  • Instructions

    Step 1

    So this is where it all began..I had already gessoed and sprayed this canvas and set aside using AA Wild Orchid and Siesta Key sprays

    Step 2

    use a script and texture stamps in random areas all over canvas in black archival ink until you get the look you like. Let dry completely or heat set.

    Step 3

    In this step I spread a piece of cheesecloth out and used a matte gel medium to adhere. It then dryed overnight.

    Step 4

    I added a few drops of Minx in Majestic to texture paste and put through AA Bubbles stencil on the side along with a touch of green (covered later)lol

    Step 5

    In this step I used white mulberry flowers in several shapes and sizes gluedto gether to create imension. I also added some metal embellishments and then painted these all with white gesso. let dry.

    Step 6

    some more random stamping as well as hot glue runs and a molded piece painted with white gesso were added

    Step 7

    I stamped and cut the phrase for the focal point. I also fussy cut black cardstock to fit behind the phrase as a mat.

    Step 8

    Once you have added all embellies and gessoed its time to spray away!! I used Minx Majestic and then the other colors randomly along with spritzes of water and drying in between.
