Hello! I was thinking to have a mixed media project using a brayer and acrylic paints, and here it is finally coming to life with two canvases. Just to show how you get different and amazing results, I wanted to create two very different color schemes.
If you want to watch how I created them, here is the link to the video on YouTube. You will find supply list at the description area on YouTube or at the end of this post:
In one of the canvases, I preferred to go for a vivid style and the other shabby chic style.
For the vivid one, I used my Dylusions and Paper Artsy Fresco Chalk paints for the other one. What I love about using a brayer is, you can mix the colors in a way you can’t ever do with other techniques. And it is kind of surprising when you finish.
For both of them, I also did some stenciling with embossing paste. And I also did some stamping on the background to give more interest. I used an amazing butterfly stamp by Indigoblu and embossed it on a vellum paper with black embossing powder that has glitter in it.
I embellished it with Nuvo crystal drops in various colors matching the background. I placed it on a cheesecloth to give some texture as well. I used Tim Holtz sticker set for my sentiment and gave black border using Archival ink.
For the second one, I chose chipboards and flowers for my sentiment and focal point.
I painted the flowers with the same green I used for the background, just to bring things together. I also stamped some flourishes on the corners, as well as a dragonfly. This time I embellished them with white and green Nuvo crystal drops. I also used an amazing stencil by TCW that has vine leaves to add extra dimension.
