Distress Oxide Mixed Media Canvas Tutorial


What a fun time I've had this week playing with my new Distress Oxide pads.  I created this happy little canvas as a nod to warmer days a coming.


Some closeup details of this yummy DOX background.


Make sure to check out the full background tutorial at Stamps & Stencils.



I layered my found relative with various DOX inky papers and Spellbinders wreath dies, also inked with DOX.


I just love this little girl!  I am part fish, so she and I have a lot in common.  :)


I used a combination of Prima flowers with my new Tim Holtz Small Tattered Florals die.  These yellow flowers make me so happy!  I used Art Stones for my centers.  The leafy die is by Verve Stamps.  Thank you for visiting today!

That is a lovely summery page, Autumn, much needed here where there are 80-mile-an-hour winds at the moment! Gorgeous playtime with the Oxides. I've been having my first dabble with them and having a fabulous time (got a PA post due this evening so can't share til tomorrow).

I'm so excited about this lovely canvas, Autumn! I love your work with the ditress oxide inks. The background is stunning and the addition to texture paste is brilliant. I JUST ordered my set of the 12 ink pads today from Linda's shop. I am super excited to play with them, and now that I've seen your gorgeous project I am counting the days until mine arrive.

Marty Fishman said...

This is a happy little canvas, and I love it! Beautiful colors and embellishments and love the new DOX inks. I didn't know you liked to swim, Autumn, you should have put your picture in there (although she is a cutie!). Hugs :-)

Team Clark said...

I don't have many childhood pictures, but you are right! I do need to dig up some personal photos to use in my collages. Thanks Marty! <3

Sara Barker said...

Fabulous first play with the DOX! You have inspired me more than you will ever know! I had my first play with mine the other day, and it was a total wash out! I did end up using one with a stamp and I was impressed. I am VERY impressed by your sunny background here and your adding the DOX to paste! So clever, you! So you are a fish?! Not me! Perhaps we should swap addresses! I'm a hilly billy, and it's been awhile since anyone has seen me in a swimsuit!! Tee Hee! Off to have a look at your tutorial! Hugs!

Beautiful and fun design. I am flabbergasted about the vibrancy of the colors of the DOX. No muddying and that is awesome sauce. The die cuts are colored beautifully as well and add the perfect touch to your wonderful canvas. Awesome sauce and fantabulous dearie! Hugz to you muffin!
