I have used various stencils and stamps on this project and here is also a little step-by-step tutorial for you:
I first gessoed the canvas and then applied 4 tones of acrylic paint onto it.
Next I took the „Baubles“ 12×12 inch stencil and traced the pattern with a pencil onto a piece of white cardstock.
After that I fussy cut the image using a precision knife. I only used a piece that would fit the size of my canvas.
After that I misted the piece,
and then added some stamping.
I then added some black patterns for contrast onto the canvas background using the „Beaded curtain“ 12×12 stencil.
I also grabbed a piece of tissue paper and stamped some black butterflies onto it. I then used „Glue n´ Seal“ to adhere them to my canvas later.
I love in droplets, so I therefore had to add some also to this piece.
After the droplets were dry, I adhered the fussy cut stencil image piece over the canvas with „Glue n´ Seal“.
Next I took the „Texturized“ 12×12 inch stencil and applied some texture paste over the canvas mainly to the upper right corner.
I then took some flower ribbon and cut suitable pieces out of it and adhered those over the texture pasted area.
After the glue and paste had dried, I went and sprayed some yellow and pink spray ink over the paste and the ribbon.
White the spray ink was drying, I took the piece fo white cardstock which I had used previously for the fussy cut stenciled image and stamped an image with black ink onto it. I then went along and used a butterfly die cut for cutting and
then misted it with blue spray ink.
I then glued it over the flowers with „Glue n´ Seal“ and adhered a light bulb over it. The light bulb I treated with some gesso and glitter glue for additional interest and to alter it abit. After that I just hand drew a sentence on white paper, spray inked the words and glued them on their places. This is what my finished canvas looks like:
I hope you have enjoyed this little step-by-step!
