Create- Mixed Media 6x6 Canvas with Prima Finnabair Collection + Video

Here is another project created for the Prima blog.

I created a mixed media 6x6 canvas and combined Finnabair's vintage trinkets products with her new mediums.
Prima's Finnabair Mixed media products are fantastic and I'm just so grateful to be able to create with them.

 I wanted to create a very artsy canvas to showcase my creative side and the happiness it brings me every single day. Creating art for me is like getting in touch with my soul on a deep level and I'm so grateful for it. I even incorporated two old paint brushes as I wanted to include a touch of "me" in my project. I have a step by step video below on how I created this canvas. Hope you enjoy it and it inspires you to create more art.

Butterfly Wings Mixed Media Canvas- Prima's Finnabair Products

This mixed media canvas canvas was created for Prima using the new Finnabair Mixed Media Products

I wanted to create a collage style mixed media canvas using some of the new Finnabair products. I mainly used the Art Basics Soft Matte Gel Medium, Craft Matte Gel Medium and Modeling paste. I was able to seal paper and colour on the background and create texture using the modelling paste.

I really like the quote I made up as I really feel its very meaningful to me and you guys all know how much I love butterflies so its befitting that I created this canvas.

I used a few Color Bloom sprays to add colour to the canvas: Vintage Coal, Gilded, Gold Foil and Tangerine.

as you can see, the butterfly is 3D and sticks out of the canvas as if its ready to take flight!!!

Here I'm holding the wings with my hands so you can see they are loose. I covered them in gel medium to make the wings much thicker and malleable.

Finnabair Art Basics Soft Matte Gel Medium,

The book of Love & Gratitude- Prima's Forever Green Collection

This is another project I created with the new collection from Prima: Forever green. 
With the way the world is right now, surrounded by so much hatred, all we need is lots of love and gratitude to send some positive energy to those in need. That is why I created the book below as I'm grateful each and every day for everything that I have.

I've altered a simple notebook cover to create a book of gratitude as a gift for someone special. I've tied it up with ribbon to have it ready for giving. It is blank inside so people can write their grateful thoughts of life.

I've used the new Forever Green Collection with papers, 3D Stickers, ephemera and flowers to create a natural looking theme to the book.

For the background, I used some Finnabair Light  paste to create a stone pattern using one of the new Prima Stone stencils. Then I sprayed the stencilled area with two bright Color Bloom Sprays.

I've captured different angles of the book so you can see the 3D effects and be able to see the work it took to create it

This collection is full of natural elements like birds and butterflies and I fussy cut them to include in the cover of this book.

the script Providence vines were the perfect natural accent for the book.

This is the back of the book and it has no embellishments. It only has the texture matching the front.

846763- Forever Green- Watch them grow
575892- Forever Green- Ephemera
