Inspirational Dream Canvas

Hello! Maggi here today to share with you an inspirational art panel.  I’ve used the Boho Dreams paper collection along with some mixed media supplies to create this panel.

Let me show you how I made this.  First I cut an 8 x 8″ piece from a paper from the Boho Dreams paper pack. Then I applied a sticky sheet to the back of the paper so that the paper would be securely attached to the art panel.  This will keep the paper from buckling when mixed media is applied. (I distressed around the edges before adhering it to the board.)

Next, I used a floral stencil and masked on some floral patterns using white Mixed Media Paste.  After that dried, I misted with Berry Blast and Gold Rust mists and allowed that to dry.  (You can speed up the process by drying with your heat gun.)  Then I streaked yellow, red and white paint randomly on the canvas.

I took a 6″ x 6″ piece of paper from the collection and tore all around the edges and then added 3 pieces of washi tape.

I used a combination of mists and paints to color the 6 x 6 paper.  While that dries, locate the two punch out doilies shown below.  Ink over the doilies to give an aged appearance.  I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  Now apply some paint randomly around the edges of the doilies.

Paint a scrap of corrugated cardboard white and adhere near the bottom of the canvas. Then adhere the smaller paper, centering as shown below.  Heat emboss the Scroll Border with embossing enamel and attach to the corrugated paper.  (I used Stampendous Aged Rose Embossing Enamel.)

Now it’s time to decorate with flowers and the two doilies.  Use some foam tape to pop up the doilies and place one so that it partially covers the other.

For a finishing touch, dry brush some white paint over the flowers.
