Curious Canvas by Amanda M

Hellloooooo Everyone....

Today I have used an 8 x 10 Canvas Board

and several of my favourite Helmar products to create this project.


Products Used


First off I have used the Super-Tac to glue on the brick chipboards,

then the 450 for the Cheesecloth, Paintbrushes and other Chipboards.


When fully dry, give a couple of coats of white gesso.


I have used some of the tacky glue with a brush and Vintage Gold Embossing Powder to alter these chipboards.

(I always do 2 layers of embossing to get a more smooth finish)

Next I have used one of my favourite products, the Gemstone Glue

to add some bling to my butterflies.


Now its time to add some colour,

I have used a combination of Lindy's Magical Shakers and Starburst Spray,

( but any brand or colour will work)

Start with Polka Purple, then some Yodelling Yellow,

and Seamint Green for the leaves and folliage.

Using the Gemstone Glue again, I have added some Purple Prills

(I didnt end up using the yellow ones)



Now using the 450 attatch all the pieces and some flowers to the canvas.

To finish it off and add protection, I have used some Crystal Kote Matte Varnish Spray.


Here are a couple of close-ups
