Believe in Yourself Cardboard Canvas
Today I am sharing a project I made with the April mixed media kit featuring a gel press printing plate and Dina Wakley gloss sprays.
I decided to used a piece of cardboard the size of the gel plate that I painted with couple of coats of the Deco Art white gloss acrylic paint. Once dry, I began adding the different mists, giving each color a minute or so to dry, used the brayer, added some stenciling with the white paint, and let that dry as well before transfering the design to the cardboard:
The colors were a little more brighter than I wanted them to be, so I took some of the white paint and painted over the design with a fan brush.
Next I added the Tres Jolie leaf design chipboard available in the Tres Jolie store. I painted it white then used the green gloss spray with a paint brush to give it a mottled look that would blend into the design on the cardboard.
I also treated the Tres Jolie butterfly the same as the leaf chipboard border except I used the orange spray.
I painted edges of the chalkboard frame from the scrapbook kit with the white gloss paint, removed the clothes pin attached to the back and glued it the middle of the cardboard, added the butterfly, and a title that I cut up that came from the laser cut outs from the scrapbook kit.
