TCR #55 n Canvas Tutorial


Finally, all things are in place. Done with d kids bedroom n my lil space. Now back to my scrapping table!! hopefully i'm able to create. Anyway i promise to share a tutorial on my canvas. So i managed to complete it last week. The colours is base on TCR#55.

First i prep my canvas with gesso. I'm sure many of u knows about this step but what i wanted to share is instead of using brush i opt for a spatula, that way i can control the amount of gesso n the thickness of the medium. It's easier to clean the tools too!


Next i die cut a mounting board. Stick it to my dry canvas with medium gel. I added lace on the lower half of the page n texture paste randomly on the borders. Leave to dry.



Since i'm playing with tcr, i blend my acrylic paint with small amount of water in a mister. That's my way of painting my canvas. I prefer to mists my colours directly on my canvas. I sprayed to my heart content! lol. I tried not to mix the colours with each other otherwise i will not get the exact colour of the tcr palette.


Once the colour dries i proceed to stamp n embellish on my canvas. So..there u have it. The whole process is quite simple except that i have to wait for the texture paste to dry which in my case took more than 3 hours!


Leave me a link if you have a canvas to share. I would love to see..Thanks for dropping by..:)
