Fabulous Friday - Anything But Challenge

Good Fabulous Friday Morning Everyone! Today we have a wonderful Anything But challenge from our talented guest designer, Jamie Vanderheyden.

Look at this!!! Gorgeous, I know! Want to know Jamie made it??? Well you are in luck, here are the instructions.

Mod podge sealer, glue and finish
patterned paper cut into random strips and squares
acrylic paint
(optional supplies; ink to distress, Distress crackle paint and Glimmer Glaze)


Brush a coat of Mod Podge onto your canvas

Cover the entire surface with your paper- it’s ok to leave small gaps

Brush another thin coat of Mod Podge over the entire surface of your paper covered canvas. Allow to dry.

At this point I added the crackle painted semi circles to the top right corner. Dry.

Using a brush or even your finger, smear some acrylic paint across the canvas. Then, I like to use a baby wipe or a wet paper towel to take a good portion of it off, this gives it an aged/worn look.

Once dry, you can do additional distressing such as inking the edges, i also added areas of ‘Cowboy’ glimmer glaze from the October kit.

Embellish as you wish. I added the word ‘dream’ with some American Crafts thickers and some punched stars covered in crackle paint and the glimmer glaze.

Jamie's challenge to you is to create an altered canvas! Don't forget to share, ok?

This is gorgeous. I'm not sure when I'll get to do this, but I'd love to do a few christmas ones for the holidays. Thank you for the inspiration.
