Imagine - Mixed Media Canvas

As you may know I just recently started experimenting with Mixed Media.
I was encouraged by Nicole, owner of the shop CraftAddiction.
As I showed her my first attempts at Mixed Media we joked about how I could join her design team.
But after my beach canvas she became serious and officially asked me to be a guest designer for the summer. A request I obviously couldn't refuse. So here I am and this means you'd probably will be seeing a lot more Mixed Media the next few months.

Zoals sommige van jullie al weten ben ik echt net gestart met Mixed Media. 
Aangemoedigd door Nicole van CraftAddiction deed ik mijn eerste pogingen.
Na mijn strand canvas vroeg Nicole me als gast designer voor de zomermaanden. 
Een aanbod wat ik natuurlijk met geen mogelijkheid kon weigeren. 
Vandaar dus nu vandaag als gast voor CraftAddiction.
En jullie zullen dus in de komende tijd wel wat meer Mixed Media van me voorbij zien komen. 

Today I'd like to show you this Pastel colored Mixed Media canvas.
It started as a 20cm by 20cm blank canvas.
I glued some pieces of designpapier on it using Modpodge and gave it a layer of Gesso.
I also used some lace fabric and structure paste to give it some dimension.To add color I used ink Sprays (Psst and CraftEmotions).
I decorated the canvas using all sorts of embellishments.

Vandaag wil ik jullie dit pastel gekleurde canvas laten zien. 
De basis is een vierkant canvas doek van 20 bij 20 cm.
Ik ben begonnen met laagje Gesso en een paar reepjes gescheurd designpapier, gelijmd met Modpodge. Hier overheen heb ik een soort breed kant geplakt en dit vast gelijmd met textielverharder. 
Vervolgens ben ik het canvas verder gaan bewerken met structuurpasta en ink sprays (Psst en CraftEmotions) en allerlei verschillend decoratiemateriaal.

I added some Wycinanka chipboard and metal embellishments. I also used my hamdmade Tissue Paper Flowers (watch the video here)
You can  see some leaves and roses made out of lightweight clay (Creall Do and Dry).
If you'd like to see the whole process of this canvas you can watch the video below :).

Naast Wycinanka chipboard en metalen embellishments heb ik mijn eigen gemaakte bloemen van tissue papier gebruikt (die video vind je hier). 
Ook vind je nog een paar rozen en blaadjes terug, gemaakt van lichtgewicht klei (Creall, do and dry). en gekleurd met ink sprays en Nuvo mousse. 

Ben je benieuwd hoe het hele canvas van begin tot eind tot stand is gekomen? 
Dit is de video :)

Ik ben erg nieuwsgierig naar wat iedereen van mijn canvas vindt, dus laat voor even een berichtje achter:). Je vind een lijst met gebruikte materialen onderaan deze post.
