Step 1: Grab all your supplies. In addition to the American Crafts supplies listed above, you’ll need a canvas, gesso, and water based varnish-glue.
Step 2: Prime your canvas using the gesso. Use an old credit card to apply it. Don’t try to get it smooth; an uneven look adds a lot of interest. Leave it to dry for at least a couple of hours and even a day if you are patient!
Step 3: Choose different 6×6 papers and cut out the shape using a Silhouette. You could use dies and a die cutting machine and mix shapes if you don’t have a Silhouette.
Step 4: Start assembling the different pieces. Glue them down using the varnish-glue. Add one or two layers of varnish over the top once you have finished adhering all the cut outs – this will protect the canvas and gives it a nice shine. For extra detail add some black India ink splatters.
Step 5: Add a quote. I used two different types of Thickers and also cut out part of the saying with my Cameo.
