Vintage reverse canvas

Hello Everybody,

Today’s project has been inspired by Louise’s reverse canvas from Telford. I couldn’t make a canvas but I loved it so here is my take on it.


I have used beautiful papers from 13arts collection- summer raphsody.

I used wooden square and after a coat of white gesso I decided to use the back of it with two windows…

I filled the two windows with papers. I added texture to frame by dubbing texture paste on to it with a back of my pallet knife .

When dry, added some colour using a powder from fabrika decoru
I also use 13art stencil to add some texture to my windows panels.

I used handcasted resins from prima moulds and coloured them with gold metallic paint from Fabrika decoru. I also used mdf frames from the same company and covered them with white gesso.


I started building my composition in the middle. I used some cardboard to balance resins and mdf to create an even surface.


I stained the edges of my papers elements with distress oxide, and also distress the frame with the same vintage photo oxides ..


I added some gauze, sisal and lace to my composition, finally I splatter the project with white gesso and added a sentiment.

Hope you like my project …
I do love mixing all materials and enjoying creating something unique. The best things is I can get all those product in one shop.
Have a great week and keep crafting…

Mini Vintage Canvas

Hi everybody,
It is Kasia here with another project. This month I am using many beautiful products from Louise’s shop.
This is my mini vintage canvas…
Here are steps:
1. I was going to use Maremi’s stencil on my background but…
2. Firstly I decided to add some texture using gauze on the background, I adhered it using white gesso.
3. When dried, I stamped randomly finnabair stamp and used stencil on top.

You will need texture paste to do.
4. I decided to use a mdf  butterfly from Fabrika Decoru, you need to add a layer of white gesso

5.i added some two types of lace ; I used gel medium to adhere all my embellishments

6. I lifted up gessoed butterfly but using a piece of cardboard.

7. Started building my layers, usingd tags from AB studio paper pad- behind closed door

8.added some paper and metals cogs
 
9. Finally I added a colour, I used antique gold paint from Fabrika Decoru, the green shade appeared by itself, I didn’t expect that but I liked it.
After I added some shading around embellishments using a black spray with a brush.
White splatters to finish it off… and sentiment of course..

Hope you like it as much as me…See you soon with another project,
Kasia x
