Hi friends and welcome back!
Today I am sharing a mixed media project for 49 and Market, it has been a long time since I have dug into my mediums, honestly, I do not consider myself a mixed media artist, but I do like to dabble, play around and have fun.

I have been wanting to do a canvas and had some Vintage Artistry Teal Papers on hand, and some florals I felt would coordinate with what I had in mind.

The Canvas is a deep Edge ( meaning the edge is over an inch thick) and I reversed it to create a shadow box kind of idea. Cutting papers ( 10×10, 6×8, and 5×7) distressing them with an edge distresser. I used Prima Chipboard and moulds.

I added some rust and paint to the chipboard clock and mounted that on the 5×7 paper, and made this my center focal point.

Using three packs of Blooms I ruffled them all up, some I misted with water to get them to be a bit more pliable. Others, I added gesso to tone the color down. When I had everything in place and glued down, I added art stones and splatters of paint.
