For for chunky canvas, I choose the Gelato colors in red and silver. Next I added the vintage papers . Then I gave the canvas an all over time-worn look, by using the chocolate Gelato and used water to blend it in.
To add texture to the canvas, I combined a texture medium with the Gelato. Mixing it in with the blending knife.
Next, I placed the a vintage plastic dolie as a stencil on the canvas and used the knife to spread it in the holes.
Lifting the stencil up carefully and let it dry.
Next add your vintage inspired items, burlap, gears, sayings and vintage finds.
Then I used the same Gelatos in red and silver. I applied the Gelatos to the tote and used a paint brush to really wet down the canvas.
Next I added the chocolate Gelato to tone down the intensity of the watercolors. Make sure to let it completely dry before adding additional elements to the tote.
Next I added some burlap, vintage lace, buttons, earring and hanky.
For the bow cluster, I used a burlap strings, waxed cotton cord, vintage earring and crystal drop from the 7 gypsies Princesca Hardware.
Assorted: vintage lace, papers, flower and buttons
Assorted: vintage lace, butons, earring and hanky.
I hope you enjoyed these fun and easy projects.
