Love Story Mixed Media Canvas

Good Morning and Happy 2015!! I'm back today to share one of my latest projects using a mix of DecoArt paint, Core'dinations papers and my Sizzix eClips 2 along with a cutting file from LoriWhitlock.com


Love Story Canvas Supplies:

Step 1: Using eClips 2 and electronic cutting file, cut text from desired cardstock colors.

Step 2: Cut Core'dinations gray dot patterned paper to fit canvas.

Step 3: Brush canvas with Decou-Page medium. Attach patterned paper.
Step 4:  Adhere words to canvas using Decou-Page medium. If you desire a clean graphic look you can simply stop here; but for a little more fun, keep going! Brush over entire canvas with medium making sure all pieces are well soaked.


Step 5: Gently peel away damp paper around words and scrape away top layer of part of the letters. Let dry.

Step 6: Ink edges of canvas with gray chalk ink.

Step 7: Using stencil and white chalk paint stencil bubble images in open areas as desired. Let dry.
Step 8: Paint perimeter using gray chalk paint. Let dry.

Step 9: Embellish using hot-fix rhinestones.

And there you have it!

Winter Canvas

Hi All! Today I have a fun and easy canvas wall decor idea that will add sparkle to any home. The majority of my home is red, white and blue so I chose to use that color scheme along with a fun snowflake design and lots of sparkle using silver Glitter Silk cardstock and some glitter paint.




Winter Canvas Supplies:

Step 1: Paint canvas using Tuscan Red acrylic paint. Recoat as desired allowing to dry in between coats. Let dry completely.


Step 2: Paint canvas with a thin layer of Ice Crystal Glamour Dust glitter paint.

Step 3: Size split snowflake design to fit canvas. Cut-out from silver Glitter Silk cardstock using eClips 2 electronic cutter.


Step 4: Size name so that height fits within opening of snowflake. Cut-out from Navy ColorCore cardstock using eClips 2 electronic cutter.

Step 5: Apply Decou-page medium to back of snowflake pieces.

Step 6: Adhere snowflake pieces to canvas adding extra medium as needed.

Step 7: Brush entire canvas with Decou-page medium. Attach name; brush over image with additional medium. Let dry completely.

Step 8: Attach hot-fix rhinestones as desired.

And there you have it!
