Mixed Media

hello ladies, first I need to apologize for the rather dark photos. It was already 5pm when I took the photos today but I know I will be busy over the weekend so I thought I give it a try anyways.
I got recently hooked on Mixed Media Youtube videos.. spent hours watching them. I did start to purchase some of the items the ladies use but boy this is a whoooole new world and I need quite some more STUFF hahaha.
For now I tried with things I have had on hand and some supplies I just recently purchased to create a little canvas with one of the new Tilda’s from the Animal of the Year Collection.

I am not going too much into details.. here is the short version, first I painted the canvas with Gesso to prep my surface for the background painting. Than I used Faber Castell Gelatos and a water mist bottle to create my background. Faber Castell Gelatos worked well and were fairly inexpensive to purchase. I added die cuts (gift from Tammi) and some texture with modeling paste mixed with green paint and a stencil. I also used several Magnolia stamps to stamp onto my canvas. I will list all those below as always.
Thanks for looking – have a wonderful weekend
