Mixed Media Monday - Vintage Cutie Canvas Art

Welcome back to The Aviary my stamping, inky friends!
Amanda here today, & I am so excited to be sharing a
gorgeously girly Mixed Media Monday with you all!

Isn't this Vintage Cutie Canvas Art just the sweetest?!!
(& it's super easy to re-create!)
Here's how......

I am a scrapbooker by heart, so naturally my canvas artworks usually start with some form of collage. I chose some newsprint ephemera paper that I had in my stash, and gave it a quick tear. 
I then got out my Tropical 4pk Gelatos and started colouring, blending and having a bit of fun!

As you can see, I had quite a bit of fun! 
I even splattered the watered down pink for extra dimension.

Once my canvas was dry, 
I got out my permanent black ink & those fabulous stamps from
 the Art Textures Cling Stamp Set and had some more fun! 
This stamp set is truly a staple *Must Have* for any stampers collection - it's just so versatile, and is perfect for all mixed media creations! 

Next, attach lace and then adhere that divine Vintage Cuties Clip Art image. 

Add pearl trim & start embellishing your canvas......

I added a few 'precious' vintage metals and paper blooms to create interest.

I also wanted to add to that 'fairy tale' feel so,
 I stamped a cute tiny crown, 
 & a fairy friends bird onto some scrap paper.
I then fussy cut them & attached to the canvas, as shown.
Such a sweet embellishment!

And there you have it! Told you it was super easy to recreate!

A really beautiful Mixed Media Monday!
Hope you liked this creation!
