Are you all loving the Dies by SCACD? I sure am! Susana has done a fabulous job with these!!! I'd like to share with you the canvas that I made for the Blog Hop the day these dies were released!
My home decor piece was made using an artist canvas and Natures Tapestry Fan Die and the Classic Corner Die. These EXCLUSIVE dies are so beautiful and stunning! If you like my Mixed Media project and didn't know this....SCACD has a whole section dedicated to Mixed Media....there are LOTS of awesome products in this category.....you can find them all -->HERE<-- don't be afraid to get messy and try something new because the results you come up with can be truly breath taking!!! So go get your "mess" on! :)
I started off my creation with a blank white canvas....you can find many different sized canvases at SCACD -->HERE<--. I then took my Luminarte Silks in Pink Grapefruit, Vaboom Red, and Solar Gold, and started to paint away by blending these colors together on my canvas. I just picked up a little of each color at a time and kept painting away. There is no right or wrong way when it comes to Mixed Media so that is the super fun element to creating....you can't screw up anything! :) When I liked what was painted on my canvas I let that dry for about an hour.... then I came back to the canvas and brushed on a couple more swipes of each color in various spots to get each particular color to stand out instead of them all being so blended. Seriously if you do NOT have any of the Silks this is by far a product you NEED to add to your craft supplies....these babies are AMAZING let me tell ya! The shimmer and shine in each one is astounding! I love the metallic shimmer of each color....When I was complete with painting my canvas it reminded me of a beautiful sunset!
The Natures Tapestry Fan was cut out on a white piece of cardstock. To get the gorgeous color of the fan I used my Gum Arabic, Luminarte Clear Medium, Cranberry Mica, and Solar Gold Mica. On my craft mat I first mixed up equal parts of my Cranberry Mica and Gum Arabic and then mixed in some Clear Medium. This made a paint which I coated the whole fan with. Then I mixed equal parts of Gum Arabic and Solar Gold Mica mixed along with some Clear Medium which made me a gorgeous gold paint and very lightly feathered this gold paint on the bottom half of the pan to add a soft goldish tint/shimmer. The lace that I gathered behind my fan started out white....to get it colored I took my Pink Grapefruit Silk and Solar Gold Silk and painted up the lace so it would coordinate with the rest of my project. Rhinestones accent the flowers on the fan and Diamond Stickles accent the lace.
The Classic Corner Die was used to accent the canvas corners - these were cut out on black cardstock. I then took the same Micas that I used to paint the Fan (Gum Arabic, Luminarte Clear Medium, Cranberry Mica, and Solar Gold Mica)and lightly painted the corners. I love the Micas on dark cardstock.....look at the gorgeous shimmer and sparkle in each of these colors but how different it looks on the black cardstock vs. the white cardstock! Aren't Micas AMAZING?! I truly do LOVE all of the Luminarte products!!!
Flower arrangement was decorated with a gorgeous Webster Pages Butterfly Pin. Flowers were sparalized with Diamond Stickles.
One more angled view for you to see all that shimmer and sparkled beauty and how beautiful these Luminarte products look with the fabulous NEW EXCLUSIVE Dies by SCACD! I hope you have enjoyed my Canvas and I have inspired you to make some Mixed Media projects! They are so fun and easy!!!
