Oooh Mixed Media!

I always feel quite artsy when I attempt a canvas!

Yesterday I had the house to myself, so I got out a small canvas, put on my pinny and clicked to Lynne Mizera's  tutorial.

But immediately, a problem..... step one uses paper towels and I don't have any! Then I remembered a pack of tissue paper I'd bought from a Paper Artsy stand at a show and then forgotten what I'd intended to use it for. I inked this up with Distress Oxide Inks and water and used it for my base layer. I think it gives a chalkier effect.

As well as the Distress Oxide inks, I used stamps from two different Paper Artsy sets, book paper, Distress spray, acrylic paint, gold watercolour splatters, a homecut stencil and some Nuvo crystal drops.
