Mixed Media Canvases using Rita Barakat's Heart Wing Stamp

Hi there,

Today I am sharing some Mixed Media Canvases that I created with Rita’s Heart Wing Artfoamie stamp. The stamp measures 5 ¾ x 3 ½. The size of the stamp is perfect for these canvases.  I loved the various layers of texture in the project. The Heart Wing stamp is so versatile. The canvases measure 4 x 6.

I began this project by applying gesso to the burlap canvases.

Next, I added some ink to my craft sheet and inked the Heart Wing stamp with the ink. I stamped the Heart Wing stamp onto watercolor paper and then cut it out with scissors.

I then adhered the Heart Wing stamping to the canvas. I also added some gessoed paper straws.

Next, I added some flowers, scripted bulb and dyed ribbon to the canvas.

Next, adhere a wooden word or sentiment to the canvas.

Then, using a foam brush, apply gesso to all elements of the canvas.

Lastly, using a paintbrush, tap on complimentary inks onto the canvas and repeat all steps to create an additional canvas.

I really enjoyed using the Heart Wing stamp on these canvases. It added great visual texture and looks perfectly distressed. The stamp can be found using the link below:

Thanks so much for visiting today...:)
