Art Nouveau Canvas

Art Nouveau Canvas by Liz Dixon

Hi Everyone.  Have you seen the beautiful new rice papers & all the lovely MDF shapes that Powertex UK now have in stock?  I couldn’t wait to get making as there are so many Mixed Media possibilities (as if there weren’t enough already within the Powertex range!!)
I particularly love the Art Nouveau papers – elegant ladies in flowing gowns, which go perfectly with the swirls & curls of the Acanthus MDF shapes.
The canvas was given a base layer of Ivory Powertex & once dry, the Rice Paper was applied with Easy Coat Mat.
I raided my stencil collection & added texture to the canvas & MDF using Easy Structure, before getting busy with the Bisters.  The Rice paper was a great place to start for colour palette inspiration!
Paper trim, more MDF, paper flowers & some self-coloured Stone Art clay Ivy leaves completed the complilation, before dry brushing with Easy Varnish & Colourtrix Pigments 
I wonder what your Powertex inspiration will be today?

We would love to hear from you!
