Mini Christmas mixed media canvas Falalalala Video Tutorial

Mini Christmas mixed media canvas Falalalala Video Tutorial

Hello my dear friends,

I’m back tonight with a mini Christmas mixed media canvas “Falalalala…”  video tutorial. A tiny little treasure filled to the brim with Finnabair mixed media goodness! πŸ™‚

Hope you’ll like it!

I started by collaging some Finnabair fabric and a few scraps of paper from old books using 3D gloss gel, then I added a coat of white heavy gesso and dried everything with a heating gun.

For my next step I spread Finnabair Light paste through the Stars stencil using a palette knife and dried again with the heating tool. I added a light layer of colour using Art Alchemy acrylic paints in Rich turquoise and Deep Waters, few sprinkles of Mica powder Rust and Lindy’s Stamp Gang Frozen Jack frost spray.

While the canvas was drying, I created a coil out of a length of Prima Marketing wire thread, chose some awesome Mechanicals and started painting them using some fabulous rust paste. I just love this finely textured paste, it’s definitely one of my favorites!

After everything was dry, I attached a piece of cheese cloth, all the “rusted” metals and a chipboard star with the hot glue gun.

I decorated my tiny balsa wood trees by spreading some Finnabair texture paste White Sand through a piping bag and then, while the paste was still wet, I sprinkled Mini Art Stones and white Art Sugar on top. They looked just perfect! πŸ™‚

For even more texture I added Snowflake paste and Art Stones to my canvas and then scattered some Mini Art Stones on top to create a lovely heavy snow effect. Can you tell I’m in love with these art stones? LOL

I painted the canvas using more Art alchemy paints, Rich Turquoise, Emerald Green and Opal Magic blue-gold (my favorites!!!!). I also added a touch of heavy white gesso. As a final touch I splattered some diluted red rust paste and white gesso. I have also added a greeting to my canvas (a diecut from a very dear friend. Thank you Chris! πŸ™‚
