Hi CCB lovers! I am Ioulia Deligiannidou (julD) from Greece. I live in Thessaloniki, it is a seaside city, the second largest city in Greece. I am so happy to be a Guest Designer at Canvas Corp Brands blog. It is such an honor to be here today. Thank you so much. I loved painting and crafting from my early years, but instead of becoming an artist, I became an engineer who loves to create things in her free time. So,crafting is my hobby. I love to create with whatever I can get my hands on. Mixed media fancinated me because I can compine many techniques and materials. My favourites are clay, wood and metal and I love creating texture in paintings.
I have made three mixed media projects for you.
“This is a fabric wall pocket for summer memories.
I used a blank board for mixed media art and I glued natural seashells and elements made of clay, 3d balls, a piece of cheesecloth, twine, metal embellishments, a small bottle and glass circles on it. I applied gesso and crackle paste and then painted it with tattered angels mists, high impact paint and glimmer glam paint. I made a wall pocket from a piece of fabric and glued the board on it. I hung it with wire from a driftwood.”
I used these products from Canvas Corp Brands: 7Gypsies Architextures™ Artboards – 6″x6″, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Partridge in a Pear Tree , Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Aquamarine, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Turquoise Blue, Tattered Angels High Impact Paint – Light gold, Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam – Luck O’ the Irish
“This is a mixed media painting on an mdf board. An old lantern is on a table next to a plate and two herrings are hung on the wall.
The wall was painted with three colors and a spatula . For the table I gave the sensation of wood with modelling paste. The lantern is an amazing embellishment from 7gypsies Architextures collection. I screwed a hook on the wall and hung two herrings (collage) with a twine.”
I used these products from Canvas Corp Brands: 7Gypsies, Architextures™ Treasures – Old Lantern, Tattered Angels High Impact Paint – Light gold
“The third project is a small city made of air dry clay on an mdf board. The background was made with modelling paste and stencils and then painted with tattered angels mists. The wings are embellishments from 7gypsies Architextures collection. The sun is a piece of paper from a book.. I glued it on the sky and painted it with watercolors and High Impact paint.”

Your art is simply amazing Ioulia!! I love all the texture and the variety of colors from deep, mysterious ones to bright, cheerful ones you used on your projects!!
PS Six years ago, I have visited Thessaloniki; my very good friend (Debbie Douros) came from there and some of her family still lives there by the sea. A really beautiful location in Greece.
