Other Supplies

16" x 14" stretched canvases, Scrapbook papers, White tissue paper, Cling wrap, Pencil, scissors, Water basin, Paper towels, Foam plate

Instructions

  1. Paint the surface of the canvas in an abstract design using the sponge to gradually blend the colors into one another. You choose the color combinations.
  2. Before the paint dries, lay a large sheet of cling wrap onto the canvas surface. Wrinkles are good! Peel off the cling wrap and reposition on the surface again transferring the paint from the cling wrap to create a textured effect. Repeat as many times as you would like to achieve the desired effect. Let dry.
  3. Using the download sheet as a templet, cut the word "LOVE" and various circles from different scrapbook sheets. Sponge paint the edges using the transparent paints. Let dry.
  4. Tear the tissue paper large enough to go behind the letters. Glue two layers to the surface. Glue the letters on top of the tissue paper. Randomly glue bits of tissue paper and the paper circles on the canvas. Let dry.
  5. Sponge stencil the dot pattern in Permanent Mauve on the canvas.
  6. Sponge the edges of the canvas in Mauve to create a distressed look.
  7. Final step, lightly spray the canvas in the Black and White sprays.
