Happy Tuesday lovelies, Danielle here! I hope you have had a great weekend and are ready to be inspired. Today I have for you a DIY Home Decor Piece. Vanessa sent me some of the Dina Wakley Medium Paint with my last DT package. So I have been dying to play with it and had the perfect idea. These thin canvases have been laying around my scrap room for a while. I decide it is the perfect time to use one of these bad boys.
I started off priming the canvas with Gesso. Then I mixed some Distress Ink with Matte Embossing Paste to create sand. Next I mixed the Dina Wakley Paint with Extra Thick Glossy Embossing Paste to create the background. The Paint is so smooth and creamy!!
For the Flamingos I cut them out of the Websters Pages paper from some dies I had laying around. They came out adorable!!! I used a marker for their eye and mouth.
I added some glittery embossing powder to the sand and melted it with the heat gun for some extra texture. To adhere the flamingos I used the Glossy and Matte Medium to coat the front and back.
For some more texture I added some Extra Thick Medium and sprinkled some mini beads on the medium and patted it down with my finger and let dry.
To finish it off I used three different types of thickers to add my sentiment "Life's A Beach".
Get your hands on the supplies I used in the Butterfly Reflections Ink Store! Click any of the links below.
