Luciana's Canvas Tutorial

Hi my friends, Luciana with you again!
Today I want to show a tutorial using a canvas.

I like to use a canvas in my projects because it allows plenty of art! There are many possibilities!
For my tutorial, I was inspired by the colors of our palette! I love using green, pink and black!

4.April option 2

This was the result! Lets go?

Prepare your canvas with a layer of gesso.

On a piece of plastic or craft sheet, draw with texta/pen color, as shown in photo. Spray it with water to create an inky mixture.

Turn the canvas upside down on the inky water to create a smeared pattern and then dry with a heat gun.

Repeat with another color. Make as many colors as you want. You can use the pens of the brand Tombow I found them perfect for this purpose!

This was the result obtained with the colors I used.

Now apply a layer of modeling paste with your favorite stencil. I used this stencil with roses.

With the still wet modeling paste, apply the micro beads and press with your fingers to stick well.

 I love the effect of micro beads.

Start assembling the details, use a strong glue like a silicone based one. Start with a doily and another paper embellishment and pop them where you will place your picture.

Apply cheesecloth. I like the effect it has.

Stick your picture using some foam tape.

Let's decorate with flowers and embellishments.

To create effects, stamp some details on the canvas.

After stamping I thought it was dark, so I applied plaster again on the stamp to soften it.
