Hi sweet followers,
With a sad feeling, I present you my last project as a DT member for Lindy’s Stamp Gang. With pride I have been a DT member, and I wanted my last project to really be a special one, and I have taken the time to finish it to perfection…
I created a mixed media canvas, with lots of layers gesso, inks, mixed media embellishments and I tried to capture sealife in it..
I’ve added a little note for everybody: find your happy. That’s really the most important thing in life…
I used many nautical themed embellishments, a bubble stencil, and clear art stones, to make it look like water bubbles…
When I had finished the background and glued all embellishments onto it, I covered everything with clear gesso.
When dry, I started spraying Starburst Tiffany Lou Blue, Yellow Rose of Texas and California Poppy Gold on the whole canvas, drying with a heat tool. It gives a magical effect in the textured layers.
And here is a little step by step so you can create a similar textured background…
Step 1: Prime your canvas with white gesso
Step 2: Add stencil pattern with white gesso
Step 3: Add fishnet with 3d matte gel
Step 4: Paint fishnet with white gesso and add your embellishments with 3d gel
Step 5: When everything is dry, cover the whole canvas with clear gesso
Step 6: Add color to your canvas by adding Starburst sprays Tiffany Lou Blue, Yellow Rose of Texas and California Poppy Gold.
And here is a full video tutorial for you, if you want to see all the steps in action…
