May Canvas - Flying Unicorns Mixed Art Kit

Flying Unicorns Mixed Art Kit for May

From the beginner to the avid mixed media artist our Mixed Art add on kit will surely please you. Our Mixed Art kit will always come with a canvas and mixed media art supplies to advance your skills as an artist.

This month's kit comes with a canvas , some Ayeeda art products  and fun embellishments.  Use as much or as little as you want from the kit.   The Ayeeda paints and micas are easy to use and apply so smoothly. 

This canvas was super super easy.  I used the sponge to apply the Ayeeda black paint from the kit, then accent with the Gold Ayeeda paint.    Next I painted the filmstrip chipboard and glued it to the canvas. 
I dabbed some gle medium here and there and accented with beads. That's about it.

My sentiment says" Surely happiness is reflective like the light of heaven".  I thought it appropriate for the photos of a beach vacation with my husband.  Of all our vacations,  we seem to enjoy the beach the most.   It is a magical and special place for us.  

 Mixed Art ...get your kit here.
