Supply list: Patterned paper: Prima; Cardstock: American Craft; Chipboard Frame: Blue Fern Studios; Resin Embellishments: Prima; micro beads: American Craft; Mist: Prima Color Bloom Spray; Texture paste: Studio 490; Gesso: Claudine Helmuth; Gel Medium: Finnabair; Embossing powder: Lindy's Stamp Gang; Stencil: Prima; Other: Shells from my stash, 12x12 canvas.
Just a glimpse into my process:
Step 2: Spray some Prima Color Bloom Sprays onto the frame and let dry.
Step 4: Melt the embossing powder with a heat gun.
Step 5: I dry brushed some gesso around the edges of the frame.
During the drying process of the frame I started preparing my canvas:
I stuck down some chipboard bricks, then I covered it with a thin layer of clear gesso.
I used the lovely "under the sea" template by Prima and applied texture paste mixed with some acrylic paint through the template...then I set it aside to dry.
I then misted some Color Bloom spray liberally and let it the canvas dry.
When the frame as well as the canvas was dry...I attached the frame and started embellishing around my photo with micro beads, resin embellishments and shells....I love how shiny it all looks.
