Vintage Mixed Media Canvas by Preeti Datta

Hi folks !
Good Morning :) 

I'm excited to share my first project for CrafTangles. 
Today, I've created a Vintage Mixed Media Canvas- "Create".
I wanted to achieve an old, antique look with a rusty, patina finish. For this, I've used mixed media products by CrafTangles including their Patina Effect Texture Pastes, Moss Effect Texture Pastes, Art Wax, Texture Paste, Gesso & Acrylic Soft Gel and other products from Hndmd.

Vintage Mixed Media Canvas- Create


1. Took a canvas board as the base and applied CrafTangles Clear Gesso to it. 
2. Applied CrafTangles White Texture Paste through a Damask Stencil onto the background.
3. To colour the background, used distress paints, inks and waxes 
4. Next, prepared elements for the focal cluster. Starting with chipboards. Colored the large swirly chipboard with CrafTangles Moss Effect Texture Paste- Brown. This gives a wonderfully textured look. Very similar to brown rust. Then to add some rusty details to it, rubbed on CrafTangles Patina Effect Texture Paste- Metallic and CrafTangles Art Wax- Turquoise onto the textures. This gave a rusty finish to the large chipboard. Next colored the ornate frame blue with CrafTangles Patina Effect Paste- Light Blue and distressed the edges of the frame with Vintage Photo Distress Ink
5. Coloured some cheese cloth by spraying it with water and applying CrafTangles Patina Effect Paste- Metallic to it. This gives an orangish-red rusty look. 
6. Created die cuts using CrafTangles Dual Textured White Cardstock. Then coloured them using CrafTangles Patina Effect Pastes.
7. Fussy cut some elements from CrafTangles Vintage Rosette 4 Elements Pack along with some more vintage clocks from my stash. Distressed their edges with ink and a paper distresser.
8. I chose a Tim Holtz Baseboard Doll as my focal element. Now all the prepared elements were layered onto the canvas to create a visually pleasing composition and then adhered using a strong glue and CrafTangles Acrylic Soft Gel. I added pieces of chipboard in between the layers to give dimension and also added sisal behind some of the layers to create more interest. I also wrapped Jute Twine around the canvas to add visual interest and texture.
9. Now the finishing touches, I added a couple of metal embellishments by Mitform Castings, a clock charm and a couple of Tim Holtz clipping stickers. Then, adhered glass glitter and art stones to some places around the focal cluster using CrafTangles Acrylic Soft Gel. Then dry brushed some of the embellishments with Heavy White Gesso, created splashes using watered down Vintage Photo Distress Ink, White Gesso & Light Blue Patina Paste

Wow, this is so cool and the textures look amazing! I am surprised to see the versatile use of the Dual texture white paper. I used it for blending, got great results and seeing paste being used on die cuts makes me feel, this paper is going to be a hit!
Thanks so much dear :) xoxo
