Art Glitter Mother's Day Canvas

Vintage Chic Mother's Day Canvas

Heather decided she would like to share with you a Vintage Vintage Chic Inspired Mother's Day Canvas!! You will need the following:
  • Sweet Mommy image
  • Roses paper image
  • gesso
  • blue gelato
  • scissors
  • paint brushes
  • foam brushes
  • folk art brand paints:  Baby Pink, Lipstick Red, Vintage White, Old Ivy, Classic green, Fresh Foliage, Burnt Umber
  • 6 inch square canvas
  • anitque mod podge
  • Art Glitter Designer dries clear Glue 
  • Art Glitters: #208 Faunaand #165 Autumn
Step One
Heather used Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear glue to adhere her Rose paper to canvas, then applied some gesso.  Next Heather used more Designer glue to add her Sweet Mommy Image.  She ten applied antique mod podge and covered some of the rose paper with a blue gelato (and blended it in to the piece).  She also added some paint to the rose image and leaves.  She added some extra leaves and buds too.
Step Two
Heather painted rosebuds and leaves around her image as well as some brown comma strokes.  She finished painting the rose in the upper left and then covered the whole canvas with mod podge.  Once the mod podge was dry, she added a layer of watered down burnt umber, which you will see below.  She let it set for about 30 Seconds..then wiped it off to give the canvas a vintage look
Step Three
Once the burnt umber paint was dry, Heather used a diamond stencil and old brush to apply designer dries clear glue to different areas of her canvas.  You can see the diamond shaped areas pretty well in the lower left of the image below.  Fauna Glitter was added to the diamond shapes.  Heather used the same brush to more designer dries clear glue to the edges of her canvas, and she then applied Autumn glitter, which is one of her new favorites!!
Heather removed the excess glitter with a soft brush once her glue dried.  She is happy with the over all effect!
Heather hopes you enjoyed her tutorial, and hopes it adds a little Sparkle to your day!
