Canvas with Folk Art Rust Painted Finishes by Plaid

The gorgeous Folk Art Rust Painted Finishes from Plaid are really versatile and can be used on many different types of projects. They have a very realistic texture and colour and are perfect for cardmaking, scrapbooking and many other types of mixed media creations.
I've used it on this canvas to stencil with and also to paint objects with and I've shown the steps below how you can try this .

You will need:
8x8 canvas
Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint - Grotto, Glacier, Rich Black, White Adirondack
Folk Art Painted Finishes - Dark Rust and Light Rust
Plaid, Folk Art Stencil - New Backgrounds
stencil brush
fine paintbrush
2 sizes wooden hearts
Mod Podge Mod Melts
Mod Molds - Flowers, Wedding
Glue gun
Dovecraft dies - Dragonfly and Labels
corrugated cardboard
Jute twine
Mod Podge Extreme Glitter

How to make it:
 1.  Cover the canvas with streaks of Grotto, Glacier and Black Chalk Paint

 2. Randomly stencil with both the Light and Dark Rust Painted Finish.

3. Add some rust detail with a fine brush on the canvas and at opposite corners.

 4. Lightly paint the two tags with the white chalk paint.

5. Paint the two hearts with the black chalk paint.

6. Add the light and dark rust to the black

 7. Make flowers from the Mod Melts and Molds.

 8. Paint with the Grotto chalk paint and rust finish.

9. Make little hearts from the other moulds and paint with rust finish.

10. Glue the hearts to the tags, add a few loops of twine. Glue the flowers on top. Die cut the label shape, lightly paint with Grotto chalk paint and glue to the left side of the large heart with the Mod Melt hearts on top.

11. Tear a strip of corrugated card to fit across the canvas. Paint lightly with white chalk paint and add a little rust at each side. Glue to the centre of the canvas.

12. Glue the assembled tags on top of the card strip  - slightly right of centre.

13. Die cut the dragonfly from card and paint with the rust paint and glue to the top left of the canvas.

14. When everything else is on the canvas you will have a better idea of where to add some white spots with the stencil.

15. Add some Extreme Glitter to the die cut dragonfly and glue the string from the tags onto the canvas.
