Hello everyone, Ivette here with Challenge #22 Buttons & Bows mixed media canvas project. I used this neat Fitztown's image that I colored with my Copic, Multiliner and Spica Pens.
I began by covering the canvas with a light coat of gesso. Then I used my Distress Inks, Spiced Marmalade and Peacock Feathers.
I printed out music sheets of a favorite song called, "The Lazy Song" by Bruno Mars. This fairy was feeling her groove.
I used Mod Podge (glossy) to glue the torn pieces of music sheets onto the canvas. A 6x6 stencil by TCW, Mini Gears was used on both sides of the fairy. The music notes were drawn by hand with my Copic Multiliner 0.05 (blk). Added some jewelry pieces as studs on top of the canvas, as well as two bows and buttons on both sides of the upper corners.
For the wings I used Tim Holtz's Die, Layered Wings and cut them out of transparency. I colored them with my Copic pens.
I had a blue piece of a beaded chain and placed it around her.
Some TH Mini Gears were dabbed in Patina.
The rocks are Spring Fillers by Ashland that I purchased at Michaels. They come in various colors. The song title were from TH's Alpha.
Hope you enjoyed my mixed media canvas. Hope I've inspired you and jump started your creative juices!
