Imagination will get you Everywhere

Hi Chris here and today I am sharing my first mixed media canvas I created for Sin City Stamps. I want to say that this is so different from what I normally create but I loved the quote and I just let my imagination go!
Sin City Stamps Supplies
Die Cuts- Ballon, Frame, Flower Outline, Daisy Border Chain, Stars
Silver/Blue 1/2 Round Flat Back Embellishments
Other Supplies -  canvas, Gesso, Molding Paste, Beacon Fabric Adhesive, Glossy Accents, StazOn Ink (Brown), ColourArte Twinkling H2Os (yellow rose, sky blue, persimmon, moss green, blue bayou), miscellaneous small alphabet stamps, brown journaling pen. Graphic 45 Paper,  paper lace doily, sand paper
To create this canvas I started by first applying Gesso to my entire canvas. I then added some texture to my background by applying some molding paste over the Pattern 2 Stencil
I then added some patterned papers and die cuts onto the canvas. 
I continued layering a few more dies cuts and some lace.  You'll notice that the colors don't necessarily match.  That won't matter once I am done. 
In added my gear charms and bits of a paper doily and then applied gesso again over the whole project. 
I then stamped my Globes Stamp using my StazOn Ink. 
I then randomly painted my canvas using my ColourArte Twinkling H2Os. I just kept laying colors until I was satisfied.  I then painted my balloon with Twinkling H2Os
I then used a combination of my alphabet stamps and my journaling pen to add my quote. I topped the balloon with my butterfly button.  I then sanded my edges to smooth the edges and lightly sanded my gears to allow the metal to shine through. Once again here is my finished project. I hope you are inspired to step outside your comfort zone and create something!   Just let your imagination take you away!
