Mixed Media Mini Canvas

As a parent and Children’s Ministry worker, I seek advice from the best parenting book there is…The Bible:)  Deuteronomy 6 is full of encouragement and wisdom…This was the inspiration for this mini canvas.

Mixed Media Mini Canvas

I started with a plain mini canvas sold in a pack of 6 at Michaels or Hobby Lobby.

I used modeling paste and a stencil to create the “diamond” background.

Next, I added color with both Distress Paint (“peeled paint”) & a similar shade in a Pan Pastel…finished with Distress ink pad in walnut stain.

I used the same walnut stain to color the mini clothes pins.

I cut the charm background out of a vintage Bible Story Book for Children, sealed with Glossy Accents by Ranger.

Deuteronomy 6:4-9

 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love theLord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
