Hi friends 🙂

Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here. How are you today?

Bob n Betty will soon be celebrating it’s 3rd Birthday on 28th April, yay!! Everyone at the Bob n Betty family is very thankful for all the love & support bestowed on us. To celebrate, there is an awesome giveaway & a Mega Contest already under way, to check out all the details & for your chance to win superb prizes, please visit the Bob n Betty Facebook page.

Today, I’d like to share a Nature Inspired Mixed Media Canvas. I’ve used papers from the new and gorgeous “Classics” Decoupage Specialty Papers Collection. They are so versatile and the prints are full of vintage goodness. A must have in your stash! The stunning owl image which is the focal point of my canvas and the titles are from the Classics Collection. The prints in this collection make for brilliant focal images as well as classy backgrounds.

Process:

Took an 8 by 10 Canvas Board & applied a thick layer of heavy white gesso on it. To create texture in the background, created grooves in the wet gesso with the end of a paint brush & added few mini beads. Once, it was dry, sprayed on colors. For the focal image & titles, fussy cut elements from one of the papers in the Classics Collection, created a nest with sisal, dry hay, colored gauze, feathers and then adhered the owl & titles to it. Also, added flowers, die cuts, wood slices & lace around the nest to form a visually pleasing composition. Then did background stamping with black archival ink and for shine, applied Prima’s Metallique waxes to the background. For additional texture & shine, applied Finnabair’s art stones & glass glitter using 3d Matte Gel to some of the areas.  Then, dry brushed some white gesso onto the flowers and created white ink splatter. In the end, distressed the edges of the canvas with black soot distress ink.
