Mixed Media with Shari Carroll: A Cup of Color

Mixed Medium with Shari Carroll

Welcome everyone and Happy Saturday! It’s Shari here with a mixed media canvas full of color inspired by my surroundings of fall.

I’ve created this canvas to include a variety of texture, a mixture of color, and a bit of shine!

The background starts with cut papers that are overlapped with crumpled tissue on top. After a coat of Distress Crackle paint, I’ve added Walnut Stain ink to get some dramatic effects.

The die-cut leaves were colored using Distress stains by dripping the stain directly on to moistened watercolor paper.

Finally, everything came together with a die-cut foil cup to hold all the colorful clippings.

  1. This is truly a cup of color! So beautifully crafted…the foliage in a mug is a delightful design–tfs, stay well.

  2. Gorgeous is the first word that came to my mind too … this might be my all-time favorite of the mixed media you have done (although they are ALL fabulous). Thanks for sharing your amazing talent with all of us.

  3. This is terrific, Shari! S
    I’m so glad to see your video and project! When you splattered the metallic paint over the leaves, a smile spread clear across my face. It was the perfect touch to finish off this bouquet! I’m in love with the background! 💞👏👏👏

  4. Wow! Did I ever enjoy watching you create this one. The canvas texture was amazing. Your leaves were lovely and what an easy way to get that effect. I would never have thought of that. This piece was amazing!
