It's "Not Xyron But Should Be" Pinterest project week. The Design Team was challenged with choosing a piece of art from Pinterest to use as inspiration in creating our own art using Xyron. The inspiration for my canvas was this beautiful 7 Gypsies Canvas ...
I loved the variations of the hearts coupled with buttons. I just had to try to recreate my own variation of this canvas. I used several Xyron products: 1.5 Sticker Maker, 3" Sticker Maker, Teresa Collins Clear Hold Adhesive, and 3/8 Adhesive Dots. I loved this project! My tutorial for it is below.

Big brush marker
Black artist PITT pen
Heart Punches (3 sizes)
Step One: Apply gesso to canvas panel as a base for the gelato application. Applying the gesso will enable the gelatos to flow and blend nicely.
Step Three: Spray water using mister onto canvas panel and stand canvas up allowing full drippage of the gelatos and water.
Step Four: Use your finger to continue the blending of the gelatos as desired. Let dry.
Step Five: Punch hearts out of patterned paper.
Step Six: Edge each heart with a black big brush marker and rub to create a little shading around the heart.
Step Eight: Adhere hearts to canvas.
Step Nine: Randomly layer scored medium hearts onto each other using Teresa Collins Clear Hold Adhesive. This creates a 3-D effect.
Step Ten: Stamp hearts using worded stamps with black ink onto hearts.
Step Eleven: Add faux stitches randomly to hearts using black pitt artist pen.
Step Twelve: Run button through 3” Xyron Sticker maker and adhere to canvas. Use Adhesive Dots to add additional layers of buttons on top of another.
Step Thirteen: Finish canvas as desired.
