Color canvas with Metallic Grape Gelatos and blend with gesso.


Once the color dries, lay a stencil from the 102 Stencils Collection on the canvas and apply Whipped Spackle with palette knife.


Ruffle up some tissue paper and attach to the canvas with gel medium. Layer a die-cut doily on top.


Once the surfaces dry, add more colors with Iced Chai and Iced Coffee Gelatos. Color the die cut doily with Black Stamper's Big Brush pen. Layer a stencil from the 101 Stencil Collection on top of the doily and apply Whipped Spackle with a palette knife.


Ink up a background stamp with Stamper's Big Brush pen and stamp around the canvas.


Add some strips of old book paper near the top left part of the canvas.


Rub some Texture Luxe Gold and dilute some of it to so it will drip down. Let dry.


Attach a resin accent with gel medium. Rub more Texture Luxe Gold on it. Attach a phrase cut out of old book paper.

And there you have it! I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial.
