Then using a stencil and molding paste, create a 3D pattern and let dry for 3 hours.

Once the molding paste is dry, hand write your sentiment in pencil and stitch with embroidery thread using a back stitch .

Paint the textured corners with iCraft® Mixed Media Adhesive and let dry 2 hours. Using the watercolor foil, burnish onto the texture.

Canvas prep

Next cut some sea life images using Cricut Design space (these are from the Life’s a Beach cartridge) using water color paper. Water color paper cuts beautifully in the Cricut. Then use Tim Holtz distress inks to watercolor the die cuts. Then apply the mixed media glue as desired and let dry. Once the adhesive has dried, burnish the seahorse die cut with the Amber Watercolor foil. Secure onto the canvas using 3D foam squares.

Water color the startfish in desired colors and accent with Stickles. Adhere the net pieces onto the canvas using hot glue and arrange the starfish and adhere with 3D foam squares.

I hope this project will inspire you to step outside of your comfort zone and create a canvas for yourself.
