Little Dreamer mixed media canvas

Hello crafty peeps! Lynne here with a 12x12 canvas I created using chipboard from the Baby Girl Clothesline Set, Tattered Angels mists and lots of little goodies from my stash

The first thing I did was figure out more or less where I wanted everything, then I took  picture, since I would be moving things to add the stencilling, and would no doubt forget where I wanted everything...

I made the texture paste with baby powder, white glue and white acrylic paint and stencilled in the open areas , then covered the whole canvas with white gesso. Since I was going to be using soft colours, I made sure most of the embellishments were light in colour, as they're easier to cover.

After misting with four glimmer mists, I allowed it to dry then misted again for a little more depth of colour, then I rubbed a little metallic wax on the chipboard pieces to make them stand out a little more.

I have been creating canvases for a local art shoppe, so I'm challenging myself to come up with different themes for my projects. Thankfully Gypsy Soul Lasercuts provided such a great variety of pieces and titles that I don't expect to run out of ideas for a long time!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I wish you a dreamy, colourful, creative week!
