Art Canvas- Flying Unicorn May Kit of the Month

My last share for the Flying Unicorn May Kit of the month is a canvas created with the Mixed Media Passion Kit.

It comes with a 6x12 canvas which I altered below.

Most of the Mixed media products used here come in the kit. They are all 13 Arts Products from Ayeeda such as Black Primer, Tattered grid stencil, Gold paint, Mica flakes, Micro-beads, and 3D powder. The mixed media products I added are Tangerine colour bloom spray, Finnabair white crackle paste and Soft matte gel. I also used Shimmerz Dazzlerz Muddy Buddy which comes in the kit.

You can see the gritty texture of the mixed media products below.

Now to explain to you about the embellishments. If you look at the canvas from above you can't tell there's a light bulb stuck in it. That's why i took a side view photo. We recently changed a bunch of our light bulbs to more efficient ones in our house and so I saved all the old ones for my art. I cut a hole in the canvas and stuck the light bulb through. I used glue to hold it together. Then I added some soft matte gel and some mixed media texture on the glass.

The metal pieces are from Flying unicorn and from Prima and they add a touch of shine to the piece.
The ART word is also from Prima and its an altered Canvas word.

Finally, I want to explain what is the big plastic circle under the light bulb. When I opened my Soft Matte Gel from Finnabair I realized that the small bit at the bottom had dried up completely. I pulled it slowly out of the tub and it came out intact. So I repurposed it as a plastic circle and added some mixed media touches.

You must have visions of art flying through your mind. The light bulb is totally cool - and is the piece from the Soft Gel that you repurposed. Your canvas is gorgeous - I love the textures colors, metals and, mostly, the light bulb! And, the bee is wonderful too. Can you tell that I love this canvas??!!
