Sparkle with Prima - Lulupu Blog Hop

Hello and Warm Welcome for your first stop at my blog for Lulupu Blog Hop - 2014

I am very excited to get you rolling along with my Mixed Media Canvas and step by step tutorial for that.
(Picture Heavy Post)

I've used many newest Prima products for this.

It is 14*12 " Canvas. I started with attaching various torn pieces of Prima Epiphany papers.It has some gorgeous designs  with text and bird cages and butterflies. I used Art Basics Soft Gloss Gel as a glue.

 I applied Art Basics Modelling paste through Prima bubble stencil. It gives perfect texture. And it takes the colors properly.

Next , I stamped with various Prima and Kaisercraft texture stamps and Ranger jet black Archival Ink. On that  I applied Clear Gesso at some areas and white gesso at some. I wanted some designs to see through.
This is the first time I am using clear gesso and am very happy with the results.

Here, you will see, I started adding embellishments. Shadow box is Prima packaging box(I gessoed it ). Other embellishments are
Prima Ehipany flowers
Epiphany laser cut wood icons
Prima resin butterflies
Forever Green laser cut wood icons
Prima typo Zipper pulls

I gessoed them all.

I started to apply colors with my various spray inks in yellow, orange and red colors.

I dried it with heat tool.

I've created crackle effect with Prima Gold crackle paste. I applied it through bubble stencil, woow it is just amazing!!

And here is final look of my canvas!!

Let's see some closeups..

 Backside of box, I've attached gauze, which gave lovely texture. Prima embellishments are easy and lovely to add beauty to your creation.
I applied Luminous Art Glitter on the embellishments. They look fab in real, camera couldn't capture it
I also added sequin 

I created this flower with modeling paste and Prima stencil.

I found these lovely sequin in Epiphany Ephemera. You will see all the layers here.

Embellishments are also having so many layers of white/black gesso, spray inks and acrylic paints.


It is a box canvas, so I've created all texture and colors on the all sides.

Hope you liked the tutorial and my canvas.
