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!
