How To: Mixed Media Canvas






  • Stampendous Jumbo Tulip Stamp
  • May Arts Ribbon: 395-18-33; WP14; 390-58-09; 393-25-01
  • Canvas (size up to you)
  • Variety of papers, tissue paper, acrylic paints, inks, watercolors and markers
  • Gesso
  • Gel Medium
  • Washi tape
  • Punchinella
  • Molding paste Stazon Ink



After preparing your canvas with a layer of gesso… It’s all up to you to create!  I put layers of assorted papers on the canvas and covered with more gesso, dried.

Then it’s on to creating with lots of layers of paint, ink, stains and markers. Once happy with your background stamp your image using Stazon ink. You can then color it with paint or watercolor (your favorite choice of medium) Use your ribbon as stencils and make sure to add to you canvas. I also used it to hang my canvas. Just think outside the box and have fun!
