Video Tutorial: Making Home Decor Wall Art {TCW Stencils & Shimmerz Paints}


Hi dear friends!  I'm happy to share with you all today a project I made a little while back using two of my new stencil designs for The Crafter's Workshop!  For this project I used the 12"x 12" size of the Moving Vines Stencil, as well as the 6" x 6" size of the Organic Matter stencil. 


I'm working on a 12" x 24" canvas....I needed something a little bigger to accommodate the vase I wanted to use for this project.  


I wanted to go with some fresh summery colors so I chose, Olive Branch Spritz, Bamboo Leaf Spritz and Glorious Day Vibez from Shimmerz Paints.   Here is a quick little video tutorial I created, a little step by step on how this canvas was made, Enjoy!....


Hope you enjoyed my little video tutorial!  Here are a few closeups of the canvas....


This is one of those times where a 12" x 12" photo is just perfect for a project!  I used Golden's molding paste with a credit card to get a nice even application.


I used the 6x6 Organic Matter stencil to add patches of texture to the background design.  I sprayed on the Shimmerz Paints sprays, darker to the outside, lighter to the middle. I want to note that this design was inspired by a canvas I saw by Vicki Chrisman, she kindly gave me permission to imitate her beautiful design.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and letting me share my newest creation with you all, hope you all have a creative fun week! xo
