Mini Mixed Media Canvases Again! Set of 6! Tutorial Inside (Lots of Pics!)

My love for mixed media is really coming loose these days.  I'm loving being able to use what I have and make wonderfully pretty things! I have So. Many. Things. so it's seriously nice to go through my stash and use things up as I find them!

Here is another set of canvases I've created, with a tutorial!

Most of these things can be purchased from the Flying Unicorn store - I received most of the product used in past monthly kits from the Flying Unicorn. :)

The tutorial starts... now!

This is where I started  - A 6-pack of 2" x 2" canvases!

Here, you can see that I've used two packs of Prima wooden icons from two different collections. I thought it appropriate when I spotted the "LOVE" icons for these canvases!!  I added the frame to add more depth.

Here I used my 13arts stencil that I can't get enough of to create a lined background on the canvas to add  texture!
I gesso'd each wooden icon individually since I wasn't exactly sure the route I was taking for these canvases.

Here I sprayed all the canvases and wooden icon pieces with the "I'm late slate" Lindy's spray. I just kept adding layers, until I ran out of the spray. So happy to call it done!

In this pic, I 'm not sure how well it will show on different people's screens, but I did use this PanPastel cake thingie to add much shimmer to the canvas.
More colour & shine  was needed, so I added some of the BoBunny copper glitter paste  to the canvas, frames and the edges of the word LOVE.
After adding the BoBunny paste, I used my 13arts spray on some cheesecloth. Then I layered the cheesecloth on the canvas under the frame and the word love, and then sprayed the canvases each with one spritz of the 13arts spray.

The canvases looked lacking in glimmer, so I went over each canvas again with the PanPastel cake thingie! 

This is the final result. As you can see, I added two tiny rosebuds and added the BoBunny glitter paste to those as well.  :)

Thank you so much for stopping by!
