DREAM – Mixed Media Canvas

Hello fellow crafters!
I’m excited about today’s project, it’s jammed packed full of techniques and many different mediums.

SUPPLIES:
 
Hyacinth Dew Drops – Robin’s Nest
11X14 Canvas
PrismaColor Watercolor pencils, multiple blues and purples
USArtQuest metallic watercolors (blue and lavender)
Copper and Purple glitter glue (stickles) – Ranger Ink
Copper skeleton leaves
Epoxy and silicone mold (alphabet)
purple, blue and copper glitter
Flourish rubber stamps – Stampin Up!
Clear pigment pad for embossing, embossing pen
Electric blue and purple Ultra Thick Embossing Powder – Ranger Ink
Clear spray sealer, matte and glossy
Various adhesives (craft glue, Mod Podge, E-6000)
INSTRUCTIONS:
 
1. Draw a dream catcher without feathers, (or find one of many on-line). Mine was done on white paper first, then traced on to the canvas.
     a. Drafting and quilting tools can be a tremendous help when drawing or designing. These are ALVIN brand (Germany).  The half circle template is a quilting tool by EZQuilt (Massachusetts, USA). Sometimes, a ruler doesn’t hurt either :o)

b. I tried taping the paper pattern behind the canvas, but it didn’t last long so I held it as I traced.
c. *** Use an ink pen or sharpie, so your design won’t run.

2. Randomly scribble watercolor pencil in horizontal patches of various blues and purples until the background is mostly covered.

3. Using a 3/4″ to 1″ wide artist brush and water, blend watercolor pencil.
4. Accent some areas with metallic watercolors. Let dry completely, then spray with matte sealer. 
5. Place dew drops where desired and adhere. The center has 6 brown diamond shaped drops.
6. Apply the glitter glue. Rim is copper, the rest is purple. Let dry completely.
7. Use Mod Podge to decoupage the skeleton leaves in place.
8. Stamp flourishes around edges with clear pigment for embossing. *If the canvas is on a frame, slide a sturdy piece of chipboard underneath the frame from behind to create a level stamping surface.

9. Mix purple and blue UTEE or embossing powder together, apply to pigment, dump off excess and heat emboss.

*HINTS:
(1) Before heat embossing the stamped/powdered images, check for strays or over stamped areas. It can be touched up easily by removing unwanted areas with a tiny artist brush. Don’t expect perfection, sometimes the powder moves when you point the heat gun at it :o)
(2) UTEE has larger granules than regular EP, sometimes the finer lines don’t stick. These can be touched up after the first heat set with an embossing pen and more UTEE, heat set again.

10. You can use any lettering technique you love. I recently bought some new toys and wanted to play with epoxy and silicone molds.  (Entire alphabet is on one sheet/mold.)  Mix epoxy per manufacturers instructions, add glitter (purple, blue and copper). Pour into mold and set until firm. (overnight, to be sure)

11. Pop the alphabet out of the mold and adhere to the canvas with E-6000 adhesive.

12. Seal the entire project with glossy spray sealer.

If you ever have any questions about my projects or techniques, or need clarification, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m always happy to help!
Have a fabulous week, Craft on!
