Karen here with another amazing background!
This is a 9x14 flat canvas.
Did you know you can punch holes in it with your Croc-A-dile?
Isn't that COOL!
I painted 2 coats of white gesso on the canvas first. Then I used the dabber distress inks. Blue, green and polished nickel. It's my favorite way to build the backgrounds. I hit it on the canvas pretty hard while squeezing-you get a big SPLAT! Then give it some spritz of water & hold the canvas up and let it spread. I got my heat tool out and start blowing the ink around. You may need to splat some more until you get the look you want.
I printed this gorgeous drawing (by Retta) and colored it with colored pencils-spray it with a sealer before gluing it onto your canvas. I adhered it with mat medium. I used gelatos in blue and black to go around the edges.
I love how this turned out. It will make someone with a beach theme very happy!
