"Seize the Day" Mixed Media Layout by DT Jaishree Bansal


Hello beautiful crafters,
Today on my table is a very easy to make canvas using the left overs from your stash. The techniques used in this project are very easy to follow and you will be able to make this beautiful piece of art in no time. So dig into your stash and get set go!

List of Supplies used:
  • Immix White Gesso 
  • Immix Texture Paste 
  • Immix Crackle Texture Paste 
  • Expressions Craft Doily Stencil 
  • Prima Impasto Paints- Azure & Lemon Peel 
  • Prima Metallique Waxes - Red Amber & Mystique Turquoise
  • Distress Ink - Ground Espresso 



Before starting always prime your canvas with gesso — white or clear your choice. 

Next choose the stencil of your choice and create the design randomly here and there. I have used a doily stencil to create a design in the plus sign way. 
On the remaining area I added crackle texture paste to give it the grungy look I wanted.
Next is to figure out your focal point and the elements that go with it. I chose this steampunk winged heart chipboard from Mudra. I heat embossed it using Yellow versa mark ink and some clear gloss embossing powder. 
I wanted to give this embellishment a 3-d effect so heat set it 3 times. I also heat embossed my clock dial in black first and then added the rust colours to make it look grungy. 
Similarly, to fill in the blank space around the focal point I used some random chipboard letters I had in my stash. I painted them with rust effect pastes from prima.
I used impasto paints to colour my background and added some leftover jute cord to add more dimension. 
To distress the edges I used ink blending tool and distress ink pad in the colour ground espresso.
Here are some detailed pics!
