On Sunday I was live on Periscope doing some Gelli printing on some deli paper and I loved the way this one turned out with the flowers. It was so pretty so I decided to use it to make a small canvas.
I used the Helmar Decoupage and Craft Paste and spread it over the canvas panel with the paint and glue spreader. Then placed my deli paper print over the top and used the paint and glue spreader to get any air bubbles and lumps out.
I painted some music paper with some Gesso then painted the background with some Decoart paints using the paint and glue spreader. Then I stamped the Tim Holtz butterfly stamp on top of that. I put that on top of some canvas material using some Helmar Tacky Craft Glue waited for that to dry and then sewed it on the side with black cotton on my sewing machine.
I threaded some twine through the wooden letter banners. Then tied some bows through 2 buttons to hold my banner at the sides. I used the Helmar Scrap Dots on the back of the buttons, as it was over the top of the twine so with the dimension this worked great.
Using Helmar Tacky Craft Glue I placed my sewed butterfly panel on top of my canvas.
Any time I do a canvas I always finish it off with 2 coats of Helmar Krystal Kote Matte Varnish
this protects it from dust and fading and keeps it from yellowing.
Have a great day
