in with my glorious gold metallic

paint and just randomly do a few more

dabs over the top

going back to my canvas board I am now

going to use my salty ocean distress

paint and I'm going to use a wet wipe to

apply the paint to the background I'm

doing it this way so that you can still

see the writing in the background

you

you

you

you

after the blue paint had all dried I

then go in with my squeezed lemonade

distress paint to add some more color to

my board

you

you

you

I am now using a cereal box again and

i'm using my cog dies to cut out lots of

cogs

you

I then use my black gesso to paint all

my cogs

next I use my shimmering silver metallic

paint to paint my cogs

I am now going to use my bronze metallic

paint and I'm using a small brush and

I'm just dotting the paint in random

areas around all of the cogs next I use

my peacock pearl metallic paint and I'm

going to do exactly the same thing with

a dry brush randomly dotting the color

around all of my cogs

I then use my crystal green metallic

paint and do exactly the same thing as

before this time I'm just using my

finger to apply the color to the COG as

you can see here in a moment it's given

it a more rusty aged look

I then use my amethyst metallic paint

and I'm using this on the paper clay

cogs that I made I then use my rich

expresso metallic paint and a dry brush

doing exactly the same thing just dry

brushing it on to the cogs in random

areas next I use my splendid gold

metallic paint and again same thing dry

brush randomly dotting the color around

the cogs I then go back in with my

amethyst metallic paint again over the

top as some of the color disappeared

I am now going to use my sunflower

archival ink and an ink blending tool

with the tim holtz gear stencil and i'm

just applying the ink over the top on

the top and the bottom of my canvas

I am now using the number stencil by tim

holtz

next I'm going to use my fern green

archival ink and the dot fade stencil by

tim holtz this wasn't showing up very

well so I go to my black archival ink

and I use the stencil dot fade with this

ink

you

I'm now going to use my cosmic shimmer

acrylic glue to stick all my cogs onto

my canvas

you

I'm now using my first affine ink pad

onyx black and I am using a sentiment

stamp to stamp onto a piece of white

card stock

you

I then use the coordinating die to cut

out the sentiment

you

I am now using my cosmic shimmer acrylic

glue again to stick my numbers onto the

board

you

you

I am now using my sticks to foam pads to

add on to the back of the sentiment to

give it a bit more dimension
