Mini mixed media canvas with tutorial

Hello everyone,
 today i am sharing a tutorial of making a   mini canvas with textured  background using Silk acrylic glaze paints.The colors are super shiny,creamy and easy to apply and once dried they give a awesome finish to your projects..Check out Color arte blog for more inspiration and amazing projects and various uses of their awesome products,i'm sure you wont be disappointed if you love mixed media.I made a mini vintage style canvas with lots of texture.Scroll down for step by step procedure of pictorial tutorial for making your own textured background,its super easy n fun.

I took a 4 by 6 inches canvas, n started sticking tissues paper with diluted mod podge.Just apply little of diluted mod podge (with water) to a small area,tear the tissue paper into small pieces and stick it.Crush the tissue a little while sticking, and wet your hands every time while sticking as it will  prevent the tissue coming off the canvas.

Then i took some tim holtz border die cuts ( six of them) ,sticking 3 each together to give thickness n to look like chipboard.

Adhered the die cut on the canvas and randomly applied some "Glass bead glitter gel" above the die cuts to give more texture.

Once the canvas dried completely gave a coat of black gesso to the whole canvas  and heat dried it.

Then with flat brush gave dry strokes of silk acrylic glaze iridescent blue and green colors randomly

Then again gave a coat of black gesso over the die cuts and the corner

Then over the die cuts and corner applied Iridescent gold  and copper colors .

Took some metal embellishments,gave a coat of black gesso and once it dried colored them using silk acrylic glaze-iridescent colors

I have used a vintage image as focal point and arranged the metal embellishments using glue gun.

Hope you enjoyed my tutorial,please feel free to leave a comment if you have any doubt.
