ULD - Easter Canvas
Ivy back with you today to share this Easter canvas project using
for your custom laser engraved wood, chipboard and cork embellishments.
I'm beginning with a 3x3 mini canvas and I will be using mini Butterfly, Birds, Bunnies & Easter Eggs.
I applied gesso to all the pieces.
On the Easter Egg, I used Distress Paints, different color for each section then I set them aside to dry.
Distress inks used to cover half of the canvas with Salty Ocean (sky) and on the other half, I lightly blended in Spun Sugar.
Using a butterfly stencil, I applied Liquitex Matte Super Heavy Gel to the upper left corner of the canvas and set it aside to dry.
I painted the bunny with white acrylic paint and used my Copic Pens to color the bunny's ears, eye and the bird.
As I went on with my project, I decided to add the Butterfly embellishment.
I decided to use glossy accent to adhere the Micro Beads onto the Easter Egg, as well as the Butterfly below.
Below I used the white liquid applique for the bunny's tail.
Using a heat tool, I puffed out the the tail.
(be careful not to burn the liquid appliqué if you plan on using it)
Using Flower Soft, (pink and yellow) I created the foreground adhering it with the flower soft glue.
Added some pastel colored seeds that came out of a floral arrangement, some clear rhinestones held it all together with glossy accent.
I used the Distress Ink, Salty Ocean and lightly went over the stencil which made it pop out.
