“Be Kind” Canvas Tutorial by Helen Tilbury {Dreamer/ Illumination/ Soulmates Collections}

Hi Everyone! HELEN here with you today sharing a Canvas Tutorial.

I remember the first time I made a canvas I was so frightened! I saw them online & they looked so detailed – I was not sure where to start!! So perhaps you have the same problem? Let me show you mine…

Before I explain my process to you let’s take a look at all the details. I have used an inspirational quote as well as quite a lot of embellishments.

The pattern papers I have used come from the Dreamer Collection HERE. There are 4 different designs left in stock & I have used all of them!

Those wonderful white hearts on the black base, & the matching words, all come from the Illumination Collection HERE. They are so versatile & match every other 7 Dots Studio Collection so I use them all the time!

They come as a 6 x 12 inch sheet of pop out elements HERE.

To co-ordinate with the beautiful papers & elements from 7 Dots Studio I have used all sorts of other embellishments. Flowers, chipboard, etc, etc.

I have also added many different textures using mixed media. My background uses the Soulmates Squares Mask HERE.

I made the 7 Dots Papers & elements the main feature of my canvas by using them all in and around the central area with my photo.
I hope you enjoy my tutorial & try to make a mixed media canvas

Yourself. It does take a bit of time but just follow the steps & it will all come together, you will see! So just be brave & go for it!!

Thank you for your attention today.

See you again in a few days with my regular project.
