"In His Presence" by Donna

Hello my peeps. I'm a couple weeks behind on my mixed media canvases for the "Take Me Deeper" project. I've actually stepped down as a moderator but I love this project and I am determined to have 52 canvases at the end of the year so I am going to keep participating.

This is the canvas that I created for the 2nd week of May (a little late... LOL!)

I love all the texture and grunginess that I got on this canvas. I used stencil masks from Hazel & Ruby, Liquitex paints and my Mix'd Media Inx CHOX from Colorbox to make this canvas.

I created a peeled paint background, added the stencil masks, then added a layer of white paint over them. This allowed me to remove the letters while the paint was still wet and I still have the fun girly grunge texture on the letters and in the background.

I rarely write on my canvases but I felt like this one needed a little something to the left so I pulled out my Spectrum Noir pens because they work best over painted surfaces.

After I outlined the words with the pens I used my Mix'd Media Inx CHOX to add some grunge to the edges as well as some stamped leaves and swirls. The CHOX dry fast but to make sure that they are sealed to the canvas I added a layer of Matte Medium.

Product used:
Mix'd Media Inx CHOX - Sparrow, Patina

Hazel & Ruby - Stencil Masks - Central Park, Brooklyn
