I started my canvas by applying a thin coat of gesso so I could water wash the colors. I used a lot of water and painted blue on the top and green on the bottom.
Next, I wanted clouds. I cut one out from DP-it was the wrong color. I grabbed my handy sponge.
I started sponging blue ink around the cut out & layered -staggered & repeated.
I used a grass stamp & stamped some on the bottom of the canvas.
I had bought some punch out sheets from my Stampin Up Demonstrator last year. She didn't remember the name. I punched everything out & started layering them on my table to get an idea of how I wanted to lay them on the canvas.
I distressed the carriage and horses so they'd show up better. Aren't the trees cute? They were punched out too.
All the pieces were applied to the canvas with mod podge.
At the very end I sprinkled glitter onto the mod podge.
I love how it turned out. My 8 month old Granddaughter is going to love it when she gets a little older.
I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it!
Does that happen to you?
I used some new products from Deco Arts.
Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister.
See the tutorial at the end of the post.

**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
I love making gelli prints. I've used a variety of types of paints. The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints. The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate.
On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral
stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose,
Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting
them on the plate.
This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and
Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.
New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.
This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!! Except you created it yourself!
The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes.
I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
