Alcohol Ink on Canvas
Alcohol inks can be used on a variety of surfaces including canvas for a mixed media application. I started by coating the canvas in a thick layer of gel medium. I placed some torn pieces of scrapbook paper in the corner of each canvas in a neutral color using the gel medium as well. Once this dried I began layering different textures and shades of browns/metallics. I used bubble wrap for the larger circles, laser cut scrapbook paper to stencil the swirl shapes, and plastic wrap for another texture. I also used a mister to spritz more color onto the canvas. Once I had all my layers and textures just the way I wanted them I used alcohol ink along the edges and turned the canvas to allow it to run towards the center for an additional element to the canvas.
I used the following to complete this project:
Large bubble wrap
Laser cut scrapbook paper
Patterned scrapbook paper
Brown, white, & metallic paint
