Family Canvas

Hello everyone thanks for stopping by! Today i'm sharing a fun little canvas that I created with a little bit of recycling added in.  I love all of the new subway art things I have been seeing around.  I wanted a way to be able to make my own letters to stencil onto a canvas....so i'm going to show you how I did that today step by step.  Here is what the finished canvas will look like when you are done.
AA_Canvas step 10
I love my Sizzix dies and the packaging from them will make perfect stencils!!!  I grabbed my word play die and cut a few small pieces from one of the packages I had, ran it through my Vagabond and now I have my own letter stencils ready to use!
AA_Canvas step 1
Next I ran them through my Xyron 150 sticker maker using the repositionable cartridge, then laid them on the canvas.
AA_Canvas step 2
AA_Canvas step 3
I started the layers of color first using Art Anthology Metal Effects Gold Dimensional Medium.  I took a paint brush and added this color across the letters.  The next color I blended in was Art Anthology Metal Effects Bronze Dimensional Medium in the upper left and lower right corners.
AA_Canvas step 4
Now I wanted to add that pop of color.  I have to say I think this next color is one of my favorites!!  I added a little Art Anthology Terracotta Velvet Dimensional Paint across the letters as well.
AA_Canvas step 5
Now for the fun flower in the corner.  I created this using coffee filters.  You will need 2 coffee filters.
AA_Canvas step 6
Layer the 3 filters on top of each other and then fold into a triangle.
AA_Canvas step 7
Cut the top of them in a scallop shape.
AA_Canvas step 8
Spray them with the Art Anthology Colorations Spray, I used Sandcastle and then dry them with a heat tool.
AA_Canvas step 9
Once I was done with this, I took some Art Anthology Dimensional Crystal (Red Corvette) placed some on my craft mat, then dabbed the flower all over it and heat set it.  You can place a brad through the 3 filters and then "crunch & fluff" until you get the flower to look how you want it.  Once that was done it's time to place that flowers and some Petaloo flowers I had in my stash onto the canvas.  Before doing this I used Art Anthology Sorbert Dimensional Paint Black Leather Jacket and splattered it onto my canvas.  After placing my moss and flowers where I wanted them using my Xyron Liquid glue, I took a lid from the Colorations Sprays and made black circles all over the canvas as well.  Here is my finished project.
