Take Time – Making Art on Printed Cardboard

Hello, Julia Cotrim here sharing how to make some awesome mixed media art on printed cardboard from Canvas Corp. For my project, I used the design called Time – we all seem to never have enough of it so my message is… take your time, enjoy every minute…

Hello, Julia Cotrim here with a mixed media creation on Canvas Corp Printed Cardboard: Time.

I love how this printed cardboard turned out! Just perfect for a home decor!


My idea was to combine layers of paint, mist and modeling paste with this wonderful Canvas Corp Printed Cardboard: Time

A 12×12 natural kraft cardboard print that is the perfect base for mixed media projects, junk journals, scrapbooking layouts, cards and so much more.

The screen printed art is permanent and acts like a resist.

The amazing High Impact Paint dries to a smooth, slightly gloss finish and it is perfect for your DIY needs including painting furniture,

accessories, repurposing items, painting burlap signs, stenciling artwork and more.

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist are available in a wide range of colors, each developed with a unique recipe of color and glimmer to create amazing results.

Just a touch can make all of your projects shine.  You can mist all or part of your project or dip and apply with a brush for amazing results.

Love love love all these products!

For embellishments, I fussy cut the beautiful flowers from Aga Baraniak Bohemian Romance: Love So Sweet and Floral Paper Pieces.

This collection brings together Water-Media Paper for the black and white prints and introduces a new paper Textured-Media Paper for the colorful pages bringing out their stunning art and color.

The cherubs and clock are from The Graphic Fairies Blog.
