I decorated a canvas board this week with a journey to PARIS.
Full on texture from me this week using Wendy Vecchi's white embossing paste accompanied with the Fleur de Lis and Eiffel Tower die cuts. I took myself off to the romantic city of PARIS this week, well in my creative head anyway, with lots of help from Mowed Lawn and Salty Ocean Distress Paints, with touches of Pitch Black Paint Dabber. I just need to stop dreaming now and move on!
I die cut the Eiffel Tower and Fleur de Lis from thick packaging and painted with black Paint Dabber.
Touches of brushed pewter and tarnished brass Distress Stain were added to the top.
At this stage I added all my elements to my canvas board. I used a couple of hearts from a previous project, hence the colour. Any colour at this stage does not really matter as we will be covering all the elements with Gesso. I added TRAVEL using Studio Calico alphabet wood veneers, PARIS cut from thick card using the word play die, heart veneers, bottle cap and some of my own metal finds.
Once everything is adhered, apply embossing paste around the canvas board using a palette knife.
Once the embossing paste is dry paint over the canvas with mowed lawn and salty ocean Distress Paints and when completely dry add black Paint Dabber to some of the areas, wiping away any excess with a baby wipe.
