Artful Days August Kit Hello Sunshine Mixed Media Canvas

Hi all

I am back from my week holiday to Great Yarmouth which went way too fast but you know what they say when you are having fun. The weather was warm and sunny until the last day so its been a fab break and now i need to work off all that ice cream. Anyway I bought my first Artful Days Theme box last month but i have only just found time to sit down and make something with it. My Father in law was taken ill at the end of August so i have fell behind a bit but i have some of my October makes ready.

Here is a reveal video of the August box which i threw together and here is a link to the website The October Goodie Box is Steampunk so guess what i will be making next.

I made a mini canvas using the kit 

I first covered the canvas with gesso and let it dry before adding textures to it using stencils. I then painted it with DecoArt Crafters Acrylic and used texture stamps over the top.

I used the MDF sentiment as the focus for the canvas which i painted with dark blue paint first before adding weathered Wood Crackle Medium and then a layer of White crackle pain. Leave each layer to dry completely before adding the next layer. I finished off the letters using Patina Antiquating cream and glued sequins around the letters.

I added Sequins, gems and shells around the canvas. I love the little starfish cabs which glimmer in the light.

The kit comes with a lot of embellishments and papers so you have plenty to play with.

Thank you for visiting
