A lace background on a canvas by Yvonne Yam

If you are just starting on your mixed media journey, consider using lace to create beautiful textures on your background instead of creating a background from scratch.

I adhered lace on my 8 x 8 canvas, then added colours with watersoluble crayons. Some PearlEx was added to create a sheen.

I did have fun applying mediums to my chipboard lovebirds to create textures.

Then I added gorgeous vintage buttons from the Zeus and Zoe store. You can see that I couldn't decide which ones to use so I used them all! *winks*

Try using lace for the base of your next canvas...share your link in the comments so that I can come take a look!  Cheers, Yvonne.

Wow lace is so beautiful to add texture to a back ground and it would be a good way to use those scraps that are not big enough for anything.. thanks for the inspiration!
