BOSTIK POST #4 - SPRING IS IN THE AIR...
...in fact, it's well & truly here in NSW! Sooo to celebrate, this month I thought I'd create a mini canvas with lots of blooms on it! Something to cheer up my scrappy space:)
And I'm featuring TWO fabulous BOSTIK products. Their hot glue guns [I used the smaller version]:
And their WONDERFUL [especially for OTP projects] PVA glue:
So, I thought I'd do a step by step....
I covered my canvas with the PVA glue, using the tissue paper that I then stuck down:
Then, below, I covered the whole lot with gesso using a sponge:
Now I had some interesting texture. Next I used a plastic doily [thanks Mitra!] & misted over the top:
Now for the fun part - adding flowers! Those of you who know me well, know I do not usually 'do' flowers - but I thought this was a REALLY good, neat way of using some up. So, I totally randomly glued them on - easy peasy with this glue gun - working from largest to smallest, then tucked some leaves in as well:
Now, I'm a lazy peep who does NOT like dusting, so my final step is to cover the whole canvas with a coat of PVA glue - it gives a LOVELY glossy, shiny, protective coating! Here's a closie of me 'painting' it on:
And the final result:
