Altered Art Mixed Media Frame with Art-C with Snapguide Tutorial


Hey there Peeps! Today’s project is a bit different than my regular shabby chic or vintage card. Art- C sent me a big ol box of brand new goodies and asked me to create something for the product release at CHA.  Well you know I am always up for a challenge…and I have found a new love for painting…and mixed media.  And texture paint and stencils.  I created this project on a stretched canvas….a discount store find….great shape and size….but not so nice an image.  I was also thrilled to see that it had a very sturdy particle board base so it would hold up to lots of abuse and wet paint.

I hope I’ve inspired you to try new mediums. I’m so happy to get through my fear of paint. I’m having so much fun creating projects outside my comfort level. It’s so important to grow your skills and try different styles…never just may love it!

  1. Ginny, this is a work of art, for sure. I love all the beautiful layers that you applied to your canvas. I like how you added the wood palates and added the flowers to them. Thank you for the tutorial.

  2. Beautiful project. I have dabbled in mixed media, and like you, love it, but at the same time, a little scared of it. I appreciate professionals like you guiding your fans with tutorials and photos.
