Mixed Media Wednesday @ Prima!

Hey everyone! LONG time, no blog right? I seriously have SO many projects to share that I've worked on over the past month, but as it usually goes, they will all come in a whirlwind at once...isn't that how it works?

Oh, well!

Today's post was scheduled last Sunday as I'm in Vegas at CHA with my sister Kelly Foster...as we speak! So exciting! Can't wait to share stories and photos when I get back :). But for now, I will just leave you with a project of mine that I created for Prima for CHA, featuring Finn's new "Elementals" and "Mechanicals"! It is being featured over at the Prima blog today, along with other mixed media samples provided by some of the other Prima team members- so make sure you go and have a look!

"Prima Canvas Trio"
I loved this set of canvases that I recently bought. I knew it would be perfect for creating something for each of my kids- and what better way to put them to use than with Finn's mixed media-driven products? 

Products Used:


The great thing about creating a coordinating "set" of something is after you get the first one down, the next ones come so easily- they follow a similar pattern with similar products used.

After covering my canvas with gesso, I tore up some book pages and (using the gesso as an adhesive) randomly applied the pieces to my canvas. On top of that I layered torn tissue paper and again used gesso on both top and bottom to adhere. Next, I added one of the *NEW* Elementals Canvas Borders and a bit of cardboard before misting and masking.



I've also used a combination of the *NEW* Mechanicals "Numbers", "Pendant", & "Gear" sets to create a contrast to the soft florals in my clusters. 


SO many things to love about these amazing new pieces!! There's nothing quite like amazing new product to get that mojo going, right?! ;) I hope you can get your hands on some real soon...

Thanks for letting me share with you today :). I will be seeing you when I get back from CHA~
until then, take good care of yourselves~!!
