Masculine Mixed-Media Canvas

Today I have a mixed-media canvas showing off my just-graduated son, Billy, and Prima's new masks, metal trinkets, wood embellies, and more!

I started off by painting my canvas...then spraying colored mists and Perfect Pearl Sprays over a Donna Downey mask. I love the look of Perfect Pearl Spray on tn has such a gorgeous sheen to it!

After drying I stamped random clock images and added gold, red, and white paint touches. 

Tip: make sure you add stamps and paint to the canvas sides for a finished look.

Next adhere your photo on a piece of cardboard and tear edges for a distressed effect.

Embellishing with Prima's newest metal trinkets by Ingvild Bolme is perfect for a masculine touch. I love the look of the zipper pulls on this project. They add depth, dimension, and just a solid look for a guy project.

Glue gears and zipper pulls sweeping across the canvas...then add some flowers, wood pieces, and twine touches for a fabulous project.

So grab pictures of your guys and make a special canvas just for them! Prima has everything you will need to make it a showstopper!
