Aunt Canvas with Candy

Hi Everyone Candy here with my latest mixed media canvas.
This one is for an order for a friend
from her Granddaughter to her Aunt...
Just love this verse

I'm not just an
I'm a big cup of 
Covered in Awesome
with a splash of sassy
and a 
dash of crazy

I firstly applied white gesso to the canvas.
Then applied the modelling paste and the mask all over.
Let this dry
Apply your sprays I used coffee and turquoise around the canvas
I used a spray water bottle to dilute the colour
and don't forget to dry between colours or you will
make mud...
It took me a while until I was happy with the colours
just don't forget it will dry lighter.

I glued the plastic frame using a good strong glue
My canvas had a cut out piece where you place the photo
This is where I glued my frame.
If your frame is glossy give a rub down with sandpaper
to roughen so the gesso and sprays will take.

I covered my chipboard pieces with gesso
then using versamark then my embossing enamel
cover well.

Then place your flowers, chipbaord pieces, leaves etc where
you want them, then glue down.
I added some gold around my canvas just to give it a highlight.
I also went over my verse with a black permanent pen to make stand out.
