Dare to Dream Mixed Media Canvas

Recently I decided something had to be done with the walls in my studio. They are a plain beige color and not very inspiring. So I thought about painting them, but that would require taking time away from creating and teaching classes plus it would be a lot of work! My other option was to cover those very blah walls with art. Well that is the option I chose and ever since I've be making mixed media canvases to hang on the walls. 

When I received a request from one of my students to create another canvas class, I was excited by the possibility of having yet another piece to add to my walls. This mixed media canvas is loaded with techniques including image transfer, collaging, painting, glittering, misting and glazing. The freedom to do whatever and use any supplies you want is what makes mixed media so addicting for me!

Look at all that awesome texture!
I still use craft paints for most of my work, especially for classes to keep the cost down, but I am intrigued by the brilliant colors you can get with Golden paints and other artist quality paints, so I may have to do some investing in those! If you have any questions about what I used just leave me a comment below.

Thanks for stopping by,
