Sweet Like Candy Canvas

Hi Gang!  Anat here on the blog today and I’m so happy to share with you a canvas I made with my daughter’s photo.

I decided to go for a colorful palette as she is a kid and I wanted a bright and joyful result.

Basic Process

So  join me in the Step by Step process:

All products are set so let’s Start
First step was coloring in the areas of the canvas where the photo and embellishments will sit. I used five gorgeous sprays: Rizzo’s Rowdy Red Flat, Grab a Guy Gold Shimmer, Jack in the Pulpit Teal Shimmer, Time Travel Teal Shimmer and Cowabunga Copper Shimmer.
Next, I stamped with archival black and color inks.

My favorite technique to color paper die-cuts is embossing. As you can see, I used a few Embossing Powders: Desert Moon Turquoise EP, Midnight Teal EP, Midnight Pewter EP, Caesar’s Gold EP and Cuckoo Clock Cardinal EP.
I needed a few more embellishments stamped and hot embossed, this time I used Cuckoo Clock Cardinal EP and Sassy Sapphire EP.
I added thin chipboard circles and left them with their natural color.
As I can’t do without some texture I added it with modeling paste through a stencil.

Time to put everything together with gel medium. As the picture matting, I’ve chosen some papers and a couple of matching tags. As you can see when I’ve got to this point I decided to change the canvas direction.

And this is what I came with! I love the result and I hope you do too!

So give it a go – it’s easier than you think!

Here are some extra photos so you can see all the details.
