I created this mixed media canvas for my bestie (shh.. it's for her birthday!). The flowers are paper pieced from DCWV "Vintage Lane" glossy papers. Since the paper has a glossy surface, I was able to color and shade the flowers with amazing PITT Pens from Faber Castell. The original paper is black and white.
Here is a close up of the coloring with PITT pens. I smeared the ink on the flower to get the shading I liked, and once it's dry it is permanent. Which means I can go over it with some glitter Mod Podge and the colors won't bleed ;)
The texture in the background is from a new DCWV flourish stencil that I coated with Faber Castell Whipped Spackle. This combination gives so much dimension to the canvas! In the corners, you can also see some colored DCWV Corrugate paper.
This was a lot of fun to create and didn't require too many materials. I love the end result and hope my friend loves it, too! Be sure to hop along... there will be a lot of inspiration!
