Hello my wonderful friends, and happy Friday!
For those of you who follow the Unity blog (and if you don't, you should!), you saw a canvas tutorial I posted on Wednesday...
I had so much fun with it, I decided to do another canvas with a totally different look....
This time, I took pictures as I went instead of trying to recreate... SO much easier! LOL!
Step 1: randomly stamp background and images onto white tissue paper with a waterproof ink like Archival Ink.
Step 2: tear up the tissue paper and use mod podge to randomly glue on canvas.
Step 3: mod podge on some random strips of lace.
Step 4: mod podge on some die cut book paper.
Step 5: cover the entire thing with a thin layer of gesso.
Step 6: spray on some colors, focusing around the edges. tip the canvas to allow drips.
Step 7: use random lids, cups, etc dipped in black acrylic paint and "stamp" circles.
Step 8: paint in the circles with some gesso (that will hide the background color)
Step 9: paint in the circles... I used watercolors
Step 10: stamp large word onto tissue paper with waterproof ink. (this allows for a good impression despite the texture)
Step 11: mod podge the word on... the magic of tissue paper is it becomes translucent and practically disappears with the glue.
Step 12: smear some Rock Candy Crackle Paint to the corners and edges. allow to dry... this may take time, but let it do it's thing without a heat gun.
Step 13: finish off with a little ink around the edges to highlight the cracks
