Layout and mixed media canvas tutorial by Solange Marques

Hello, here is Solange Marques, and I'll share with you more two projects using Imaginarium Designs chipboards. ID chipboards are very versatile and I used them on different projects.
First of all, I made a layout:

I covered the Square Frame using Black Gesso and the chipboard pieces using white crackle paint:

IDS0078 Two Dragonflies
IDT0005  Dress small
IDS0015 Embellishment 8 small

IDFL0016 Wrought Iron Embellishment A
IDS0031 12 Buttons
IDDL0005 Peacock Feather
Graphic 45 Mon Amour collection
BoBunny Crystals
IndigoBlu Black Gesso
Ranger crackle Paint

For my second project, I prepared a tutorial for an altered canvas:

1. Apply modeling paste on some places of the canvas:

 2.Cover it using Black Gesso:
 3.Glue down ID chipboard pieces, metalic pieces , flowers, brushes and any thing that you choose.
4. Cover everything using Black Gesso:
 5.Use a manuscript stamp with clear embossing powder and use a heat gun:

 6.Mix acrylic gesso and water and place this mix on the spray bottle Spray it on the canvas:

7. Spray gold ink on the canvas:
