Love you mixed media canvas

Hi everyone! Playing around with a 8.5 x 11 canvas and ended up with this mixed media tribute to love.

I started with some newsprint designer paper and a bit of mod podge. After it dried, I added a layer of molding paste. To get the texture, I used the Ranger texture tool. I really like that there are several to choose from on the ring and had fun playing around with them.

Once the molding paste dried I added some color using Faded Jeans and Pickled Raspberry spray stain. I blotted it off here and there to dilute the colors a bit.

The heart cut outs are done using the shakers die from PTI. I cut them out of thin chipboard and painted them. Once dry I stamped the word Love from Winnie and Walter and then heat embossed it.

Roses are from Kaisercraft that I glued on. Leaf dies are from Memory Box and Elizabeth craft designs.

Lastly, I tucked a swirl behind the solid heart and added the silver dragonfly.

I think this is my favorite piece of mixed media so far! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Valentines Day!
