Mixed Media Key Canvas

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today as a member of the Paverpol Design Team and I've created a mixed media canvas.

I am still getting used to Paverpol and thinking about all the amazing projects that can be created.  Still experimenting, I wanted to work on a canvas. 

Using a 6" x 6" canvas I first painted it black, then dunked Pavercotton into the Transparent Paverpol.  After squeezing out the excess Paverpol, I pulled apart the Pavercotton and placed it on the canvas, pulling it apart and arranging it until I liked how it looked.  I had originally thought about creating something spooky or creepy, but my project morphed as I worked on it.

Once the Paverpol dried, I added color using assorted colors of ColorBox® Spritzers.  I heat set the colors before spritzing the next color so the colors would stay true. 
I used a key as the focal point.  Die cut leaves from Spellbinders and Prima flowers were inked and adhered to the canvas.  A Unity stamp was stamped on a wood tag which was tied to the key.  And a Prima porcelain sign was added to the bottom of the canvas.
Look at all that texture.
Thanks for stopping by today and please stop by the blog to see an assortment of projects we have created.


  1. I am always looking for creative way to do my canvas background...this one is wonderful!

  2. It was a beneficial workout for me to go through your webpage. It definitely stretches the limits with the mind when you go through very good info and make an effort to interpret it properly. I am going to glance up this web site usually on my PC. Thanks for sharingdriveway paving contractor
