Canvas, Gesso, and Shimmerz - Oh My!



I think it's a beautiful marriage!  This tutorial is EASY.  It involves taking a Punky Sprouts canvas album cover, applying chipboard letters, and treating it with coats of Gesso and beautiful Shimmerz products.

I want to do this AGAIN!  I want to use up my CHIPBOARD!  I can use any CHIPBOARD shapes in my possession!


Here is the video - I hope you enjoy it, and most of all, I hope you try it!  Spell any WORD you want!


Penny Pincher Vibez
Sea Monkey Vibez
Licorice Spritz
Eucalyptus Spritz
Tickle Me Turquoise Shimmerz Paint

Other Supplies:
Gesso Paint
Punky Sprouts Canvas Album Cover (Rebel Sprout Album)
American Crafts Thickers (Assorted)
Glue Arts Glue Gun

Have a wonderful and creative Monday!
