My House Mixed Media Canvas

Afternoon, how’s your day been? Had a grotty morning but cheered myself up watching a Pink Panther movie!!


Today’s share is a mixed media canvas using Polkadoodles Little Kingdom stamp set.


I created the background on the canvas board using Faber Castell Gelatos, used stencil and some gesso to create the circles in background. Once the background was completely dry, I added some colour to the circles using FC Gelatos and used a Time Holtz stencil and Archival ink to add the numbers. Emphasised the circles using a brown Gelato. To create more interest and depth to the background used various texture stamps and Archival ink, also used some white gesso with a stencil to add the hexagons. I created the house using stamps from the Polkadoodles Little Kingdom stamp set and black Memento ink, I used Ultimate Graphic paper to stamp out the design and coloured with Copic markers. Fussy cut the house out and adhered to the canvas board using DecorArt Matte Medium. Stamped the tree and flowers directly on the canvas board using Archival ink and stamps from the Little Kingdom stamp set, coloured with Faber Castell Pitt Pens. Sealed the whole canvas using DecoArt Matte Medium, once the Matte Medium was completely dry used FC Pitt Pens to add some shadow and depth around and under the house and tree. Finally used some liquid pearls to add some interest to the tree and the roof.

The Little Kingdom collection, stamp set and digital collection are available at Polkadoodles, click on the piccie below to be taken to the Pokadoodles website.

    Hello Gail. 🙂
    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the stamps you’ve used, and the colours are incredible! They zing out and call for you to admire them … but they’re not bossy. Aww… I’d buy this in a heartbeat if I found it at a craft fair.
    And incredible make from a very talented artist.
    Sending love ~ Cobs x
