Let's get Dylusional!

Hi Everyone!

I am here with you today to share a couple of bright and colorful canvases (I am also wondering if canvases is a real word?, for the purpose of this post I will say yes). The canvases were created using the super vibrant Dylusions Ink Sprays, embellished with Flying Uncicorn Adornments, Flying Unicorn Lace and finished off with a few small watch parts. The texture you can see in the background is from texture paste, lace, Liquid Pearls and packing tape.

Mixed Media Canvas - Flying Unicorn

Hello Everyone,

Today I would like to share with you a Finnabair inspired canvas. Wow let me tell you this was so much fun to make, it took many turns along the way, a few color changes and at one stage a complete overhaul (to be honest, at one point it even ended up in the trash, let me tell you I am thankful for gesso).

Who is hoarding Flying Unicorn Adorments? I know I sure do. When this lady needed a head of metal hair my Flying Unicorn Adornments were the perfect addition, I made the tough choice to part with a few adornments (quite a few).

Mixed Media Challenge - Flying Unicorn

This month I am hosting the Mixed Media Challenge for July / August at Flying Unicorn. I invite you all to please come and play along!!

Large letter stickers, you either love them, hate them, or love them but never use them. I am on the fence, I like them but never really use them a lot to title my work, I always end up with heaps of leftover ones and often odd letters. So in this case I have used them as my background for my entire canvas and I love how it has turned out.

 Products Used

As you can see below I have used different types of Thickers and also used different types of placement, upside down, right side up, sideways. It doesn't really matter as long as your canvas is covered.

A coating of gesso...

To finish my canvas I have added random sprays of Dylusion Ink Sprays. I waited for the sprays to dry and then added a full coat of black acrylic paint. I let it dry slightly (every so slightly) and then began removing the black paint with a baby wipe. To intensify the color I then added a few more squirts of ink spray. To finish I added a few colored chipboard hearts (which all had a thick coating of crackle accents) and a few small watch parts and cogs.

Finnabair Inspired Tags - Flying Unicorn

Who can guess who inspired me to make these tags? (hint, read the title of this post) yep none other than Finnabair. I so love her work, her designs and the way she utilizes all different mediums and tiny treasures.

My two tags have been created using the always AWESOME Flying Unicorn Adornments.

One more share, this is an old one but the same technique was used to create the above tags and below paper mache horse. Here is the link to Finnabair's tutorial on the horse.

Many thanks for looking, I wish you all a fabulous and creative day.
