Product Matchup: Canvas Corp and Faber Castell

Hi everyone, Rhea here showing off my mixed media chunky canvas created for the Canvas Corp and Faber Castell blog hop. Don’t forget to comment below to be entered into the $50 grand prize pack, and stop on over to Faber-Castell to see what awesome stuff they’ve created this week!

Soul Restoration_1

This project was inspired by all the great mediums that Faber-Castell sent along.  I wanted to take the time and explore each of their properties.  

Soul Restoration_5

The gesso made for a perfect first layer on my fun chunky canvas from Canvas Corp.  

Soul Restoration_2

I used the whipped spackle with a stencil to achieve the cracks in the background. I love the light texture of this product.

Finally, I played with thier glaze and added chopped up blue gelato and a little bit of glitter to make another great dimensional layer.  

Soul Restoration_4

Once I had my background done I layered on my focal item and some embellishments with a very strong glue to make this special mixed media piece.
