Be Happy Mini Canvas with Video

FABULOUS mini canvas Lisa!!!
THANK YOU for sharing your video tutorial, it was fun learning more about Gesso, Gel Medium, Whipped Spackle and the Glass Bead Glitter Gel => I feel the need to play with them ALL :)
PS - great idea with the offset layer under your "Happy"!!!


What a fabulous project to showcase the wonderful things you can do with Faber Castell Whipped Spackle, Glass Bead Glitter Gel (I really love those shiny beads) and the very versatile Gel Medium and colorful Gelatos! Thanks for the video post it was great! I'm one of your die-hard fans. You Rock!

I have so much fun watching this video. And it was great learning about new things to me. Hope to see more videos from you.


What a fun little canvas. I must say though that I had a hard time hearing your voice. Is there any way you can adjust that? I tried on my end but it doesn't work. Thanks for sharing a sweet project with us.
