I wanted to get this post in before I head off to Stamford, CT for the amazing Art is You retreat. Yes, I managed to make some swaps to share with lovely people. Last year, I used Tyvek (check out my video), this year, it’s raw canvas.
I used raw canvas to make mixed media book marks. The layers on this are probably about 15 or so. It started out so differently than I planned, but that’s what art is… no thinking.. start and see what happens.
I gessoed the canvas; let dry. Started adding layers of Golden fluid acrylics after I spritzed some water. Just brushing around with a large brush. Let dry in between each wet layer that you do.

Then, I stamped on some dress pattern paper and collaged that on with decorative napkins using Collage Pauge.
Teal paint in between collage. White paint marks with plastic cover and bubble wrap and adding stencil coloring.
Pushing light molding paste through stencils… LOVE.
Adding gold modeling cream and Posca markers for mark making. That is what finalized it for me, all the scribbles from the markers. All the beginning layers are buried in there deep.
Then cutting up the canvas to make the bookmarks, changed it all. Each little marker was a piece of it’s own art. This is “The Key to my Art”.
My business cards are dangling from the top.
I hope you enjoyed that little ditty. It sure was fun to create these for many creative people.
I’ll be taking pictures and posting when I return. I hope I am lucky that some of you will be there again and I can’t wait to meet some new friends, too.
Thanks for stopping by and your support… always.
