Mixed Media Monday - Grinch Home Decor

Grinch Stamped Mixed Media Canvas by Dana Tatar for Paper Wings Productions

Hi Paper Wings fans! Dana here today sharing a home d├ęcor piece that I created with some of my favorite color mediums and Paper Wings Productions stamps. How The Grinch Stole Christmas is one of my favorite holiday stories and I had a lot of fun creating this project!

I covered a piece of heavy-weight cardboard with gesso and torn pieces of sheet music. I then added color with Gelatos, random stamping with several shades of archival ink and white rub-ons.

I found a fantastic image of a hand holding an ornament printed on a brown paper bag from Trader Joe's that served as a great focal point for this piece. I cut the image from the bag, covered it with a layer of gesso, and then added color using Gelatos and oil pastels.

I finished the project with a double-loop bow and a quote.

Pin it!
