G45 Secret Garden Mixed Media Canvas

I have to admit, I have a deep affection for all things mixed media! Some people think of mixed media as being crazy colors and things of that nature. But you can interpret it anyway you like to suit your style! I wanted this to be soft and romantic but full of fun textures! These 6x6 canvases are so fun to alter! I used Imaginarium hexagon chippies as a stencil to cut into my canvas. It adds so much dimension! I glued elements to some acetate and adhered it to the back so when you peek in its very pretty J I also fussy cut from the Leafy Treetops and added them inside the canvas too. The outside paper by the wings was sprayed with water and pleated together while wet. I wanted to mimic the wings a bit. Mixed media is so freeing and just therapeutic for me, I highly encourage you to grab some beautiful G45 papers, some mists , and some texture mediums and have fun!
