Metallic Canvas with Jen Matott

Hello everyone!! I have a little canvas project to share today.  I created this with a burlap covered canvas board.

 I added lots of fun Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents and miscellaneous pieces from my stash.   I wanted a gorgeous art decor with lots of circles and arrows.

 First I glued down some of the items using a liquid permenant adhesive. I started with a tag and a piece of our Mixed Media Stencils arrows that was cut and layered. I used UmWowStudio Doilies, Gear MASH, Chevron Confetti and Button MASH for this project too.

Once glued down, I covered the items with a layer of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso.  Once dry, I added some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Whipped Spackle through a stencil.

 When dry, I went to town with some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® Colors in the Metallic collection.

 Finally, I embellished with some glass beads mixed with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gel Medium and some bling and From The Heart flair!

As you can see the Gel Medium dries clear and the beads remain adhered well!  This is a really fun technique to add more texture and bling!


Here you can see the Metallic shine close up!


Lots of texture and shine to this project. I love how monochromatic it appears but has a lot to draw the eye around the canvas.





And finally, an inspirational quote:  To the artist, EVERYTHING is possible!
