Tribal Canvas

Hello my Scrappy friends,
This is a special project because it is a mixed Media style!  In my normal crafting I usually scrapbook along with many other things but mixed media is usually reserved for my canvas paintings.
I used the chipboard pieces “Dream Catcher corner & Tribal Feather skinny strand” from the large variety at Southern Ridge trading company!
I collected many off the wall items like buttons, small bows, crocheted doilies and assorted torn papers pieces.  I added all these in a style that flowed well with a heavy adhesive.  I then covered the entire canvas with white Gesso and let it dry.  I took the chipboard pieces and covered them in white paint and let them dry.  Keep in mind this was not a quick project with all the drying time.
After everything was dried, I inked and swiped with several different supplies.  The chipboard pieces had several colors of distress inks to blend into the finished project.
I added beading and feathers to incorporate the chipboard pieces to pull it all together.
The end result is a multi mixed media piece with a tribal feel!  To see more information, see Southern Ridge Trading Company at #southernridgetradingcompany and
Happy Crafting Deonna
