Canvas mixed media art with tissue paper and stamping.

For Technique Time at Unity, I am sharing a mixed media art canvas using stamped tissue paper and acrylic paint.

Sentiment:  Love your story.

This is an inspirational themed art canvas with a rustic look.  This involves a few steps.  See below for details and a video tutorial.

Here are helpful tips for creating this canvas.  To begin, stamp tissue paper with selected art or words.  Then, tear the tissue to separate the sections.  Next, mix a dab of acrylic paint into a bit of matte gel for each color.  For ease, use a plastic craft mat or palette to separate colors.  Have on hand a pre-primed stretched canvas or prime a canvas and then leave it to dry.  Next, make a background using swipes of three premixed paint colors.  It helps to use a foam blending brush.  Then, assemble the tissue paper pieces onto the wet paint and then brush each tissue section with uncolored matte gel.  Once that has completely dried overnight, blend distress ink around all edges for a rustic look.  Finally, add your choice of extra embellishments or accents to finish.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
