Hostess Monday With Denise. Mixed Media Art Using Digital Stamps

Here is my finished product.  What a cute decoration for winter!  Be creative.  
You can use any digital image in Mixed Media!  
Another fun use of wonderful digital stamps!  The possibilities are endless!

For this hostess Monday, I am showing you how to use Digital Images in mixed media.
Supplies needed:  Canvas of your choice,  Images of your choice 
January Cupcake setJanuary cupcake set (colored)

Magical winter sentiments

 (I used Wendy's adorable images of January Cupcake and Winter Sentiments), cardstock or papers of your choice, Acrylic Color of your choice, stickles, assorted brushes, and or glitter, canvas, and assorted stickers and or embellishments, modge podge or decopage medium of your choice.  Brown ink for distressing borders and embellishments.

First paint edges of canvas the color of your choice.  I used cerulean blue acrylic paint on mine.

Tear paper/cardstock to fit over canvas to show just a little of the blue painted border.

Using decoupage medium (Modge Podge) of your choice, cover canvas.  Add paper and add more decoupage medium on top.  Let dry.  I applied brown stazon ink with a sponge on edges for a distressed edge.

Lay out digital images, papers and stickers.  I colored and shaded my January cupcake and winter sentiment with copics.  (hint: before coloring and  decoupaging image let them dry overnight to prevent smearing) 

After choosing where images go on canvas attach all items on canvas with decoupage  by applying decoupage on both sides of each image.  When dry add one more layer of decoupage over entire canvas.  

Here is the final product!  Thanks for stopping by!
