Today I am sharing a canvas panel frame using all the colors of Design Memory Craft's Texture Luxe™ in Pearl, Gold, Silver and Copper. I love the shimmer, texture and dimension that the Texture Luxe™ offers!
The first color I used was Texture Luxe™ Pearl. By adding water to it, I created a blending medium to use for my background. Not only did it blend but it gave a beautiful subtle pearly shimmer.
To add accent, I first used Texture Luxe™ Silver to stencil through Stencils 10 Ct 101 Collection Hexagon design onto the canvas. Let Dry. Repeat with Texture Luxe™ Gold. I love how both hold its shape ;)
Once dried, I cut "Celebrate" with my die and manual die cutting machine. Note: just in case, I used an anti-static powder to release the die cut easier.
To adhere "Celebrate," I applied Gel Medium on the back and adhere at the top of canvas. Let Dry. Apply photo corners to my 3 x 4" photo and adhere onto the panel. It's ready to display on your desk with an easel stand!
I hope my canvas panel frame inspires you to explore Design Memory Craft's Texture Luxe™ in your next project! We would love to see what you do - post a link under this post's comment section!
Until next time, thanks for stopping by!
