Canvas Tutorial

Today we have the super inspiring mixed media artist Sherry Goodloe of our Inspiration Team here to share a few tips on how she created this fabulous canvas:

I created this 8″ x 10″ canvas collage by starting with a decorative napkin . . .

Once I separated the 3 layers of the napkin, I used the top layer to create a background using Claudine Hellmuth’s multi medium to glue the napkin pieces to the canvas . . .

I finished the edges of the canvas with pieces of the napkin as well . . .

Textured decorative papers were used to create the girl’s dress . . .

Other items used to decorate the background and the Banner Day girl are as follows:

Tim Holtz Creative Textures stamps

Tim Holtz Collection – Fancy Flourish stamps

Various other random rubber stamps
Hero Arts – Friendly Flags for the banner Tim Holtz Distress Stain – Wild Honey (LOVE the new Distress Stains!)

Archival Ink Jet Black by Ranger
Vintage ledger book pages
Bubble wrap paper to apply the paints
Foreign newspaper
Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paint – Dash of Red
Perfect Pearls Mists – Perfect Pearl

Thank you Sherry for the glimpse into your creative process!!
