Card to Canvas - Colleen Schaan

General Information

One of the most thrilling things about mixed media is the ability to use just about any supply you have on hand. If you have it in your crafty stash, you can utilize it in your mixed-media work. While the techniques in this book use certain products, I encourage you to experiment and make substitutions.

These are some common categories of mixed-media supplies. You don’t need to have everything listed here, but I highly recommend having at least one product from each category to get started. Once you build your skills and experience, you can then start building your supply stash.

MIXED-MEDIA SURFACES

This is most often the starting place. The initial card projects in this book all use cardstock as the work surface. From there, the projects move to canvas, watercolor paper, mixed-media paper and wood. While just about anything can be converted to a mixed-media surface, you do need to consider the compatibility of the surface and the supplies you will be using.

•Cardstock

•Watercolor paper

•Mixed-media paper

•Canvas

•Chipboard

•Wood

•Fabric

TOOLS

I define a tool as something that either applies a medium, or helps direct or move it on the surface. Tools don’t have to be expensive; look around your home and you will find many objects you can use as tools.

•Stencils

•Stamps

•Paintbrushes

•Spray bottles

•Palette knives

•Brayers

•Sponges

MEDIUMS/ADHESIVES

These common craft items are probably the most important supplies in your stash. I recommend having at least three of the following product types:

A gel medium is a must! With a choice between glossy and matte, gel mediums do double duty as both an adhesive and a sealant.

Gesso. There’s no way around it … gesso is an indispensable supply. Use it for prepping surfaces and for adding layers and creating depth.

Add some form of texture paste or gel to your stash and you’re all set! Not only is it fun, but paste can add depth and physical texture to your work—a must in mixed media.

•Texture paste

•Gesso

•Gel

•Spackle

•Decoupage medium

•Glass gel

•Liquid glue

•Tape adhesive

•Glue dots

•Foam tape

•E6000

DRAWING/WRITING MEDIUMS

Even if you never plan to draw a thing, it’s important to have at least one type of writing instrument in your stash. Writing instruments can be used for mark making, drafting a layout, adding color, or adding finishing touches to a piece.

Pens

•Gel

•Glitter

•Inking

Markers

•Dye

•Alcohol ink

Pencils

•Charcoal

•Watercolor

COLOR MEDIUMS

This is by far the most varied category, and with so many possibilities, it can be almost overwhelming! Don’t feel like you need every type of coloring medium on the market; you don’t. Pick one or two to begin with. Once you learn what you enjoy working with, you can start experimenting with others.

Pencils

•Wax

•Oil

•Watercolor

Pastels

•Chalk

•Oil

Pigments

•Crayons

•Gelatos

Paints

•Tempera/poster

•Watercolor

•Acrylic

•Oil

Sprays/Mists

•Airbrush

•Glitter

•Chalkboard paint

•Dye

•Alcohol ink

Inks

•Dye

•Chalk

•Distress

•Pigment

•Hybrid

•Alcohol ink

POWDERS

Powders are what I call the forgotten supply. There are a number of different types of powders, each with its own specific property and use. I recommend starting your crafty cache with a nice embossing powder and growing from there.

•Mica

•Pigment

•Chalk

•Embossing

COLLAGE ELEMENTS

Whether you call them embellishments or ephemera, all of these supplies are used to add layers, texture, depth or color to your work. Found items (like leaves, feathers, hardware and so on) make some of the most interesting collage elements.

•Fabric

•Paper

•Fiber

•Photos

•Books/magazines

•Lace

•Newspaper

•Music

•Vellum

•Metal

•Chipboard

•Buttons

Stamping

The minimal equipment needed and immediate results of stamping make it one of the easiest and most accessible forms of mark making for a crafter. It involves transferring a wet medium from one surface to another to replicate an image.

A stamp often consists of an image etched in rubber, foam or polymer, although found objects can also be used as stamps. A wet medium is picked up with the stamp and then pressed onto a surface, effectively transferring the image.

Individual stamped images can be the main focal point of a piece or multiple images can be combined to create layers and dimension.

YOU WILL NEED:

•Cardstock (can also be fabric, canvas, or other flat surface)

•Stamp (rubber, polymer or foam)
