Hi =) Today I have a tutorial for you. Hope you want to join in and follow all my pictures... It´s several of them =). First a photo of the finnished canvas...
It´s a bit of winter as well as of christmas.
My camvas is 6x6 canvas... so it´s quite a small one. I first start to measure on my canvas and mark with a pen so the square is in the middle. Then I cut out the square in the canvas with a scalpel. After that is done I put a layer og gesso on it and dry it.
Then it´s time to do some more measuring on the back of the canvas. I measure how wide and deep the hole on the back is, so I can make a small box. On my canvas it was 3 inch wide and 1 inch deep.
Then I cut out a square that is 5 inch. mark 1 inch from each side and cut in like it shows in the picture. Now it´s time to glue the box.
The other side of the paper is dark blue and that is the color I want to be shown in front so I fold my box and glue the ends, so I get I box like the one below....
Now i glue the angel and some flowers and leaves in the box.. like this =)
Time to go back to the canvas...
I spray some Lindys mist allover the canvas and use my heater to dry it.
Then I take a stencil and modelling paste on it... and use my heater again ;)
When it has dried I take my needle and some blue thread and sew around the hole to frame it.
Now I put my little box i the hole and use tape to put it in place. I only had masking tape at home, but I will change that to a better tape that is more sticky. So if you feel you want to try this tutorial... use a better tape ;)
Now it´s time to decorate the front of the canvas. For that I use a piece of chipboard on which I put a coat of white gesso on. Then i put some clear gesso on the birds and leaves...
Here the clear gesso works as a glue for the micro beads. When I have put the micro beads on I use anoteher thin coat of clear gesso on them.
I don´t want the branch to be white so I put a coat of Inklings on it.
When this is done... I can glue down all my embellishments.
The last touches are made with gold paint... some splashes here and there.
Thanks for taking your time!
