Do what makes You Happy!

Hi everyone,
Just a super quick post to show you
 what I was messing around with over the weekend :)
"Do what makes You Happy"
A Shabby looking canvas (12 in) to hang in my craft room.

  Some close ups

Here is what it looked like before I covered it in Gesso.
This is a great way to make use of all those random bits and pieces in your stash! 

I used a variety of different stencils to create the background texture.
Hope you enjoy the photos
Happy creating

  10. Ok so first you texturized the canvas using stencils and what medium? You added the elements you wanted to cover with the primer...Then you painted it with the gesso...then you stamped on the letters and added more?
