Mid-Week Mojo - A Dreamy Canvas

It's Wednesday, and guess what that means?? Not only does it mean half of the week is over, but it means it is time for Mid-Week Mojo!! This is Emily with a project I created using the Lucky Girl Crafts February Kit, "Kid at Heart."  We saw with Natalie's project that this kit not only can be used for kids stuff, but stuff for yourself as well! 

I created an altered canvas for my bedroom for today. I absolutely LOVE the Bo Bunny papers and the Adornit paper with stars. They were calling to me. All I thought was nighttime, and a night scene with stars in the sky. Which is how this canvas came to be. 

Supplies Needed:

Blank stretched canvas
White Acrylic Gesso
Mod Podge
Glimmer Mist

This is a VERY simple project to create on your own with scraps from this awesome kit! The first step in creating this is to cover your blank canvas with two layers of White Gesso. After the gesso has dried, use your Glimmer Mist in your chosen color to spritz the canvas for your background. You then fussy cut some of the stars from out of the Adornit paper. I left some of them together in bunches as I was cutting and cut others apart. Take the darker blue side of your Bo Bunny paper and hand cut some clouds. I used a white opaque pen to trace around the clouds. Now is time for the fun part! Use Mod Podge to adhere the stars and clouds on your canvas in a night scene. After the pieces where adhered, I coated everything in a layer of Mod Podge. This also smears some of the Glimmer Mist, but I love the way it looks. I then didn't have to mist it again. I found the quote on dreamers online, printed it in a special font on white paper, misted it, and then cut it out. I adhered it with Mod Podge as well. Let it dry and you have a wonderful decoration!!! 

Here is a close up.
