Mixed Media Canvas with DieNamites and Ken Oliver Stick It

 Hi!!! I am so excited to share my mixed media canvas today using Die-Namites Dies along with Ken Oliver's Stick It which you can find at 
 I began by first spraying a 8" x 8" canvas with Dylusion Sprays. Allow it to dry completely. 

 Place a piece of Ken Oliver's Stick It Adhesive to a piece of Ken's Studio pattern paper. Die cut out Spring Doily (DN-1159) from the center of the paper. Place prepared pattern paper on top of black card stock. Place  Spring Doily (DN-1159) to center of black card stock.
 Apply to top and bottom of dry canvas black gesso using Woodgrain Stencil with palette knife. (Lay matted piece down to determine where to apply gesso) Allow to dry completely.
Add the matted piece to top of dry canvas using pieces of Ken Oliver's Stick It.
 Spray black burlap ribbon and rosette ribbon with Vibrant Turquoise Dylusion Spray, dry completely and place on canvas.

 Place Ken Oliver's Stick It to a piece of Ken's Studio pattern paper, die cut Bird Song (DN-1058), Place around the Spring Doily (DN-1159) Add an image to center of the
Die cut two of the Flowering Branch (DN-1044) from green card stock and place with flowers to the front of the canvas. Fussy cut two of the flowers from Ken Oliver's Studio pattern paper and add to front to canvas. I hope you enjoyed my mixed media canvas today, make sure to check out our week long Ken Oliver inspiration pieces along with taking a peek at both Die-Namites Store, Blog and Ken Oliver's Products.
