Mixed Media World - Guest Designer - DecoArt Canvas

Hello Everyone!

I am really excited to be here today as the Guest Designer for a brand new mixed media blog called THE MIXED MEDIA WORLD! My friend Ingrid has started a new crafty journey and I am thrilled and honoured to be here to support her with her new venture.

For their first ever challenge they have chosen the theme ANYTHING GOES! This is an easy one ladies, so let's all head to our craft rooms and get messy with it!! For my mixed media project I decided to do my first mixed media canvas using some new DecoArt and Tim Holtz products. Hope you enjoy.



I have been dying to use my new Sizzix / Tim Holtz Mixed Media die set, and this was the perfect project for that. I have used the Latticework die from the set to add some texture on two of the corners and then I threw on some micro-beads and flat black pearls here and there to catch the ink dribbles.


I added this beautiful design below with the new Tim Holtz Flourish stencil and some texture paste. I hand dyed some cheesecloth using Tim Holtz paints Peeled Paint and Broken China.

The background was done with several layers of DecoArt Americana paints in Ebony, Titanium White, Irish Moss and Whispering Turquoise. I used the Weathered Wood Crackle medium to get these wonderful cracks in the paint. I changed my mind at the last minute about what green to use, so the wrong bottle is in the picture.




The bird is also Tim Holtz, from the Flights of Fancy stamp set. I stamped it with Ranger Archival ink Jet Black and then coloured it in with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass and Shabby Shutters.

The flowers were cut from Joy Crafts Flower 4. I painted them with DecoArt Irish Moss and Whispering Turquoise and then coated them with Crackle Medium. A little Titanium White DecoArt paint on top and then I dribbled Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass and Shabby Shutters distress sprays all over the petals.




The feathers are from the new Tim Holtz Feather Duo set...LOVE THIS ONE!! I used the marbling technique with Peeled Paint and Broken China paints, embossed it, then highlighted the veins with Ebony DecoArt paint. I splashed it with Tim Holtz's new colour CRACKED PISTACHIO ink spray and a little Picket Fence.




I am entering my DecoArt Canvas into the following wonderful challenges:

That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. I read and appreciate every single one! If you have any questions, please let me know.

  18. OH! VERY EASY, I'll put one together in 5 minutes!!!!!!!!!! I DON'T think so! Pamellia I really would love to be in your craft room when you are working on your cards, perhaps only then would I be able to, perhaps, do the background? the other things would take another few months to get into my mind. Another beautiful project I love the colours too.

  30. Hi Pamellia,

    You never cease to amaze me with your stunning creation my friend. They are amazing, I love this one, love the design colors and all the little elements you add. Loved yesterdays 'Green' one too. You always add wonderful textures to your creations which really make them stand out. I am seriously looking at purchasing some of this crackle paint you use as I love the finished result it gives.
    Hope you have had a fabulous weekend.

    Love & Hugs

  45. Wow! WOW, WOWWWW! Pamellia, your creativity knows absolutely no boundaries! I think this is the first canvas I've seen of yours??! Although everything you do looks as it should be a canvas hanging in an art gallery. This is just amazing, my friend. I could go on an on, but instead I will take my time to drink it all in! I would love to have this hanging on my wall! The other day my daughter asked me if money were no object what would I want; I told her a bigger crafting area. I'm changing that to a week to spend just crafting and laughing with you! I know I would be a much better person for it; perhaps with no more skill than I already possess, but with a head full of amazing inspiration! Sensationnelle! Hugs!
