Flowers & Leaves on my Mind


How about a Mixed Media Canvas with Modelling Paste as a Favorite Medium.

Lately been loving the flat panel canvas, from a gift shop for two bucks a packet. Just fabulous. Plus the new texture or modelling paste and some distress inks on tissue paper.

Here is what I came up with. .just love the texture on the tissue paper, using distress inks (barn door, dusty concord, wild honey). Crumpled and when heated creates the veins, soooo cool.

The bottom left corner is dry. Love the veins.

Completely dried.


With the modelling paste, I created texture on the canvas panel, when dried overnight, I glued on the coloured tissue paper with mod podge.

I did not get a pic of that but you can see on the picture below, the texture and colour of the paste and tissue paper.


Here is the whole canvas.

I love the leaves, stamped in Forrest moss and crushed olive then coloured with water brush. Same with the butterflies. Made sure there was some silver glitter too. The flowers I had in my stash, all sort of colours and sizes, with bling of course.


Stamps used :-

STAMPlorations - Thankful Grateful (leaves) and

KaiserCraft - Bonjour (big butterflies)


I really enjoyed creating this canvas, especially the textures. Must create more. I have other projects to share soon, so stay tuned.
