I also made a spring canvas, and I will show you in a few steps how I made its background.
At the beginning I covered my base with white gesso.
The next step was to apply Crackle Paste in several places. I simply admire this paste! It gives beautiful cracks.
I added patterns using a stencil/mask and Mixed media paste.
When the pattern was dry, I added colors – I used Color Splash mist to create a watercolor background effect.
I covered the chipboard with two colors of chalk paint.
The next steps were to arrange the composition of flowers, paper and accessories.
