Love Canvas 2 by ~ Helena Johansson

Hi again! Do you remember the canvas I made last time? You can find the blog post HERE. Well, I loved making that canvas so much, I decided to make another one to go with the first. This will be the perfect present for someone!
I have also made a step-by-step tutorial on how I made this canvas, so that you easily can make your own.
Here's the second canvas. The first one had a touch of pink, this one has a touch of blue:

And here is the step-by-step:

Donna Salazar products used: Mix'd Media Stax 2 (script paper and crepe paper in small pieces), Love stencil, Embossing powder in colors Jasmine and Peridot.

Other products used: flowers, resin piece, cheesecloth, gesso and texture paste

Step 1: Paint the canvas using a sponge, just a thin layer.

Step 2: Arrange small pieces of paper from the Mix'd Media Stax 2 and a piece of cheesecloth on top.

Step 3: Paint with gesso to "glue" the pieces to the canvas. Don't paint all over, you want some of the script paper to show.

Step 4: Use the heart from the "Love" stencil with texture paste.

Step 5: Add some more gesso, using a sponge, but this time a thicker layer and only on a couple of spots. I have put some on top, bottom and the sides of the canvas. Then, before the paint dries, add some Embossing Powder, color Jasmine, where you used the gesso. Use a heat gun to dry. You will see that the texture paste will "rise" too, making the heart even more beautiful!

Here's a close-up of the fantastic texture:

Step 6: Arrange the resin piece and the flowers. Paint the flowers with gesso on the edges.

Step 7: Add some Emboss Gloss on about the same spots where you used the Jasmine powder, and then add some Peridot powder. Heat with heatgun.

Here's what my finished canvas looks like!

Now some close-ups of the finished canvas:

And of course I want to show you the two canvases together:

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you've enjoyed!
