Hi everyone, Val here today to share my canvas tutorial using the wonderful Fall Roses coloured in shades of purple and pinks.  This image really can be used for any seasons just by changing the colour scheme.  

I printed out Fall Roses and coloured them up I using 3 different pens to get the colours I wanted.

I started out by spritzing an 8 x 10 inch canvas with water and sprinkled Nuance Powders directly onto the canvas.  Nuance Powders are similar to Pixi and Brushos powders so you can use whatever you have on hand for this fun technique! Tip the canvas to make the water and powders combine and run down the canvas.

Then apply white gesso with a flat brush to paint the canvas and dry it with a heat tool.

Once the gesso is dry apply crackle paste to the canvas with a palate knife and heat dry with heat tool until you see the paste start to crackle.

I then made acorns and leaves with Hearty Soft air drying clay and molds and coloured them with Spectrum Noir Colourista pens.

Now the fun really begins, putting everything together!  I adhered the leaves and acorns and some real pine cones to the canvas with PVA glue and then sprinkled them with Tim Holtz Clear Rock Candy Glitter.

I fussy cut out the Fall Roses as well as some extra printed pieces from the design for layering to add dimension to the image.  I adhered the main image to the canvas with the Mod Podge.

The extra images were then adhered in place with 3D silicon glue.  I coated all the Fall Roses images with Mod Podge using with a flat brush and then sprinkled them with glitter to add some sparkle.

I stamped out the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto white cardstock and trimmed.  I then coat them with Mod Podge and added the glitter.  The sentiment was also adhered to the canvas with 3D silicon glue for extra dimension.

Your canvas is now ready to display on an easel or hang on the wall.
