Mixed Media Scenic Beauty on Canvas

Hello Everyone!
Hope all you are enjoying the weekend!
Due to some technical problem created in my network connections, I am posted this from somewhere else and feeling so sad:(
This is my DT post for Create Something Catchy Challenges and this month theme is very trendy-Mixed Media!  And I have created Mixed Media Scenic Beauty on Canvas first time !!!

        I started by layered some pattern paper from Echo park and covered it with a light wash of gesso. After that I divided the canvas panel  into an equal parts and applied some white and pink color acrylic paint.
 At the focal point I laid down my Eiffel Tower Book print paper using Mod podge and then using texture paste through the stencil and covered the paste with Diamond dust while it was still wet.   And then attack my panel with sprays and keep the texture paste white some places until I got the look that I liked!
       I made my own embellishments to decorate it. Firstly I have made a Resin Border at the top with Milky glue using mold and applied different alcohol inks on it and pasted it. The letters are made from clear glue stick and coated with silver and metallic alcohol ink to give it that metallic look.   
 I stamped a tiny Time clock and coated it with glossy accents and adjust all these things in the panel. On a doily I stenciled a Number one on it because it is a number 1 destination dream place for me!!!
 I worked with some fabulous wood flourishes from Kaisercraft that I could build a scene with! For the Twin lamp post, I applied gesso first and then distressed the edges with Black Soot Distress ink. The script stamp is from the Urban Grunge stamp set to give it some texture. Same procedure done for the gate too.
 The flowers were cut with Die-namics roses die and some are foam flowers and one is a black color fabric flower which is also handmade to give it a springy look.
    Then I stamped a Eiffel tower stamp on a tag, water colored it and coated it with ton of clear embossing powder and it looks like a Epoxy sticker in real!
     Then I stamped the musical heart with archival black ink to show my love.  The word love is also a wooden embellishment and embossed with red embossing powder and glossy accent it. And what is a beauty of Paris without jewel, so I embellished it with some micro stone diamond jewels!!!     
 At the end I sprayed  with some silver Perfect Pearls in the spritzer which gives it a lovely shimmer!

     And finally a full front view of the canvas design.  I hope I've inspired you to give a mixed media canvas a try!
I hope you enjoyed my project and techniques on how to make beautiful embellishment with these fabulous Kaisercraft wooden Flourishes; resin border, epoxy tag and they add so much dimension to any project that you may make. You can even used them completely as it is for a more earthy, natural look. xo
