This is Ujjwal and today I am sharing a shabby chic canvas with you. It is my favorite time of the year and all I can see, hear and smell is Christmas these days.
I decided to make a layered Canvas and used the TCW stencils and lots of different TCW mediums too. I also documented the entire process and if you scroll down, you can see the photo tutorial to understand how the canvas developed from the beginning. The supplies used are also listed at the end of this post in case you want to check them out.
DISCLAIMER: THE CRAFTER’S WORKSHOP PROVIDED ME WITH SOME PRODUCT TO CREATE THIS PROJECT. THE OPINIONS I SHARE ARE SOLELY MY OWN.
And here’s how I made this canvas
The first step was to use the TCW9045 Matte Gel Medium and cover the whole canvas with some old book papers. Next, I gave the entire canvas a coat of TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Paint.
Next, I used the TCW807 Script Dots Stencil and some TCW9005 Modeling Paste and stenciled the pattern randomly on the canvas.
Once the modeling paste was dry, I used some Plain Jane Baseboard paint in yellow and TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Paint and TCW9015 Black Licorice Heavy Body Paint to add more color.
Once the background was dry, I started to lay out all the embellishments and came up with an arrangement that I liked. I used chipboards, laces, packaging boxes, cheesecloth, beads, etc to arrive at the arrangement.
And at last, I splattered some white paint and used the TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste to create snow around the edges and on random parts of the canvas. This medium is so perfect to create snow.
And, that’s all! This would make for such a wonderful home decor piece this holiday season and also make for a lovely gift!
I hope you found this tutorial useful and enjoyed looking at the project today. I will see you again next time.
