This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Little Mermaid - Berry Bleu Mixed Media Challenge

Hi Everyone

Hope you all had a good weekend and that your Monday was not too bad!

I have a mixed media layout to share with you today for the Berry Bleu challenge here.

This is the first time that I have actually done a mixed media canvas layout.  I really enjoyed the different techniques and had a good time playing and creating! ;-)

Anyways so here is the result.

I wanted to keep it very natural but also wanted to bring in some florals. So this is the combination of both.
Firstly I did some gesso painting on the canvas and added the corrugated cardboard, and then I did some spray painting and then added all the bits.  I also created texture on the fence with gesso and then also coloured with pigment inks.

Materials used:
Enmarc Dazzles spray inks - Bermuda and Ocean Jewel
Celebr8 chipboard fence
Gesso paint
Prima and Petaloo flowers
Thick twine
Natural shells and pebbles
7 Gypsies sticker
Basic Grey chipboard pieces

Here are some close-ups.

Thanks so much for coming to say hello today.
Perhaps you would like to try a mixed media's easy when you just get going! ;-)
Enjoy your evening!
