Mixed Media Monday Tutorial: Prima Princess Stamp & Watercolor Pencils Canvas

It's Tracey back with a new project to share with you from the June "Birds of a Feather" Kit, featuring the Creativity Add On. I just adore how I continue to be challenged by the mixed media products each month in the gorgeous kits and add ons. This month Melinda included one of the gorgeous Prima Princess stamps and the Sweet Pastels Prima Watercolor Pencil Set. I had so much fun coloring her as the focal point for my "Dream" canvas and have created a technique video for you sharing my process for coloring her. I also grabbed my Prima Spring and Fall Watercolor Pencils from a previous kit and share the numbers of the colors I use in the video.


Enjoy the video!

Sharing photo details:
A close up of the watercolor detail.

I adhered the watercolor paper to an 8 x 10" Canvas, and used Prima Water Soluble Oil Pastel Crayons from a previous kit to color in a yellow wash across the background. I then stenciled paint from this month's Color Add On around some of the edges and used 49 and Market stamps from the Elements Add On and Store to create a grungy mixed media background. I also brushed on several colors of Distress Oxide Inks and edged the canvas with Pan Pastels.

The word "Dream" seen in the full project photo was created by placing sticker letters on the watercolor paper, then coloring and stamping over them. Heat them a little with your heat tool for easy removal. Once removed, I used a fine tip marker to doodle around the letters and brushed watered down paint across them to color.

I adore these flower die cuts in the Main Kit BoBunny Noteworthy set, paired with a single Prima dimensional flower from the Flower Add On. I started out with mostly dimensional flowers, but realized that it took the focus away from the beautiful princess, so these die cut flowers ended up being a perfect complement without drawing too much attention from our girl. I've also scattered a few of the sweet butterfly die cuts around the canvas.

I snipped the gorgeous Blue Fern Studio Curling Corner Chipboard from the Elements Add on in half and covered it in three layers of embossing powder, heated between each coat. I started with completely covering it with white embossing, then with glittered Cotton Candy embossing powder that mostly covers the piece, then light sprinkles of Raspberry Sherbet from my stash. By partially covering with the second and third layers, you can see hints of all three colors.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you've been inspired to grab your kit and Creativity Add On to create a home decor piece with this beautiful image.
