I started by painting the canvas with gesso and adding 2 pieces of lace. Glue chipboard clock, cogs, flowers and other interesting elements on top of this and then paint everything white using gesso.
Next add a little Greased Lightnin’ Green, Caribbean Blue and Luscious Lime to the center of the clock and dry with embossing gun. At this point, the layers of color will really begin to start looking amazing. The interesting patterns that you get from adding multiple layers are amazing!
Time to start darkening it up – add Frolic in the Forest black to the canvas edges, take the black right up to the edges of the clock embellishment, dry with an embossing gun. You will need to add several layers of the black, drying between each one to get the depth of color I have on my canvas. I’ve also added a little Frolic in the Forest black and Sidewalk Chalk white over the embellishments using a brush.
For the final POP of intense color, add Magicals powder direct to the center of the canvas – just sprinkle it on with a paintbrush over the clock and embellishments and then spritz with water to activate. Finish the canvas by adding some gold wax paste to highlight the texture. You won’t believe the difference this final step makes!
