Mixed media canvas project

mixed media Monday at scrapbooknerd.com

Hello Scrapbook Nerd friends,
I hope you had a nice Easter long weekend, I had a fun day with my family out in Port Elgin.
I’m already looking forward to the leftovers and turkey sandwiches. 😀

The mixed media share today is a 6×6 canvas board.
This canvas project has 3 layers; it starts with the script background, some tissuestock from Canvas Crop., some paint, and the final layer is the coffee cups & title.But First Coffee- mixed media canvas board projectI like the grungy background and it really makes those cups pop off the page. The ‘table’ the cups are sitting on was created with the Ornate stencil and some umber paint. The cups were die-cut from the Atwell 6×6 paper pad and two of the cups have some light stenciling on them for some added interest. I added a hand drawn border before adhering the words, I think it helps contains things and gives it a finished look.

Mixed Media Monday – Project Showcase

mixed media Monday at scrapbooknerd.com

Welcome back to another Mixed Media Monday. Today, we’re bringing you a project that was recently completed by our Nerdy Friend, Jennifer Celeste. Jennifer has been addicted to mixed media for a little while now, and had been having the best time creating projects and playing with a variety of mediums.
Recently, Jennifer completed a gorgeous steampunk canvas, and when she showed us her finished project, we ran for the camera because we knew that we had to share it here.


We just love all the gorgeous texture and dimension on this canvas!




The contrast of the feminine flowers and the masculine metals really make this a stunning piece.

Thank you, so much, Jennifer, for sharing your gorgeous canvas with us. I just have one question … when is it going to be hung in my house?

Shine collection with Joy

I honestly can’t believe that May is coming to a close and summer is almost here. I have really enjoyed this months Creative team challenge….cork. I’m excited to work with it a little more and die cut some shapes and stamp on a few sheets with some sentiment stamps.

I was able to work with the We R Memory Keepers Shine collection this month, I love the colour palette and I have enough leftover for a few more projects 🙂

I chose to work with the colours in the WRMK Shine collection for my canvas below, not exact matches but inspired by the collection. I had a bit of a tuff time finishing this project…it didn’t feel complete until I added some black & white paint splatters 🙂
