Mixed Media Canvas Tutorial – “To the Sea”

Welcome to a tutorial Wednesday! We have a very special treat today from one of our Social Media Brandwagon Team, Marie Johansson! Not only did she create a G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S mixed media canvas, but she has a whole video showing her creative process! Enjoy!



“I created a canvas using the sea teamed Collection Ship to Shore. This collection is just gorgeous with blue & natural colors which are my favorites. The navy feel goes perfect with all types of blue Tattered Angels products – and I love those…   I found the perfect picture of the sea in one of my friends Instagram feed and the colors matched perfectly. “~ Marie


“Watch the video below to see how I created this layout. It is a step by step tutorial with lots of tips and composition information.”

Below you find detailed pictures:

“I love the cut out elements from the Ship to Shore patterned paper – the seahorse & the anchor looks great on this piece”


“High Impact Paint & Glimmer Glam mixed with water create a cool background together with the structure from modeling paste & a stencil”


“Adding the title with a piece of cut out sentiment is a perfect way to make the most of your cut out sheets”
