Inspire Mixed Media Canvas using Xyron

Hi there,
Today, I'm sharing a Mixed Media Canvas that I created using Xyron, DCWV, ink sprays and gelatos. I love the simplicity of the canvas. The products worked beautifully together. I'm including an easy tutorial below:

12 x 12 Canvas
Xyron Adhesive: The New Creative Station, Adhesive Dots
DCWV: 6 x 12 Cardstock with Glitter Stack
Ink Sprays (Fresh Lime, Lemon Zest, White Linen)
Gelatos (Butter Cream, Iced Pear)
3-D Tape
Hot Glue

Step 1: Lay a stencil over canvas and spray various inks  on to the canvas. I used Fresh Lime, Lemon Zest and White Linen ink sprays.

Step 2: Lay 12 x 12 watercolor paper on top of canvas and stencil to absorb excess ink. Let canvas dry. Set paper aside and continue with canvas. Note: This step creates an additional background on 12 x 12 paper for future projects.

Step 3: Rub gelatos around the edges of the canvas with finger. I used Butter Cream and Iced Pear gelatos. Set aside.

Step 4: Apply adhesive to matted layers of cardstock with glitter patterned paper and photo by running them through the New Creative Station.

Step 5: Adhere the layers and photo together.

Step 6: Adhere ribbon to back of canvas. Using adhesive dots, secure ribbon on front of canvas.

Step 7: Adhere photo layer to canvas.

Step 8: Adhere flowers, leaves and bulbs.
Step 9: Add bows and resin. Continue embellishing as desired.
