5" x 5" Canvas


I really enjoyed making this canvas!! I began with crumpled white tissue paper and glued it to the canvas (top and sides) with Golden fluid matte medium adding the medium under and over the tissue paper and let that dry. Next I painted it with Golden fluid acrylic black. After that was dry, white paint was added by scraping it on with a junk-mail plastic card and allowed to dry. Krylon gold paint pen was speckled onto the sides and along the bottom and right edge of the top using a blitzer. Glue the floral lace to the canvas wrapping it to the back. The die cut frame and collage image are both from PID. I cut the image and glued it to the back of the frame and then added it to the canvas. Butterfly charms and flowers were attached using Golden heavy gel medium.

Great background, Wanda. I love using tissue paper too. It gives such great texture and costs almost nothing!
