It seems that this year will be the “first time in my life” year for me. Since that is so, I made my first mixed media canvas. As I don’t have practice in painting, I had seen loads of tutorials before I started to work. Here you can find some examples in case we are in the same boat ;-):
I followed Julia’s instructions from Cuckoo4Design, but I used more colors than she had recommended, and I mixed the paint with other mediums like impasto paste, in order to get a rougher surface.
So, this is my canvas: Carnival.
