I started with a 7"x14" canvas and painted a thin coat of Acrylic Gesso on the entire canvas.
Once Gesso dried, I spread Clear Crackle randomly on the canvas. Then I used Art Anthology's Mud in a few places using a stencil.
While the canvas is drying I went ahead and painted 2 coats of Acrylic Gesso to Melissa Frances Applique and let dry. Once the Gesso dried, I applied a generous amount of Clear Crackle on.
While I was waiting for Clear Crackle to dry, I painted a coat of Gesso on the embellishments.
Here's a picture of the embellishments with a coat of Acrylic Gesso.
Once Clear Crackle dried on the Applique, I sprayed Art Anthology's Peacock Feathers Coloration spray all over.
Once Peacock Feathers Coloration dried I used a paint brush to apply French Toast Coloration spray to the Applique.
Once everything was dry, I started to place embellishments on the canvas. I used Gel Medium to glue the metal embellishments down and Fabri-tac to glue flowers down.
I sprayed most of the background with Art Anthology's Peacock Feather Coloration spray.
Next I sprayed some of the roses with Art Anthology's Timeless Coloration spray.
Once the Timeless Coloration ink dried I used Art Anthology's Enchanting Minx on some of the flowers and roses.
I used French Toast Colorations spray in random places. In between colors I used my drying tool. Then I went in and used Art Anthology's Sunshine Sorbet Dimensional Paint to lighten up a few places.
I took I also used Art Anthology's Cotton Candy Velvet Dimension paint to lighten some areas where I used Enchanting Minx.
Once everything is dry, I mixed microbeads and seedbeads with Gel Medium and randomly spread the beads on some of the embellishments.
Here is a close up of the beads!
