Hi everyone, Mou here from mousaha.com with a canvas project using Gelatos® color of the week Raspberry! As we get closer to Thanksgiving, gratitude is on our minds. We are also thinking of getting our homes ready for the holidays, to entertain our family and friends. I wanted to create a piece that spoke to both: a word to ponder over and a handmade home decor project. Follow along to see how you can make it too.
Supplies you'll need:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® color:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush Pen: Black
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Essential PITT Artist Pens BLACK
Others: 7" x 9" canvas, stamp, diecuts, found papers, washi tape, moist baby wipe, scissors
Start by applying a coat of gesso to the canvas. I used one measuring 7" x 9". You could choose any size you like.
Rub some Raspberry Gelatos in the middle of the canvas.
Blend with a lot of water. Let dry thoroughly.
Ink any background stamp with Black Stamper's Big Brush pen and stamp around the canvas.
Using Gel Medium, layer found papers, tapes and die cuts on the canvas.
Layer the tribal patterned stencil from 102 Stencil Collection near the right edge of the canvas and apply Whipped Spackle with palette knife from the Gelatos Tool Kit. Lift off the stencil immediately and clean it with a moist baby wipe.
While the medium dries thoroughly, die-cut and emboss the leaf and color it with Tangerine Gelatos. Rub more Raspberry Gelatos over the embossed stem and veins.
With your B tip Black PITT Artist Pen, write 'Gratitude' on a piece of paper and cut it into a small banner with scissors.
Attach the little banner and leaf to the canvas to finish.
I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial. Before I go, I want to say to you that I AM SO VERY GRATEFUL TO YOU ALL! Thanks for checking out my tutorials, visiting my personal blog and leaving sweet comments and your questions. Thank you!
