"Live In The Moment" Mixed Media Canvas

Hi everyone... hope you all are having a nice August month and trying to stay cool. Here in California it's been unbearable in triple digits. When I saw this months Art Anthology mood board I fell in love because it brought a coolness to me and was super excited to create with it. 

For my Art Anthology design team project I purchased an inexpensive frame from the dollar store and wanted to alter it. I began by adding texture using Mud Texture Paste and art stones mixed together. Then the colors I used to play with were AA's Colorations in Siesta Key and Patience. 

Painted and embossed using Seth Aptner's Baked Enamels on my chipboard pieces and some pretty flowers enhanced with seed beads and mini sequins add that bit of glam that I love. 

T!m's paper dolls and quote chips always lend for some fun and interest and they completed my frame perfectly I believe. I hope you were inspired and enjoyed this project. For your pleasure I have included a YOUTUBE to watch my process. I am brand new to YOUTUBE so I would love for you to SUBSCRIBE to my channel  HERE ! Thank you for stopping by and wishing you a wonderful month !
