Mixed Media Butterfly Mini Demo
Check out this mini demo of a mixed media Butterfly piece being created on canvas. This is just to show how easy and fun the mixed media process can be.
The video is just over 4 mins. Enjoy!
I used a 14"x14" square canvas
scrapbook paper, hymnal sheets, music sheets
Paper plate to trace
Acrylic paints in bright colors
Various stencils I had on hand (bubble wrap works too!)
A light, and black pastel crayon (chalk or oil pastel works)
A printout of my words
and a black sharpie paint pen
Note: I didn't mention this but I also used the black pastel around the edges to give it a distressed look. You should spray a coat of clear varnish to seal when all is dry. You can get it at any craft store.
Create your own version. It doesn't have to be a butterfly? Use the colors and papers you like. If you do it I would love to see the final picture!
Let's make everything beautiful
