This is a 6x6 gallery wrapped canvas. The base layer is Idea-ology Tissue Tape applied with Claudine Hellmuth Matte Medium. Then I added the modeling paste with a stencil. Once dry I dribbled Victorian Velvet distress paint directly onto the canvas and then misted it with water. I tipped and turned the canvas so that the color would run over the canvas and down the sides. The next layer was an application of Antique Linen distress paint. I squeezed the paint on to my craft sheet, misted it with water and then tapped the canvas into it drying between each layer. I repeated this same step with Broken China distress paint and then Picket Fence distress paint.
I applied distress ink in Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves, Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain. Then added gold metallic rub-on to the modeling paste and then randomly over the canvas. And finally I spritzed the entire canvas with Perfect Pearls mist in Perfect Pearl.
The letters were cut from Idea-ology grungeboard using Tim's Sizzix Wordplay die. I used Tim's crackle paint in Picket Fence followed by Walnut Stain distress stain to create the distressed crackle finish. The leather heart was cut using Tim's Sizzix Movers and Shapers mini Hearts die from a pink leather scrap.
