Mixed Media Canvas - Daisies and Rainbows Stamp Set

Hi all

I'm back with my first official post as a Design Team Member and I am really excited to be here as I love the Oak House Studio products to bits. Many of the products I have used will be featured on HOCHANDA TV  -  Oak House Studio have 3 shows:

Wednesday 21st October

11am Roses
2pm Double Daisy
6pm  Best Bits

 Would you like to learn how to make a mixed media canvas? Well I will show you xx

First spray the canvas with Pumpkin Ink In A Bottle and allow some of the ink to run down the canvas.

Oak House Studio Inks In A Bottle Pumpkin and Pure Colour Chemistry Brazil Nut

Mix Brazil Nut Pure Colour Chemistry with some texture paste. Use a stencil to spread the paste onto the canvas.

Add a few drops of Brazil Nut Pure Colour Chemistry to an empty spritzing bottle and add a bit of water to make a spray. Spritz this over the canvas to tone down the Pumpkin ink. Then flick Citrus Lime Ink In A Bottle over the page.

Next using the Square Grid Stamp apply Triple Vintage Browns ink to it and stamp around the canvas randomly. Next using the Sunshine Sentiment and Textures set, stamp around the canvas using Golden Oak ink. I then took one of the stamps from the New Daisies and  Rainbows stamp set and stamped that at four points on to the canvas.  The new Daisies and  Rainbows stamp set will be premiering on Hochanda as part of an exclusive bundle.

Now its time to get the paper layers built up. I matted the photo onto patterned paper first but did not stick it down as  I wanted to place all the paper pieces in the right spot first.

I used a selection of die cuts and trimmed strips of patterned paper to make the layers. I placed them so that I wouldn't cover over the stamp work as I wanted that to be part of the texture.

Its time to add the embellishments. If you do not have any to match the colour scheme then alter them with ink !!. I used cream paper roses and spritzed them with Citrus Lime Ink In A Bottle and then Brazil Nut to get an Autumn green. I would recommend covering the entire workspace with newspaper including the wall.

I used the quotes as the title by stamping them onto the board using black ink. If they do not stand out very well then stamp onto Stamping Card and spritz with ink. I tore around the edges so it blended in better. This stamp is also from the New Daisies and Rainbows Set.

Don't forget to watch HOCHANDA on Wednesday - the first show is at 11am. 

Thank you for visiting

Love this, I will be having a go when I get some more of the pure colour inks. I have fallen for them hook line and sinker as you can you them in the concentrated form or watered down and achieve great results ! As you have proved in this tutorial ....

Great work Katie xx
