For this project we'll be using a reversed canvas. I've given it a nice coat of gesso.
Now I use my Lattice Stencil to add dimension with some texture paste.
I thought about leaving this portion out of the tutorial. After all, I didn't use it in the end, but still a neat technique. AND it shows you can always change your mind on your projects!!
With watered down paint, i dabbed it on my stencil and pressed it down on the canvas. It comes out kind of like a messy stamped image.
I used the Mardi Gras paint for the technique too, and then went on to add color to the canvas frame.
Working my way around the canvas, I apply the paint, in a sloppy manner, before drying with my heat tool.
Even with my paint thinned with water, I sprayed more water on after it was dry, to give it an even more awesome washed out look.
With my distess colored ink pad, I rub around the edges of the canvas and in a few of the lighter areas....to kiss it with a nice aged look.
Now with some watered down Amber Gemstone Medium, I splatter some around. When dry, the Amber paint has a gorgeous shine to it.
Next I water down some more Lagoon Velvet and paint, and apply t to just a few spots, trying to stay in side the lattice texture.
Now I chose to glue a grungy patterned cardstock to inside of my canvas and douse it with more splatters of Amber paint. I love the golden look.
Now add your embellishments! I printed the lovely lady, & glued her to layers of chipboard and cardstock.
Coordinating flowers & metal pieces add a wonderful touch. Finish off w/ some micro beads for added interest!
