Last year I was browsing in one of my favourite craft stores (Kaisercraft) looking for something to spend my gift voucher on, when I saw some cute wooden jungle animals on sale for a few dollars each. I bought a couple and stored them away in my craft cupboard for a rainy day.
The perfect rainy day came last Christmas, when I thought I would have a go at making some canvas art for Mario’s niece and nephew.
I pulled out some scrapbook paper and pens, and got to work, using two 6 inch canvases from Riot Art and some wooden letters from Bunnings.
I painted the letter and animal shapes, and decorated them with scrapbook paper. I also covered the canvases with scrapbook paper, which took a fair amount of time to decide on, as I have way too much!!
I got in some great lettering and embellishing practice too.
It was so fun getting to work with – literally – a blank canvas. Mixed media isn’t something I tend to do much, but after this project I might have to start thinking up some more ways to practice – and make a dent in my scrapbook paper collection! :)
