Mixed Media Mini Canvas's

Hi my dear friends :)

I created these pretty little canvas's the other day for Flying Unicorn.  I was short on time but still felt like being creative. So I decided to make these quick and simple canvas's.  They make great gifts and at the same time I was able to experiment with different colours and techniques as well.


Lots of pretties on these canvas's.  I will run you through a list of  gorgeous products I used which can be found in the Flying Unicorn Store as well as a short written step by step....sorry I didn't photograph the steps this time.  

Firstly each canvas was primed with Gesso.  I then used a Crafters Workshop stencil and some Gel Medium and started to build up my background.  Once this was dry I then randomly applied my different mists.  For the 1st one I used the following colours:

To finish off the background of these canvas's I did some random stamping using a Prima Stamp - Vintage Vanity.  

Then my favourite part....adding some beautiful flowers, Prima and Petaloo and Flying Unicorn Adornments :)) 

Lastly, I highlighted the pinks and purples by using Silks Acrylic Glaze in Ginger Flower and adding a spray of water to blend.  I have also brushed over my flowers with some Gesso to finish it off.


This canvas was done using the same steps but I used the following different colours:
- Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst - Cocoa Bean Copper (which is currently not in the store at the moment)

The Flying Unicorn Store stocks a huge range of mix media products so be sure to check them out.

Hope you are having a creative week! :)
