Hope Canvas by Guest Designer Pam Bray

I hope you have enjoyed my guest design spots with Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. I have exciting news to share next month with you SO stay tuned!!!
I began my Hope Canvas by first deciding which fabulous piece of chipboard I was going to use.
Give each piece a coat of white gesso. Allow to dry completely.
Apply Tarnish Brass Distress Paint to top of each piece. Allow to dry completely.
Paint the pieces of Diamond Texture Sheets with  Bundled Sage, Forest Green and Peeled Paint Distress Paint. Paint the bird with Salty Ocean Distress Paint. Allow each layer dry completely before adding next layer.
Paint both canvas with Picked Raspberry Distress Paint. Allow to dry completely. Add a light coat of Spun Sugar to top. Allow to dry completely. Stamp image using black paint. Allow to dry completely.
Add white gesso to larger canvas using stencil and pallet knife. Allow to dry completely.
Place prepared pieces of Diamond Textured Sheet under and on top of canvas.
Spatter smaller canvas with black paint. Allow to dry completely. Adhere to top of larger canvas.
Add prepared Tulip Scroll Corner.
Add painted "Hope" from the Word & Phrase 2  to top of Bird in Ivy Wreath to finish your canvas. I "hope" you enjoyed my painted canvas. Make sure to check out all of Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts fabulous chipboard. 
Hugs, Pam
