Ghost of Lenore Canvas

Good Morning Crafty Friends, I'm here to share a card I made for the New Release over at

I got to work with the ethereal Ghost of Lenore! Just perfect with Halloween next month!

So I've been getting into Mixed Media lately and this canvas was actually my first go at it after Watching Angela, from Angela Holt Designs on YT here. ;o)

I started with an 8x10 Canvas and primed it with gesso. I stenciled with texture paste and added torn Bits of paper with Gel Medium. I then had fun spraying with different Spray Mists (Lindy's Stamp Gang, Distress Stains, Heidi Swapp Color Shine and Fireworks).
I colored the ethereal image of "Ghost of Lenore" with SN Markers- Iused Greys and Violets as I thought it lent the image a Ghostly feel. ;o)

I really enjoyed making this Canvas as there are so many things you can use! Buttons, Die cuts, Paper pieces, paints, Pearls, old Jewelry, Flowers, metal's endless really!

Once I glued all the items down, using Glossy accents (for the metal pieces) and Hot glue gun, I painted everything with white Gesso. I then used my sprays to bring in the color- again, I kept with muted colors, like purple, blues and pinks. I then did another layer of Gesso on the tips of everything. I used some Inka Gold in Lava Red and rubbed it in certain places for some shine. And finished with some bling and pearls. 

Here's a closer look at everything
