Altered Canvas Tutorial...

I created this Canvas using the January Mixed Media, Limited Edition Kit from My Creative Scrapbook and lots of goodies from my stash... Below I have pictured step by step photos of the background. The Flower, which is also in the MM kit has been colored by using a pink ink pad...easy peasy.

Please click on the images for a close up view...

Step 1-
I completely covered a 8"x 8" Canvas with Gesso . Let Dry.

Step 2-
I completely covered the canvas with the Crackle Paint included in the Mixed Media Kit. Let Dry

Step 3-
I cut a piece of the pattern included in the MM Kit and covered it with Mod Podge. Let Dry.

Step 4-
I used a small round sponge brush and dabbed white paint all over the canvas. Let Dry.

Step 5-
Using mask included in the MM Kit I added a little brown ink . Let Dry.

Step 6-
Dab a little more white paint. Let Dry.

Step 7-
I then added a thin layer of modeling paste over most of the  canvas. Let Dry.

Step 8-
I added a few Artisan Element Squares from an older kit and covered the entire canvas with Mod Podge.

Last Step....add lots of flowers and embellishments to decorate your canvas... I will have a video soon to show the way I altered the Dress Form from the LE Kit. Watch the Blog for Details.
