Step By Step Tutorial of canvas art

Happy Wednesday!!
I thought I would take your through some steps on how I made my Canvas.
I have been loving making these little canvas's. Just remember you can add as little or as much as you want just have fun with it!!

 Here are the Mediums that I used for this Project these are all Design Memory Craft products.

 First step is to prep your canvas and I do this by painting a layer of Gesso on your canvas this is a 6x6. Than let dry or use a heat gun.  This process is going to let you spread the color around your canvas a little easier

Before I get started on my Canvas I am going to make some colors with my gelatos and set aside I am going to use this for some paint splatter and to color in my image.

For this next step I traced a stencil that I cut out with a pitt black pen. Than I just scribbled my gelatos right onto my canvas. I am going to spread the color around with a wet paint brush
For my image I colored it in with the gelatos and than I also did some shading with my Big brush markers. I than stamped my sentiment(Unity) in black Archival ink. I also want to note I dry my canvas after each step

To finish off my project I did a little stenciling. Splattered some color onto my canvas and than outlined the canvas with a big Brush maker around the edges and also made a frame with my Black Pitt pen.

I hope that this helped you a little I am no expert and really just learning as I go and having fun with it!!
