Creating a Mixed Media Canvas

I’m sharing a mixed media canvas with you today. Hello, everyone, Marilyn here and I’d like to show you how I created this canvas with adhesives from wet, Dual Tip Glue Pen, to dry, Premium Double-Sided Tape, that are available at Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.

Creating my Mixed Media Canvas

Start with paper doilies that I adhered onto the canvas with the Dual Tip Glue Pen. This creates instant textures on the background.

Once the doilies were dry I adhered patterned paper to the canvas using Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4″.

Tip: to avoid air bubbles, I started from the top to the bottom. For more texture, I stenciled with modeling paste.

Adding Details to my Canvas

To pop up the “my love” chipboard, I used Crafty Foam Tape in White.  Then I added some flowers and buttons that I secured with Dodz Adhesives Dots Medium.

With the Dual Tip Glue Pen, I gave the canvas more textures adhering 3D powder randomly. Then I painted with a light blue acrylic paint.

For the final touch, I adhered some gems with the Dual Tip Glue Pen.

I hope you find some inspiration. Thanks for stopping by, until next time!
