breathe--a textured mixed media canvas

New supplies are always inspiring--this month I had the pleasure of trying out some yummy Royal Langnickel acrylic paints.

So sorry I didn't take process photos--basically this 6x6 canvas first got a layer of Vintage Text papers, adhered with gel medium.
Lots of layers of paints, a stamping of the word "breathe," (it was one of those days, know what I mean?), and some scratching into the barely damp paints . . .

(If you've never tried gel medium, Altered Pages has a great little sampler size of glazes and the gels--the perfect way to try these products out without committing to a big buy!)

Thank you for stopping by, and a Happy Thursday, to you!


  1. Too much texture is never enough!! Lovely canvas!

  2. Love the vibrant colors and texture! Great job!

  3. Really wonderful! Love the colors and layers.
    Awesome message, too.

  4. Yummy colors and such an appropriate message this week. Love!

  5. Beautiful colours on this inspirational canvas.
    Actually, this is a word that there are times during a day when I will stop and say "breathe".

  6. Yes, I totally understand the "it's one of those days." I sent you a link via email describing our day today. Josh and David are both okay.

  7. Trisha, this canvas is fabulous! Great colors and textures. I love it!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
