Happy Valentine's Day

Today is February 14th 
Valentine's Day.

In honor of it I thought I'd share a 12x12 mixed media canvas I did up recently as a gift for my Mom.

The base is a 12x12 stretched burlap canvas by Tim Holtz.
I added some scraps of patterned paper across it and then scraped Gesso over it all using an old credit card.

I scraped some Modeling Paste through a Crafter's Workshop stencil
and after it was dry misted with some Lindy's Stamp Gang mist in Buccaneer Bronze.
A doily was layered under the photo.

Some random stamping and Washii tape.

A Prima vine was cut apart and tucked here and there.
Chipboard was colored with Silks Acrylic Glaze and layered under the photo as well.

A shot showing the layers….

I hope that today wherever you are you are with your loved ones.

Thanks for stopping by and have an extra special day.

Hi Christy. Thanks so much for your sweet comment. I have to say that I absolutely love your mixed media Valentine canvas that you did as well. What a wonderful keepsake! Love the colors, layers of different patterns and papers and that burlap background really looks awesome! <3 Candy
