Mixed Media - Moment In Time

Hello! Dawn Rene here with you to share a mixed media canvas I made for Gina's Designs with lots of their incredible chipboard shapes!

The canvas size is 12" x 12" and it was designed around the theme "Life's Just a Moment In Time."

4. Paint the chipboard shapes with gesso (I didn't paint all of them with gesso - Paint work well on gesso, stains and sprays not so much)

5. Let everything dry!

6. Layer on all the chipboard shapes and embellishments (this is my favorite part)
