I started with an 8x10 Canvas and added some lace and trim, I adhered the trim down with Modge Podge.
Then I coiled leftover trim and jute into a circle then adhered it with fabri-tac.
I started adding embellishments for texture. I used an old paint brush and wrapped it with wire. Placed my dragonfly die cut on top of paint brush. Adhered everything with fabri-tac.
I added some Art Stones for more texture.
Then I brushed everything including canvas with Acrylic White Gesso. Once everything is covered with Gesso I used my heat dry tool.
I added distress clear crackle in various places for more texture.
Once crackle was completely naturally dried I sprays Rustic Colorations then heat dried with my heating tool.
