Project Cut Files
Start with a blank 8 X 10 canvas. I purchased mine from Dollarama. Tear various pieces of patterned paper and adhere to the surface of the canvas with matte mod podge or gel medium. Once assembled, apply a layer over paper as well. Allow to dry. Begin adding layers by applying acrylic paint or sprays using various stencils. There are no rules with mixed media, so just have fun!
Using the attached CCR file, cut the pieces out, layer them together, then mod podge them to the canvas as well. Be sure to add another layer over the designs to seal them to the canvas. I cut the grass with my Gypsy so it is not included in the CCR file. I welded pieces of grass, sized at one inch, together using the Plantin' Schoolbook cartridge.
Continue adding more layers until you are satisfied with the results! Some ideas are rub ons. stencils, markers, border and background stamps, molding paste, acrylic paint. Remember, have fun!
