My Mixed Media Canvas Set

Referring back to a tutorial that I did in June for a 9 x 12 mixed media canvas, I thought I would share with you two more canvases I did to make a set of three.
They have been done the same way as the first one in June.  
Here is the first one I did first with a couple of closeups.

The second and third canvases were done using the same methods as the first.   I first applied my background media items such as moulding paste with a stencil, tissue, dry wall tape, etc.   Painted everything with white gesso.   I then sprayed the background then I hot glued the flowers, etc. onto the canvas.  I used different items such as the water well.  Again I painted all the flowers and trinkets with white gesso.  I then painted the flowers and leaves individually using different colours and different mediums such as distress stains, water colour paints and sprays using a small paint brush.  This one took a bit longer to do the hand painting as there are more items.

Here are few closeups of #2 canvas.

And the third canvas, again using different items to create a scenic look.

And again a couple of closeups of the third canvas.

I currently have them hanging on my wall, side by side.
 Giving them a scenic look makes them look quite nice in a series.
I hope you enjoy.  Can't wait to get started on my next series.
Until next time
