Handmade mini canvases with Gelatos


Hello everyone, Giovanna today with a fun and easy project with a bit of upcycling, my true passion. We're creating together two mini handmade canvases, you can use any cardstock box and jar lid, the possibilities are endless!

 Let's start:



To finish the project I glued some photos, taken during a beautiful weekend in Venice, but you can add some stamped images, magazine's cut or your favourite quotes and I added some dots with the Texture Gems.


Materials I used:

Texture Gems™ 3Pc Metallics

Gelatos® Colors 15ct: BRIGHTS: Red Cherry, Bubble Gum, Lemon, Mango, Lime, Snowcone, Boysenberry,Passion Fruit, Sponge Wedge

Mixed Media Stencil Tool Set Stencils 10ct 201 Collection





Giovanna Zara: I’m a crafter and designer from Sardinia, Italy. I started as a scrapbooker 8 years ago, and then I fell in love with MixedMedia: painting, mixing colours, materials and styles. I love to make Altered Art, Stamping, Art Journaling and I like to use recycled materials in my projects.
