Canvas Layout Tutorial with Featured Designer Anna Wisniewska

Hello!
I’d like to share with you a toutorial that presents my favourite two ways of using Lindy’s Stamp Gang fabulous mists.
I decided to show Yoy the way that I make canvas ๐Ÿ™‚
All we need are:
The first step that we have to do is to prepare the background of our canvas. I put the thin coat of white gesso onto the whole surface of canvas. I use a sponge for it.
Then I dry it with the heater and I put the white acrylic medium through the mask. I chose the circle mask because it is perfect for boyish, a little messy projects ๐Ÿ™‚
ย And I dry it with the heater again ๐Ÿ™‚
ย I chose the mists that I’ll use ๐Ÿ™‚ I also prepare some water and a few paintbrushes.
I used to splash the mists with the paintbrushes. It is one of my favourite ways of using mists. So I splash the first mist – Mad Hatter Mint.
I spray a little water on it.
And I dry it:
I do the same with the second mist – Baby Blue Eyes Aqua.
Splashing mist with the paintbrush, spraying a little water on it and drying it.
ย And the same with the third – Edelweiss Moss Green.
And that’s our background ๐Ÿ™‚
Then I choose the embellishments – papers, stickers, tags, stamps, ribbons, laces, washi tapes, chipboards and so on…
I want my canvas to be three-dimensional so I stick the photo not to the canvas directly, but to the pieces of cardboard.
ย Then I make the composition.
The individual pieces of paper I stick behind the photo on different levels – that gives the three dimensions into my project ๐Ÿ™‚
And now I colour the chipboard – it is my second favourite way of using Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists ๐Ÿ™‚
ย I choose the mist,
and then I colour the chipboard – I use paintbrush for it.ย Mad Hatter Mint for smile,
ย and Baby Blue Eyes Aqua for the camera.
ย And then I stick the chipboards on the canvas.
And the last step – I add the embellishments – washi tapes, stickers, stamps, flairs, pieces of the ribbon, some white paint splashes.
And there is – ready canvas with the cute photo of my little son ๐Ÿ™‚
