Mixed Media Canvas

 Inspired by Marion Smith's Mixed media painting we decided to do a  canvas as our project this month.
I wanted to add some different textures so cut a heart from some calico and used one of the Stencil Girls April stencils - Paisley pattern, with molding paste, Sam and Bibi loved the stencil too so they used it on theirs too.   I'm a bit obsessed with stencils and molding(modeling?) paste at the moment - h and dylusions spray inks.

Used several different stencils to create the background texture and sprayed with dylusions inks and water to get them to flow and merge.  Coloured the heart with gelatos, I love how they look on fabric.

Tied some twine around the brushes(although you can't really see it) then glued the brushes in place. Gave the brushes a quick coat of gesso to unify them, added a tattered clock, some rose trim to the edge of one side of the heart then glued in place.

Left - Sam's, Middle - Mine, Right - Bibi's
I thought mine needed something at the top so added a stamped saying and an altered butterfly.
