"Sing a Little Louder " Mixed Media Tutorial
I have created this piece on Canvas 30 x 40 cm
But the project would also work on Journal paper.
Step 1. Collage pieces of old music sheets and paper doilies.
I use # Decopage Matte Medium
Step 2 Choose your stencil and sponge the image with Gesso
Step 3 Use spray inks over your canvas. I have used Kaisercraft inks
Step 4 Spray with water and let the inks do their thing!
Step5 Apply more stencils #Tim Holtz, over your canvas with Texture Paste
Step 6 I have used Butterfly stamps by Kaisercraft,
Stamp out onto lunch wrap paper using Black Stazon ink, cut out and glue onto canvas.
Choose a paper napkin with flowers, peel off the backing and collage onto your canvas.
Step 7 Load your filbert paintbrush In Titanium White and highlight the flowers.
Paint in a few extra leaves using Jade and Titanium.
Dyrbrush the larger butterfly wings in Titanium.
Add some music washi tape, pink self-adhesive rhinestones,
Whatever else you want to embellish with. Make it your own!
Step 8 Print out your verse and collage it onto your canvas.
Use words that express your personal message.
