But before moving onto the tutorial …
let me show you the Canvas first.
Here it is…
Without further ado..
Here is the tutorial..( Picture heavy post ;))
I took 8 by 8 inches framed canvas, Mod podge , kitchen towel (coz I like its dotted pattern ) and a paint brush. I tore the tissue paper and glued it over the canvas as shown with the help of Mod podge and let it air dry.
Once the canvas was dried,
I applied a layer of Gesso over it to prepare the base for coloring.
After that I stenciled the canvas with texture paste using Craftyscrappers Rose Bunch Stencil and let it air dry. You can use your heat tool to fasten the process.
Then, I applied Gold Acrylic paint to add some interest .
Once satisfied with my coloring, I arranged all my embellishment roughly on the canvas as shown. I have used some chipboards (colored these with gold acrylic color) , flowers, Butterfly die cut outs ( which I heat embossed with white embossing powder), metal charm, glitter balls etc to decorate it. I glued all my embellishment over the canvas with glue gun.
Then I added the stamped sentiment… and if you are wondering what is this “Diddle” then let me tell you its my friend’s sister nick name for whom he asked me to make this canvas.
Lastly, I covered the whole canvas with mod podge and let it dry overnight.
Hope you like it.. Here are some close ups..
