Mixed Medium Texture and Shine with Shari Carroll

Mixed Medium with Shari Carroll

Welcome everyone! I hope you’re all having a fantastic week!

I’m here with a mixed medium project I’ve created. I was inspired by texture and a bit of shine. My goal was to bring together several different types of elements to make an interesting arrangement to surround the “M” on my canvas. The thought behind this canvas is of course… Melody. She just turned 4 so you might notice some of the Tim Holtz Idea-ology that I chose highlight the the number 4.

I started out with an 8×8″ canvas and Matte Gel Medium to glue down some Tim Holtz Botanical Collage paper. This gave me a background design base to build upon. From there I added plain white tissue paper and let it wrinkle up a bit for an imperfect look.

I sketched and cut out the “M” from Tim Holtz Textured Surfaces and glue it in place next to an Idea-ology Measurement piece. I added Evergreen Bough and Seedless Preserves Distress paint in drips to add color. I used Prima Art Stones for texture to fill in the corner of the “M” and ruler. I painted the Bo Bunny Laser cut Foliage, Idea-ology Butterfly and art stones.

One element that I added was a Tim Holtz Assemblage ball chain necklace with a charm which fit around the canvas perfectly without any adjustment. I was actually quite proud of myself that I figured this out! It goes to show you if you don’t try it, you’ll never know!

To finish everything off, I added in some Prima Diamond Pebbles and Nuvo Muted Muave Hexagon confetti along with a few spatters of Distress Mica Sprays.  Fun isn’t it?
