I had so much fun creating this 8″x 8″ mixed media burlap canvas. I love all the textures and layers I created on this canvas and seriously you cannot muck it up as you can just gesso over it all and start again if you don’t like how your colours come out.

I didn’t wait for a perfect coverage as I wanted a rustic look.
I heat set the gel medium and then painted over everything with Gesso. I also added some paper flowers, mixed media stones, sisal fibre and leaves that I created using the Sculpture Paste (I had these already made up and in my stash, see my post here to see how to create your own you can use Sculpture Paste in all your silicone molds) I dried everything off with my heat tool.
