Rainbow Mixed Media Canvas by DT Shylaashree

Hello Friends,

I am Shylaa Shree here today to share my first post on my DT assignment with Rainbow Craftykari team.  Here is my inspiration for our current challenge theme "Rainbow Friendship"

I have a made a special artwork on a canvas for my son who celebrates his birthday this month. My daughter insisted me to make something for him.

I started with an A4 size canvas and applied a coat of white gesso to prime it. I then created a background using stencils and modelling paste. I then used my homemade colour sprays to add colour. I randomly spritzed them and moved them around. I then picked my photo, matted it and adhered it to the canvas with foam tape. I chose butterflies to embellish the canvas as my kids love them. I then randomly added 3D Stickles and sequins. I then printed out a saying (you could even use a phrase sticker or a stamp) and added it to the canvas with foam tape. I then used paper varnish to give a final protective coat.

Materials used:

  • Canvas
  • Sakura Modelling Paste 
  • Acrylic Paints 
  • 3d Stickles 
  • Sequins 
  • Tim Holtz stencils. 

Hope you are inspired! I can't wait to see your creative work for our current challenge theme. Link your projects here.

Friendship Layout by DT Priya Mishra

Hello Crafty Friends,


I'm Priya Mishra and am very excited to share my first DT inspiration post for Rainbow Craftykari blog. I have created a project as an inspiration for our Rainbow Friendship Challenge.

Here's what I made...

The theme is absolutely wonderful and I wanted to make something CAS this time. This has been my weakness and I struggle to leave white space with pastel shades. So this was a challenge I took up!

The base is a 12"*12" white cardstock. As the theme is Friendship, I took the photo and the sentiment from google and printed them. For my layout, I began by brushing multi medium onto the whole paper. This creates a very good base. Then, I created texture using a stencil (Bubbles all over) and texture paste. Next, I began adding colour. I used Distress Inks and a brush to spread the colours. I have incorporated all the colours of Rainbow. The chippies are from Papericious and are brushed with a thick coat of white gesso. After arranging the photo and sentiment on the base I added some butterflies, flowers and a few sequins. I layered a doily under the photo mat. I finished it by sprinkling a few drops of colours with a brush.Here are a few close ups of the layout

Supplies Used:

  • 12"*12" White Cardstock 200gsm
  • Rangers Multi Medium Matte
  • Stamploration "Bubbles All over" Stencil
  • Papericious Chipboard Heart Mesh
  • Papericious Sequins Mixed Bag 
  • Distress Inks (Seedless Preserves, Pink Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feather, Mowed lawn, Mustard seed, Cracked Pistachio)
  • Doily
  • 3D Butterfly Stickers
  • Flowers
  • Photo and sentiment from Google Images
