49 and Market ...Vintage Canvas

 Hello Lovelies!! This week I decided on creating a canvas. I mounted a piece of  Vintage Remnants paper onto the canvas using Mod Podge. I used some texture paste and a stencil on the background, and then covered the whole canvas with clear gesso. Once everything was in place I used a paintbrush and painted the Distress ink in various places around the canvas. I love to add a little vintage color to my pieces. Especially this this one, which is canvas textured with the paste and a stencil.

I mounted a dollar store plastic frame onto the background, and covered it with white gesso, then with texture paste. I placed some of the archival chipboard on the frame. I used texture paste on the archival chipboard, and after it was dry, I painted it with Art Alchemy Fairy Sparks paint.

 I also used pieces around the canvas borders. Then the magic began. I started to arrange the flowers around the picture frame. Once all of the flowers and the butterflies were in place. I added the gold flakes, glass beads and microbeads around the arrangement. To finish the whole piece, I added Wishing bubbles and pieces from the Embellishment Set scattered around the canvas.

Thank you for joining me. I hope you were inspired to create your own canvas using 49 and Market product.
