Mini Mixed Media Canvas.

Its time for another challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit...and also introducing 4 new members to the design team...I do hope you will all pop over and say Hello..

My project for May is this little canvas...I have several of  these laying around in my workshop. I happened to see a few that had been decorated online and decided I could do something similar with mine.

I started by winding a selections of yarns, lace and string around the canvas...then added a few beads and a key.
I painted it all with gesso...then used a selection of spray inks for colour.
My colour palette changed the more I sprayed and I finished with a gorgeous purple,blue and gold colour

The crucifix is by Fernli Designs...I applied Purple wax gilding direct to the mdf then wrapped some wire around it and adhered it to the canvas.
It really looks gorgeous in real life and very tactile...
Do pop over and take a look at our can find us here at

A beautiful canvas, it really looks soft, by as the colours as the textures.
