Create a mixed media canvas using the Foundations Media Paper that is part of the All The Good Things Collection. Included in the package are 12 sheets of 12" x 12" smooth white media paper that is 140lb. This paper is by Vicki Boutin for American Crafts.
I'm new to mixed media in my scrapbooking, and although I've done a bit of watercolor before, I don't have space to set up an easel to tape my watercolor paper to. Without that, I was having a heck of a time creating watercolor and mixed media backgrounds for my layouts. My pages were bumpy and distorted. This paper is helping! I don't find I need to prep it with gesso just to help it lay flat. I'm no mixed media expert, but I really like this paper.
This is very thick (140 lb) cardstock, very white, perfect for mixed media. It is not necessary to prep it with gesso before using mixed media on it- watercolor, mouse, pastes, art crayons- anything you prefer to use! It can handle it all.
I absolutely love everything about this paper. Foundations Media Paper is so durable, its the only paper I want to use. Its great for my mixed media, holds the integrity of paper. Additionally, I go heavy on embellishments so the weight of the paper can withstand the weight of the embellishments. BEST PAPER EVER
