Let Your Love Show Mini Canvas

Let your love show with this easy to make mixed media mini canvas that can be placed anywhere to decorate a wall space, a bookshelf or a desk.

Place the stencil on the stretched canvas and with a sponge dauber colour with Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink pad covering about the central half of the canvas surface.

Distress the rest of the white areas with the Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad.

Using a palette knife spread modelling paste on a cross way to the opposite stenciled surface making texture strokes by lifting the palette knife up and down on the paste.

Sprinkle spots of the wet paste with red and silver embossing powder and heat set.

Wrap jewellery wire around the canvas aiming for the centre and secure at the back by twisting the two wire ends together.

Press the metallic heart and metal silver tone key onto the StazOn Blazing Red ink pad, allow few seconds to dry and repeat.

Use a sponge dauber to colour the gears with StazOn Jet black, decreasing the shine and reflection of the silver tone surface of them.

Cut a small piece of the May Arts chevron ribbon and glue it on the middle centre of the canvas.

Continue by adding the gears, then the heart and the rest of the details using the Viva Decor Jewellery Glue.
