Hi there, today I am sharing a fun little tutorial on the Authentique Blog using the gorgeous Authentique Natural Collection. I created a 6 x 12 size canvas, which I had a ton of fun with. Here is what I did.
And now let me show you how I did it. First I took my 6 x 12 canvas and gessoed it and adhered my patterned paper to it. I gessoed the sides a little bit, as I was going for the shabby look.
For my project I used a lot of My Favorite Things products and the first step was to use their Rose Builder Stencil with Golden Light Molding paste. I added roses to both upper and lower corners. To speed up the drying process I used my heat gun and it worked perfect. I have no patience, when I have something in my head...LOL
this is what it looks like once it dries.
Next step was to "color" my flowers. I chose to work with Tsukineko's Memento and Versamagic inks. During this process I discovered how much I LOVE Versamagic. It covered my roses so beautifully as you can see.
Once I was happy with the colors of my flowers, I decided to add a little more interest, and this time I used Authentique's Hampton Arts Stamps. They made a perfect addition on my canvas as you can see.
Than as you could see on my finished project, I have a lot of flowers on this canvas. Well, the majority of them started out with flat. Once again I used quite a few flower dies from My Favorite Things and they were all cutout using the Natural collection papers.
I rolled up my flowers, added some color to them using the inks, just slightly, as I didn't want them to be loud. I also added some pretty Petaloo Textured flowers.
Here is a full look of the flowers and also added a Tim Holtz Metal Ornate Plate and put a sentiment in the middle of it. I added some gesso on the metal to age it a little. The Chicken Wire die is also by My Favorite Things.
