Mixed Media Daisy Canvas – Wall Decor

September 20, 2017

Welcome, friends, to a brand new project. This is Piyanki here today. The ECD Design Teams are celebrating the season with home decor projects this month. I have created a beautiful canvas for you using the Gerbara Daisy from Susan’s Garden. I always enjoy using canvas boards because the surface is just right as a background for handcrafted flowers.

This time the canvas is partially covered with mixed media effects, a fitting backdrop for the bouquet.


Project Intructions

Step 1 – The canvas measures 7″x 3.5″. Adapt to a different size as you choose.

Step 2 – Apply a thin coat of white Gesso on the canvas. Air dry or heat set it.

Step 3 – Apply a thick coat of Texture Paste to the center area of the canvas with a palette knife and scribble lines and marks into it while it’s wet to create texture. Air dry or heat set it.

Step 4 – Spray a bit of water over the canvas and then randomly spray with watercolor or other paint mists. Heat set between colors and repeat till you like the effect.

Step 5 – Die cut enough pieces to make two Gerbera Daisies plus leaves from White Soft Finish Cardstock. Shade all pieces with inks or coloring medium of choice. (Shown: Plum Archival Ink for the flowers.)

Step 6 – Using Susan’s metal tool set and the molding mat, shape each all petals and leaves.

Step 7 – Assemble the flowers. Add some Prills to the center.

Step 8 – Use Multi Medium Matte to add some Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to the canvas. Apply a bit more of the Medium and add some Prills, leaving the center area of the canvas free for the flowers and leaves.

Step 9 – Adhere the flowers and leaves at an angle toward the center of the canvas.

Step 10 – Die cut 2 pieces of White Soft Finish Cardstock using the Romantic Corner die set.  from the Romantic Corner die using soft finish card stock.

Step 11 – Adhere the decorative lace, using the smaller corner piece at the upper left, the larger piece at the bottom right.

Step 12 – Display on a small easel or add a picture hanger to the back of the canvas.
