Mixed Media Project

Made this project on canvas using a variety of items, Gesso, and spray paint.
This is the first time I ever used Gesso...I need practice :(    
I ended up with several cracks in it.

Here is a picture of the items I glued onto my canvas:
Here is a picture with the Gesso applied to it:
I then sprayed it with the ink colors - Summer Sky, Angel Pink, & Dandelion.
After it all dried I printed out the Scripture Psalm 126:2     I sprayed it with the Angel Pink color and then attached it.
Here is the final project:


  1. When I saw your first picture, I wondered where in the world you were going with this, but it turned out great! I think the cracks add a lot of character, so don't fret about them.

  2. Great work with the gesso. Different brands have different effects, but I like the cracks. Thank you for joining us at Scrapping Everyday Miracles.
