Creepy Chalkboard Canvas - with Lisa


Happy Sunday, crafty people! It's Lisa with you and I'm sharing a creepy cool canvas with ya on the blog today using tons of Textural Accents on a base of Chalkboard Paint. Love the effect, don't you?


Here are the steps on how to make this:

1. Starting with a 5" x 7" canvas coat it completely with Chalkboard Paint on all sides. Two coats is usually sufficient. Allow to dry between coats.

2.  Place stencil from Stencil Pack 10 CT 101 Collection (Diamond Pattern) onto canvas.

3. Apply Gel Medium, Glaze, and Glass Bead Glitter Gel onto random areas of stencil using palette knife. (*tip - Let the Gel Medium and Glaze dry just slightly before proceeding to next step.)

4.  Carefully lift stencil. The Glaze will be much "looser" than the other two products and that is okay.


5.  Rub Gelatos® in Metallic Mint and Metallic Grape over the areas of the dried Gel Medium. Blend with dampened fingers or baby wipe (if desired). Add darker areas with Gelatos® Double Scoop® in Black Licorice for depth.

6.  To add a splatter effect dip a paintbrush into Gesso and flick onto canvas.

7. Place sticker words onto cardstock and rub Gelatos® colors in Margarita Mix and Metallic Grape around edges. Roughly cut out. Use Essential PITT Artist Pen to create interest around edges.

8. Place rub-on onto vellum and tear carefully around edges.


9. Create mask using a standard circle die or a circle punch and a sticky-note.  Using Gelatos® colors in Orange Soda and Banana blend to create a moon.

10.  With reverse of mask, place over the newly created moon and with Stamper's Big Brush Pen in White create wispy shadows around the moon. This pen is easily blendable with fingers.

11. Close-up of moon.

12. With a paintbrush, create a shiny surface for moon and word tags using Glaze.


13. Die cut a small bat, coat very lightly with Glass Bead Glitter Gel, place a small 3D Foam Square to the back and adhere to canvas. 


 The Chalkboard Paint and other Textural Accents all work so well together to create this really easy canvas. Don't let the steps fool ya! Have YOU used your Chalkboard Paint lately?
