Anat Weksler presents: A shabby canvas

Hello dears,
I love shabby chic! maybe as much as I love Steampunk, that's what I want to share with you today.
Shabby chic is all about old and new together. Distressed and crackled paint, flowers, layers of  fabric like lace and much more.

To create the background of my canvas:
I started by spreading the Canvas with  White gesso and before it was completely dry I drew lines with a pencil in an equal distance. When the gesso was dried I marked again with the pencil each line.
I painted combining Blue green Decoart fluid acrylics and Patina green Decoart antiquing cream, leaving lots of white lines. I used a wide paintbrush with hard fibers so we can see the strokes. I immediately brushed the background, without paint, to remove some more paint and achieve a distressed look. Next step was to add some White gesso and Raw umber Decoart antiquing cream  strokes with the same paint brush. I left it to dry completely.

The Prima flowers were painted with Pink 13arts Rainbow color and White gesso. 
A third flower was cut with the gorgeous Des fleurs Carabelle studio die set and colored with Spun sugar distress ink. I also cut from the same die set a flower doily, you can see it in the layers.
The leaves were stamped with feuilles Carabelle studio stamp on white cardstock and colored with Crushed olive distress ink.
The Birds image, flowers and Butterfly were cut out the gorgeous Scrapberry's primavera cards paper. The beautiful frame was made with Clay and Frame mold. The Home word is a Cardstock die cut from Prima's French Rivera paper pad.

Now it was time to assemble the layers with: Burlap, Laces, leaves, die cuts,ButterfliesChipboard branches and Natural Moss.
