Unlock- Mixed Media Canvas for Colour Arte

Hello Everyone,

Colour Arte has new Design Team call for September - March session and I would like to be part of this wonderful company and design team again. So I've created this canvas and post specially for reapplication.

I created mixed media canvas - 'Unlock'

I had a blast yesterday playing with many yummy Colour Arte  products.

Other Products:
Gina Designs - Grape wines
Prima Finnabair Modelling paste
Prima stencil Netting
Tim Holtz stencil Damask
Prima Resin collection- Door
Handmade flowers

Let's see step by step process..

I started with 8*10" canvas gave it first base coat of Gesso. I created texture on it with stencils,
Colour Arte Radiant Gels Green Perls and Modelling paste. I also adhered buttons and trinkets for more interest.

 here started a fun part! I used Colour Arte shimmering mists in various colors for first layer, dried it completely with my Heat Tool. Next I applied Colour Arte Radiant Gels Spiced Pumpkin, Guatemalan Green and Emperor's Gold (my favourite) for more color and texture. I created the layers till I was satisfied.

To color the Resin door I've used Color Arte Radiant Rains- Nutmeg, Butternut and Teal Zircon (fabulous blue)

I colored Chipboard Grape wines with Colour Arte Spiced Pumpkin, Radiant Rains Nutmeg,  Persimmon.

and when I arranged all this on canvas canvas was ready...

Here are the close up pictures of canvas

Hope you enjoyed my making process tutorial.Thanks so much for stopping by.
