Love and Memories – A Mixed Media Canvas

Love is in the air

Hello everyone, Charu  here!

First of all, many thanks for all the love you have shown!! I was thrilled with the appreciation I got for my first project with  Instant Image Transfer gel. Hope you like this project too!

As Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, here I am to share a cute romantic mixed media project with you all.

It’s a great project to have in the backdrop of a romantic candle lit dinner for two. {wink wink}

In the first step I stenciled my 8 by 8 inches canvas and sprayed it with Berry Blast Alcohol Splash .


Next, I used the beautiful Little Birdie Watercolor Floral Ballet paper with some chip boards and a lace from my stash to create some layers on the canvas.

Thereafter, I tore some papers and layered onto each other. I also tore the papers and stuck it in strips.

I adjusted the chipboard around it…..

In this step, I am placed the center image for this canvas and I added some beautiful shimmery Little Birdie flowers with other embellishments around it.

I also used the scripture stencil here…..

Using the heavy gel medium, I stuck some other embellishments from my stash around the center piece of this canvas.

At this stage I realized, I wanted to give it one more layer of stenciled effect at the right corner of the canvas.

As it’s a Valentine Day canvas… I thought of using my favorite Hearty Melange in the resin embellishment with Sparkle Gold Dust and some some arty stones.

As a finishing touch I added some coconut twines and Little Birdie felt words and I also cut some paper hearts to add more layers to the canvas. I painted the LUV alphabets in blue.



Love is in the air

And this is my finished project….

I really hope you’ve enjoyed the creative process for this project and some of the techniques I’ve used . Will continue to inspire you with creative projects so that you can use these gorgeous products from Itsy Bitsy !

Thank you so much for stopping by today…

Happy Crafting!

Love Charu
