How to make a shabby chic canvas using a gelli plate


I started out by applying pink paint to my canvas with a brush.

I used a baby wipe to add texture to the applied paint.

Using a butterfly mask I applied silver paint to my Gelli Plate.

I removed the mask before I monoprinted on my canvas with the Gelli Plate.

With the help of a baby wipe I picked up some of the paint around the butterfly to create a halo.

I added gold paint to my Gelli Plate and spritzed lots of water and monoprinted on my canvas.

Then without cleaning the Gelli Plate I placed a chicken wire mask and applied a bit of pink paint mixing it with the remaining gold paint on the Plate.

The result is a very layered background.

Then I used the same chicken wire mask to stencil with Crackle embossing paste on the canvas lower corners.

Once dried, I roughly applied a tiny bit of silver paint with a baby wipe to the crackle embossing paste.

I adhered a piece of 2" lace, and a piece of pink ribbon to the canvas.

I stamped and heat embossed in gold many butterflies on white cardstock.

I fuzzy cut and added a touch of pink Distress inks to some of the butterflies.

Finally I layered all the butterflies adhering them with Uhu all purpose adhesive (silicone gel).

I also embellished the canvas with vintage gold buttons, pearls, crystals and fused string pearl beads.
