Mixed Media Madness!!

Hello All Lanette Here!

Today I am going to share a mixed media collage, My first one ever!!!

Lets start by taking a look at my canvas, then I will show you how I made it :)

Sin City Supplies Used: Rosette Hearts Dress forms plates of Rubber.
(Plus a bit of trimmings from a plate I'll show you the trick later)

Other Supplies Used: Beacon 527, Quick Grip & 3 -in-1 Adhesives, Liny Stamp Gang Mists. Inka Gold Rub, Prima Glitter & Beads. LOTS of  Chipboard & random trinkets from my stash.

Now lets look at my process......

I started by building my canvas by gluing random chipboard pieces, metal trinkets and buttons to an old canvas.

After my glue was dry I covered everything with 2 coats of gesso.(That's why I was able to reuse a canvas I had given up on.)

While my gesso was drying I took some time to mount my stamps. and I had a fun idea! 
Finally it was time to start laying down some color!!!

Next I went back and added a bit of gesso
and Inka Gold to highlight some pieces.
After that layer was dry, it was time to add a bit of
stamping, glitter, trinkets and beads to finish of my canvas,
 Which brings us back to......

I may still go back and add a quote but for now I'm pretty happy with my canvas.
I've been wanting to try this technique forever :)

Now just a few details just for fun!

Here you can see the extra detail 
the random stamping adds to my project.
