Mixed Media - Simplify...

Hi,'s another mixed media Monday here in the Korner. :)

Today, I'm continuing on with last Friday's clean-and-simple theme with a CAS 6x8 canvas...

It all started with the watercolor piece in the center. I stamped the image and sentiment onto a heavily-textured 5x7 piece of Shizen watercolor paper before distressing the edges and adhering the paper onto a 6x8 canvas, where I had already watercolored the same turquoise color around the edges. 

I wanted an opaque white texture around the edges, so I used whipped spackle through a couple different stencils for the clock and dotted edge designs...and it was done! Clean and simple and quick and fun!

Stamp:   Unity Stamp Co. "Bloom & Simplify"
Watercolor paper:   Shizen            Watercolors:   Sakura Koi
Stencils:   The Crafters Workshop "Mini Time Travel" and "Mini Halftone Borders"
Art Mediums:   Golden matte gel medium,  Faber Castell whipped spackle
Miscellaneous:   Faber Castell Pitt Artist pen (black medium);   Uni Posca white paint pen

Thanks for visiting today...I hope your week is starting with a smile!

  3. Hello Kathy,
    This is beautiful, simplyfy does not compute with me in my designs.....I sometimes wish I did not feel the need to keep adding; more seems never enough! The palette is so clean and fresh, the flower is stunning.

  4. Wonderful. I love the texture added. I can't wait to try it myself!
