Bird Cage Canvas

Good Morning Crafters

How are you all today and have you managed to craft.

Today we have Samantha Wade's  sharing her canvas tutorial with you all.

Mixed Media is huge at the moment so I thought I would show you my take on creating a canvas.

Using a 12.5cm x 18cm canvas, add Gesso for a base coat.

The panel stencils from Imagination Crafts are perfect.

This one is Birds in a Cage and I have used used texture paste which gives it dimension

Added texture with scraps from your stash.
I have used lace, cheesecloth, chipboard and flowers glued on the a coat of Gesso over them all.

Added some glass glitters in the corners, texture paste to sides
then spray inks in shades of blue, green and brown to add a shimmer to finish.

 To finish, highlight the cage, chipboard and embellishments with gliding wax.

Isn't this fabulous! If you do have a go, please share on our Facebook Page so we can see.

Enjoy your day and thanks for visiting
