Dreamy Square Mixed Media Mini Canvas

I have a quick post today to share a little project that I recently finished.

It's become apparent to me that mini art is my thing.  Veering away from my typical minis - ATCs - I delved into mini canvases this time.  I found the 4"x 4" base at Hobby Lobby.  It's about 1/8" thick and covered with gessoed canvas.  I knew what I wanted to use on it as I recently finished Marjie Kemper's Inventive Ink class.  Feeling pretty comfortable with Distress products and what I could do with them, I was kind of wondering when I signed up if I was throwing away cash.  Not true.  I learned a lot of little tips and techniques from Marjie. She's an incredible teacher and if she's over this way I'm definitely signing up for a live-and-in-person class! This is what I came up with after being inspired by her.

I used Distress inks and stains, dye ink and modeling paste as well as some ephemera and thread.  I'm happy with the way it turned out.  I hope the person I'm sending it too likes it as well.

Have a great day!
