More mixed media July challenge

This is my design canvas for More mixed media July challenge: anything goes + optional pastel colours.

I made the background of the canvas (about 12" x 16") with a mix of white gesso and various acrylic paints. The two corner pieces were left over form a card from a set bought long ago.

I used two That's Crafty stencils, randomly dabbing the top one with sparkle medium champagne and the bottom one with sparkle medium cinnamon. I inked the Just Rite cling Fleuriste Newsprint background stamp with versafine onyx black and stamped on to a piece of white tissue paper. I then wetted around it with a paintbrush to tear and adhered to the canvas with mod podge.

Flowers from Hobbycraft, the white ones touched with some of the cinnamon and champagne sparkle medium.
