Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit from Irit Shalom's Designs is here today and I am going to share a full step by step Mixed Media canvas tutorial made with the most gorgeous new and just released Indie Chic Papericious collection.
This is a project I made for this blog post using the flat canvas, Papericious paper collection and chipboards, left over tissue paper and a lot of art mediums.

Here you can see this canvas without the staged photo and to see more details.

And before I move to my step by step tutorial here are some close- ups:

 And now for the full tutorial:

1.Paint the flat canvas with black Papericious Heavy gesso and let it dry. Tear a piece of cardstock from Indie Chick collection to cover the painted canvas as shown.

2. Hand cut squares from the second Indie Chick cardstock and glue them over the canvas as shown.

3. Paint the Papericious chipboard pieces with black acrylic paint.The #1 is half of the Papericious #1 chipboard negative that was left after I used it on another project.

4. Use translucent embossing paste and a stencil to add texture to the flat black chipboard.

5.Glue the painted chipboards over the canvas as shown. Glue torn white tissue pieces around the chipboard shapes and let the liquid glue dry.

6. Spray the canvas with black mist.

7.Hand cut a fee feathers from another cardstock and then paint a few chipboard shapes with the similar dark red paint.

8.Glue the feathers, the painted chipboards and the hand cut sentiment (from the same delicious paper collection) as shown.

9.Add Crackle Glaze medium around the canvas and a bit over the tissue .  Cover the paper title with glaze too. Let it dry.

10.Spray the finished canvas with gold mist all around. Add Papericious sequins inside the #1 chipboard using Glossy Accents as your glue for the sequins.

I hope that you like my Mixed Media canvas and my small tutorial.
