Romantic Mixed Media Canvas and VIDEO TUTORIAL with VOICE for Little Birdie Crafts

Welcome to my creative space!

The Birds and Berries collection from Little Birdie Crafts is simply gorgeous and perfect for this spring time shabby mixed media canvas. 

I have created a video tutorial sharing the techniques used to bring this canvas together. I decided to go out of my comfort zone and added voice instructions to my video. I would be so grateful if you would leave a comment either on YouTube or here to let me know what you think! As always, your feedback is so appreciated!

In this DIY Mixed Media Canvas Tutorial Learn how to:
~ Adhere base paper to the canvas
~ Sand to distress edges
~ Add texture by stenciling with Grainy Texture Paste
~ Add color and texture to chipboard
~ Paint resin pieces
~ Use art wax to highlight texture
~ Dry brush with white gesso to highlight texture and soften colors
~ Add texture with Craft Pellets and Metal Microbeads
~ Add depth with Color Splash
