Sketchy Doodle Canvas (by Julie)

Hello, hope your Christmas plans are all going well. I thought today would be too late for any Christmas type projects so I went with something completely different...a mini 5" x 7" canvas.

I covered the entire canvas with blue and silver Aztec paint and when dry, applied molding paste through a harlequin diamond stencil, this was then left to dry.
The smaller flower and leaves were stamped and embossed in black, painted with silver and blue Aztec paint and set aside to dry. The larger flower was stamped onto Mulberry paper using a dark pink dye ink.
I inked up the sentiment with Onyx Black Versafine and stamped onto Mulberry Paper. Tear around the outside and apply to the canvas with Glue N Seal .
Next I took a palette knife and applied silver, Soft Form Relief Paste, making sure that I created an uneven surface.
Once everything is dry apply some Distress Crayons over the raised surfaces and blend with your finger. I also ran a black Distress Crayon around the entire outside edge.
Thread some beads onto Head Pins and assemble with the flower and leaves. Glue into place with 3d glue gel.

Thanks for popping in.
 I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and a very happy New Year
Julie xx
