White gesso and embellishments mixed media art

8 x 10 mixed media art basing from winter weddings. Everything is simple and in white, gray(silver) and cream colours. I did not use any other acrylic paint colours. This canvas did not need any different colours. This is a project where you only use white gessos and trinkets from your stash.

Materials list:


  • 8 x 10 blank canvas

Cardstock design

  • Cardstock from AliExpress https://bit.ly/2EenqNj. I bought it from this seller. Stuff from AliExpress will take longer to ship, depending on your location. I will be using some of the mini cardstock designs from this scrapbook set as well.

Thrifted item(s)

  • Music books
  • Christmas ornaments


  • Prima – Finnabair – Art Basics – Heavy Body Gel – 8.5 Ounces. I have been using this for a few months now, and it hasn’t failed me yet.
  • E6000 transparent industrial glue. The strongest glue that I have used. I like using it for heavier embellishments and attaching larger objects together in my projects.

Stencil and modelling paste

  • Wall stencil design from AliExpress https://bit.ly/2V1ITyL. The quality of this was good. I have used it a few times already in my previous projects.

White gesso

  • Artist loft white gesso from Michaels. This is thinner in consistency. I would recommend using a more opaque gesso, especially for priming. It will save more time.


  • Cardboard boxes. Not exactly an embellishment, but it is great for elevating the focal point which allows a dimensional look.
  • Tonic Studios – Rococo Fairy Dies – Luna https://bit.ly/2V60UvT.
  • Resin frames from AliExpress https://bit.ly/2X8RJfZ. I bought these frames from this seller since July 2018. Quality is great.
  • DIY vintage designs from using hot glue sticks and Prima IOD Moulds
  • Laser cut wood design from the Dollar Store
  • Artificial flowers from Alibaba.com.
  • glitter vein garland from the dollar store
  • vintage keys from the AliExpress
  • vase fillers from the dollar store
  • swirly stickers from the dollar store
  • Flat bad acrylic gem from Michaels
  • BoBunny – Sweet Life Collection – Layered Chipboard Stickers
