Pretty Ballerina Mixed Media Canvas by Annie

Pretty Ballerina Mixed Media Canvas by Annie | Rinea
Hello, Annie here - This month we here at Rinea are having a collaboration with Rita Barakat. We're creating projects using her amazing stamps and stencils. I decided to create a mixed media canvas using Rita's Ballerina Stamp #RB001 and the Princess Variety Artist Pack.
Now, if you are not familiar with mixed media - it's when you combine several types of media (paint, watercolor, pencil/pen, paper, fibers, and stamps-etc) to create artwork.
I create this mini canvas (4"x 6") using the pretty ballerina stamp and the Princess variety artist pack.

So, let's get started by gathering our materials:
Canvas - 4" x 6" - Greenbrier Intl, Inc. Dollar Tree
Plaid/ Folkart Paint(Light Periwinkle20209, Metallic Periwinkle669 & White20593)
Ink - Tsukineko Stazon Jet Black & Memento Tuxedo Black
Heavy Weight cardstock - White - Recollections Brand
Alcohol Markers: Copic - Hair: Y28, E15 & E18/Skin: E000, E11, E93/Lips: RV69, Spectrum Noir - Shoes: PL1 and Artist Loft: Skin: E15
Die - Evaney Stamp Designs: Beautiful inside out
Jewels: Pretty Pink Posh
Adhesive: Aleene's Tacky Glue in Clear & Foam adhesive
Tools: Paintbrush, Cuddlebug die cutting Machine, Tim Holtz stamp platform(optional)/Stamp block 
First, I painted the canvas with some acrylic paints creating an ombre effect. Set it aside to dry. Next,  stamp once on the Blush Pink and twice on the Silver Starstruck paper with Stazon ink set aside. Then, on the white cardstock with Memento ink for coloring. Color with alcohol markers the skin, hair, and shoes. 
Now, trim the Ballerina from the cardstock. Next, from the Blush Pink Starstruck paper cut only the top portion of the dress. From the Silver Starstruck paper cut only the bottom portion of the dress.  Then, adhere one of the Silver paper dress layers onto the Ballerina right on top of that area on the cardstock image. Then, repeat with the next Silver layer this time adding a bit of foam adhesive. Now, apply the Blush Pink layer on top of the Silver layers adding a bit of foam adhesive. Next, cut 3 super thin pieces of Jade Starstruck paper and adhere it to the swing. Set aside to dry.
Now, die cut the sentiment/message you would like to use. I used the circle Beautiful inside/out die so I had to trim away any extra.
Next, it's time to put it all together. Adhere the Ballerina in the center of the canvas and then place the sentiment over the opening of the swing so it appears as if the Ballerina is swinging from the sentiment. For a finishing touch add a few jewels to of the corners in a triangle.
Now, You have a complete Ballerina Canvas. Simple with Rinea and Rita Barakat. Thank you for stopping by today. Be sure to share your Rinea creations with us on Social Media we would love to see them. 
Happy Crafting!
