Vintage Romance Mixed Media Canvas Tutorial

Image
Recently I taught this workshop in a beautiful store called Bella Paperie at Brendale, Queensland I thought I would post the tutorial here for others to share! May your creativity be inspired and blessed! Step 1. Using stencils and modelling paste, add your texture to canvas. When dry paint over in a dark colour, I have used burnt Umber. Rub a little Vaseline over the edges and texture, basecoat over the entire canvas with your background colour. I have used #decoartAmericana D├ęcor Chalky Finish in the colour "Lace"   Step 2. Adhere your collage papers to the canvas, I used Decoart Decou-Paige matte sealer.Apply a little Gesso over canvas to tone down the colours of papers.   Step 3. Place your stencil into position. This stencil is my own design and can be purchased by contacting me directly.     Step 4. Add a little green paint in amongst you roses and leaves using a small sponge.   Step 5. Use some acrylic or ink spray into the back
