Listen To The Trees – Mixed Media Canvas

Hi everyone

Thank you to everyone who left a comment on my last post.
Always lovely to hear from you and great to have your company.

Today I would like to share a mixed media canvas I made.  A little bit of recycling going on with this one.

Florence Langley CI Mixed Media Canvas Tree 001AWMSm

I recycled an old canvas.  Instead of painting over it I decided to use a piece of script background paper which I painted with two coats of gel medium which made it really durable and flexible.
I then added a coat of one step crackle medium and some additional paint.
Once the base was finished I just added all of the embellishments as seen. A bit of this and a bit of that really.

French Script CI 017 and Four Post Marks CI 124 on the two small tags and on main piece.

Thanks for looking
Take care,
Florence x

    There is something to be said for the amazing trees. Trees make me feel grounded. They really do give us so much. I enjoyed this canvas Florence, very much. Simple things like cardboard can really make the piece. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    This is a great canvas Florence and I love all the extra embellishments you have added. That tree is a beauty and I have it so must use it more myself. x
