Texture Canvas by ~ Helena Johansson

Hi there! Today I have a canvas to share with you. I haven't made that many canvases, so this is pretty new to me, but I had so much fun creating this!

Lots of texture, lots of paint and lots of love - and of course lots of Donna Salazar products:

Love canvas

I have used an 8x8 canvas and I started with painting it with white gesso. Then I laid  out some pieces of papers from GCD Studios and Donna's, a couple of pieces of doilies and some cheesecloth. I used Fast Finish Decoupage to glue all the pieces into Place. Then I used Want2Scraps and Donna's fabulous brick stencil with some texture paste. Amazing effect! I also glued small strips of paper (Heirloom A, Family Jeans collection) on the top and bottom of the canvas, just to give the canvas some framing.

I then glued Want2Scrap's and Donna's chipboard swirls on the sides, and then misted with Smooch Spritz, Sea Breeze, here and there until I was satisfied.

I then added some bling from Want2Scrap and Donna - a butterfly and swirls from Build your own Bling. I painted them with white gesso and then misted with Smooch Spritz a bit more.

Finally I cut the butterflies from the Heirloom paper, from the Family Jeans colletion, and glued them on my canvas, and added the title using GCD Studios and Donna's chipboard alpha. I also used Mix'd Media Inx, color Patina, on the edges of the canvas.
