Mixed Media Hanging Beach Canvas

Hello Everyone! Today I have my last project from this years Whimsy Weekend Craft Retreat to show to you. A Mixed Media Hanging Beach Canvas. This was the project I was teaching in my class. It's a lot of fun to make and what I especially like with Mixed Media it is very forgiving and there is actually nothing that can go really wrong. Just have fun, dive into all the different mediums and have fun, fun, fun and let your creativity  take over!


To prime the canvas I used gesso and after it had dried I added acrylic paint in shades of turquoise and blue. I stamped the awesome Whimsy Seashell background onto tissue paper (tim holtz plain tissue paper) with Versafine black ink. Let dry thoroughly then add part (or all if you prefer) of the shell tissue paper to the canvas using Super Heavy Gel Matte Medium (Liquitex). Then I started decorating the canvas with structure paste and stencils and added my embellishments and fussy cut images. 

Here are all the Whimsy products I've used on my canvas:
