''Be Kind" Canvas Tutorial for 7 Dots Studio
Using Dreamer, Soulmates & Illumination Collections







           Hi again everyone!  Welcome back to my tutorial based on the project I shared here
                     & on the 7 Dots Studio blog HERE yesterday - a mixed media canvas.  


Please see the text typed on each photo collage for instructions :)


I would love to hear what you think so please let me know!  Is this the same way you do it?!


You can see my tutorial up on the 7 Dots Studio blog too HERE.


I love spraying on LOTS of mist & drying it off to form drips!


I'm crazy about archival inks at the moment!  These Splash inks are great!!


Hands up who loves opaque white mist?!?


I love this glue!!  It's not cheap but it lasts a looooong time.  Can you get it where you live?


The can below is clear spray paint!  I've never seen it before until I purchased this can recently!!  It's brilliant & seals off-the-page projects with a wonderful sheen...


Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!!

Looks a lot more steps than I use, when I occasionally do canvases..... & I simply do NOT have the patience for overnight drying---so the effect is a bit different cos of the heat gun;) I really like that clear paint spray.....I have something similar, & also the spray glue I have is a Bostik one that's pretty good....LOOOOVe the layers of texture you've developed. Really gives so much depth and 3D-ness:):)

I love your step-by-step tutorial...and have bookmarked it for future reference. I have some spray adhesive but only use it when I attach delicate die cuts. Gorgeous canvas Helen.
