Mix'n'Match Canvas by Lilith Eeckels

Lilith Eeckels' canvases are always amazing and the one she's going to show us how to create today featuring mixing and matching lines is no exception!

CANVAS by Lilith Eeckels

Supplies: Sydney's Snapshot Paper (35688) - Sketchbook, 6x6 Paper Pad (35696) – Sketchbook, 6x6 Paper Pad (35658) – Neapolitan, 6x6 Paper Pad (35743) – Shoreline, Journal Black (53337) – Thickers, Scene Cascade (53341) – Thickers; Other: Font HaloHandletter, Silhouette Cameo, circle pattern


Step 1: Grab all your supplies. In addition to the American Crafts supplies listed above, you'll need a canvas, gesso, and water based varnish-glue.


Step 2: Prime your canvas using the gesso. Use an old credit card to apply it. Don't try to get it smooth; an uneven look adds a lot of interest. Leave it to dry for at least a couple of hours and even a day if you are patient!


Step 3: Choose different 6x6 papers and cut out the shape using a Silhouette. You could use dies and a die cutting machine and mix shapes if you don't have a Silhouette.


Step 4: Start assembling the different pieces. Glue them down using the varnish-glue. Add one or two layers of varnish over the top once you have finished adhering all the cut outs - this will protect the canvas and gives it a nice shine. For extra detail add some black India ink splatters.


Step 5: Add a quote. I used two different types of Thickers and also cut out part of the saying with my Cameo.


Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
