Prima Mixed Media Doll- Angel Ruby Canvas

I named this Canvas Angel Ruby in honor of my aunt, who passed away six years ago. I will hang it on the wall so she can watch over my mom. So now Aunt Ruby, our angel, will be remembered when we look at the canvas. 

This project was very fun and the meaning behind  it made me happy when I created it.  There are so many new and trendy products to create with at  Flamingo Scraps that it's sure to get the creative mojo flowing. The Prima Dolls are the rage right now, along with Tim Holtz Distress Paints.  I LOVE this paint and wish I had gallons of it. I can't say enough about it. It's unlike any paint I've used because it blends so well and is easy to work with.I stamped this girl in black and used clear embossing powder. I wanted her to have patent leather shoes. I  did the same to the rest of the doll so I could get a good outline of her to fussy cut. I  added a few techniques under the pictures of how I achieved the different elements on this canvas.

Background:  I used a Multi Medium Gel and a stencil. After that dried, I finger painted  the Tim Holtz Distress Paint on, then sprayed with water. You can find the whole set here. Tim Holtz Distress Paints Set I used the
Fired Brick, Antique Linen, Picket Fence, Black Soot for the background.
I also used some recycled packaging on the back of the girl.
I created it by embossing it and then painted the back With Distressed Paint Picket Fence. Let it dry then painted the front with Distressed Paint Black Soot. I  used a heat gun to melt the words and dry the paint. I used a sanding block and roughed it up so you could see the white behind it.
