'Spread your Wings' by Elisa Ablett

Hi Crafters!

Elisa here with my latest project for Scrap Matrix, a mixed media canvas featuring all sorts of goodies including 7 Dots, 13 Arts and Scrap Matrix metal and embellishments.

Here is a peek at a few of the products 

Here is my project - 

Let me show you how I created this canvas!

Step 1 - Gesso your canvas and let dry, glue down your Paper Lace - German Scraps and lightly gesso over the top

Step 2 - Using a 13 Arts Stencil and white modelling paste and palette knife, add some texture to your canvas over the top of your lace.

Step 3 - Wait until the modelling paste has dried and then glue down your 7 Dots studio - Dreamscapes die cut elements and chipboard

Step 4 - Add your colour to your canvas, I used a combination of 13 Arts Rainbow Colour in Brown and Yellow Amber, Ayeeda Water Inks, Ayeeda Chalk Mists and Ayeeda Splash Inks in Gold. I started adding colour from the inside of the canvas along with sprays of water and then tipped the canvas to create the drips, I like to dry my layers of colour inbetween. I also splattered Gold Ink in places over the colour.

Step 5 - Add Ayeeda 13 Arts Light Gold Mica Flakes with gel medium that drys clear and some more splats of gold.

Step 6 - Gesso your Scrap Matrix Metal with 13 Arts Primer. Then once dry add colour to your metal using the 13 Arts Rainbow Colour, Inks and paint. Making sure it is distressed by dabbing away some of your colour with a baby wipe

Step 7 - Glue your metal embellishments on the canvas and tie down your twine in a cross pattern. I also used glass dots to add more texture and flicked white 13 Arts ink onto the canvas.

Finish off your canvas by gluing down the last of your embellishments and adding your title over the top of the twine.

Here are some close ups of the finer details - 

That's it from me today! I hope you have enjoyed the tutorial step by step and my project.
