Silhouette UK: Mixed Media Floral Wreath Card

Hello, good to see you again and I hope your week is off to a great start. Today’s project features the printable cotton canvas to create a mixed media floral wreath card. This media allows you to print any design out onto cotton canvas, which is more sturdy and thicker in comparison to the normal printable cotton sheets from Silhouette. This cotton canvas is adhesive too, meaning it makes it easy to apply to objects should you wish to.

My idea was to use this canvas, well as a canvas to paint on. It is a different material to regular canvases you buy from an art shop and if you really do want to use this material for a lot of heavy paint, I would advising priming it first. However, as I was doing a small amount of painting I was able to get away with it – though note you paint will absorb into the cotton canvas. I just applied a couple of layers of the colour to blend and colour. Originally, I was going to apply this to a thick piece of heavy chipboard to create a minute painting to use as decoration. However, I got an inky handprint and therefore needed to trim it down. Instead, I turned it into a mix media card.

mixed media floral wreath card process overview:

Import your design into the Silhouette studio, and turn the line to a light grey with a weight of 0.5pt before sending to print. The colour of the line is darker enough to see but light enough not to show through your paint. Colour the design in with your choice of paint, I used cheap acrylics and they worked well. 

Next, trim the design down and peel off the adhesive backing – apply this to a thin piece of card. Load this onto your PixScan mat and cut out on your Silhouette machine (For instructions on how to do this, check out the link at the end of the post for the Silhouette UK Blog).

To assemble the card, apply Tonic Nuvo Mouse through a striped stencil and allow to dry. Foam mount the wreath onto the card and add a layered die cut sentiment. To make the die cut sentiment to stand out, offset any additional die at the back in a darker colour. To finish, add Tonic Nuvo drops to the background.
