I've been really crazy playing with mist, paints and inks for the past couple of months. So, I decided to share with you what I did on this canvas display piece. Canvas is one of the most versatile materials which you can do almost anything on it. Inks and paints work amazingly well on canvas and you could add in embellishments to make out a good piece of display for your home or as a gift to someone.
For the canvas I created, I used a 8" x 8" size, applied paint over the whole canvas surface. You could mix a few colors for a better effect.
Next, I laid over a plastic mesh and sprayed mist over it to create a nice checks effect. You could even splatter the background with paints or spray mist over die cut or alphabets negative for a unique pattern.
This is how it looks after I removed the mesh. Let it dry completely before you start working on it.
Lastly, I inked the edges for a distressed look and started embellishing my canvas. You can use almost any kind of embellishments on the canvas surface. Just use clear tape, glue dots or liquid glue to adhere everything onto the canvas.
Here is the finished piece of my canvas display piece with pictures of my hubby and I. This piece would be displayed on the wall next to my other existing pieces. I just love looking at them while I work in my scrap room. It gives me a sense of happiness to see all them up on the wall.
I hope you'll enjoy creating canvas pieces with paints, mists and inks as much as I do. Have a great weekend and thank you so much for coming by again. :)
