For this canvas I used pieces from the Fanciful Elements Set and the Window with Shutters. I simply coated the window with white gesso. I gave it two coats to give it a fairly solid white color. The Fanciful Elements pieces with through quite a process to get to where they are now. First I coated them with the Prima rust paste set to give them a rusty look. I didn't like how this looked as it was too rustic for this piece. I added a couple colors of embossing powder to add shine and different texture. This looked closer to what I had in mind, but wasn't quite there yet. I then added 3 different colors of brown sprays, two of which were shimmer sprays. This gave me the look I was after. The chipboard held up amazingly which all of the products on it.
I used these same brown sprays to color my canvas as well. The blank canvas started with a layer of tissue paper held on with clear gesso, then some paper texture paste, then the brown sprays, and then modeling paste through a stencil.
I assembled all of the layers using heavy body gel medium and then added art stones and glitter using soft matte gel. I completed the canvas by using gold wax on the sides and top edges. I also dry brushed all of the elements including the chipboard with white gesso.
I used the following products from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts on this project:
