Fall meet Winter canvas

Hello !

Valerie here with something different from what I’m usually creating… it’s a canvas, to show you that you can paint with gel mediums as well as if it’s was acrylic, even if like me you’re not a painter !

After covering my canvas with white gesso, I started by applying grey (I used 50 shades but you can use Pewter) and Silver Metal Effect all over the canvas, then adding touches of red Desire Velvet with a small brush, using something water to dilute the color.

Then I added touches of Gold Metal Effect, Tango Velvet and Portobello Velvet to create different shades of leaves.

The trees are drawn with Tuxedo Velvet medium, with brushes of Onyx Shine. Few more brushes of Cotton Velvet to powder the landscape and I was done.

You should give it a try, it’s fun to create a canvas without pressure (we are not looking to create a masterpiece after all), and I have a little video tutorial to help you start with blank canvas by showing you how I did this one :

Thank you for your time, I hope this post will give give you some inspiration to create a canvas of your own.

See you soon with another project !

Halloween ATC

Hello there !

October is going so fast ! I’m way behind for my Halloween decorations but I managed to create something for the blog before being buried in spider web… Take a look at my Halloween ATC !

I started on white cardtock with Colorations sprays in Juicy and Timeless before playing with the Wheel stencil using a baby wipe and a purple pen.

After stamping some Halloween designs in black ink on the ATCs, I stamped the 31 frame on white cardstock and painted it with Fiji Velvet medium. I also cut small stripes of paper, painted them with the same color, and write on it for the sentiment.

I almost forgot ! I used one of the stencil of the Argyle stack with Fiji Velvet on these ATCs…

It is obvious that I was inspired by the October moodboard for this project…

Want to know more about my creative process ? Take a look at my video tutorial here or on the Art Anthology channel :

Thank you for your time and see you soon for another project !
