Shabby Chic Canvas

Hello and welcome! It's Graciellie posting today.This month Sin City Stamps has partnered with Gelli Arts! What a great combination of products! I've had a great time creating personalized backgrounds with Gelli Arts' Gel Plate, and adding details with SCS stamps. It's almost therapeutic the way the projects come together, and how we have no precise control of the resulting background using the Gel Plate (a truly spontaneous artistic process).

Today I want to show you a 6"x 6"
pink, gold, and silver canvas I made.
 


Main Supplies
Sin City Stamps:
Butterfly Mask
Chicken Wire with Butterflies Mask
Love of Butterflies Plate of Rubber
Gelli Arts 5"x 7" Gel Plate
Cotton Wood Arts 6"x 6" canvas (to be released)
Other
Crackle Embossing Paste
Palette knife
Brush
Baby wipes
Paints: Poster paint in pink and metallic acrylic paints in gold and silver
Embellishments: 2" lace, 3/8" gross grain ribbon, gold vintage buttons, Fused string pearl beads, pearls, crystals
Adhesives: Uhu all purpose adhesive, Bazic two sided tape

I layered many butterflies that I stamped, heat embossed in gold and fuzzy cut to create a 3D effect. The background was created with Gelli Arts Gel Plate. I also stenciled the canvas with crackle embossing paste, which added to the shabby chic design.

I prepared a step by step tutorial for you. Start the guide below to check it out!
