A Fun Fall Canvas & Video Tutorial

Hi Shimmerz Fans, Gabrielle here with you today to share a canvas I made using Fall leaves, some Gesso and a few Shimmerz Paints products!  Winter has come way to fast this year and I wanted to get this Autumn project done before there weren't any usable leaves left on the ground.  I managed to find a few after doing a little hunting around in my backyard.

These are the Shimmerz products I used on this project:
~ Punked Up Purple Coloringz
~ Treasured Hymn Spritz
~ Hot Fudge Vibez
~ Bamboo Leaf Spritz
~ Tuscan Sun Spritz
~ Oh Say Can U Sea Coloringz
~ Miner Miner 49er Inklingz

I made up a Video Tutorial to go with this canvas design....Enjoy!....

Here are a couple more views of this canvas....

I just love the effect the gold 'Miner Miner 49er' Inklingz gives to the leaf and relief parts of the canvas.  One of the cool things about Inklingz is that as you let the water sit in the paint cake, and the more you stir, the thicker and more luxurious the paint becomes.  Then it's easy to 'dry brush' the metalic gold effect on your raised surfaces of your canvas design.

I hope you enjoyed today's project and will give it a go either in these colors or your own favorite color combination!  REMEMBER....If you go to the SHIMMERZ STORE to or some of these yummy goodies, be sure to mention my name in the 'Instructions to Merchant....or message to seller' part of your order and you will receive a FREE/Bonus Shimmerz product in the color of your choice! xo
