Canvas for Prima Guest

Happy Monday dear friends!
Today I'm sharing a canvas I created for our guest spot at Prima blog 
with Finnabair's March Art Recipe.

 Art Alchemy paints silver and green glass glitters + White Crackle Paste 

March art recipe

I love the light and rich colors of the new Art Alchemy Metallique Paints! I applied, with a spatula, four shades of them with the White Crackle Paste and a little bit of White Sand Paste to create the background of my canvas.
I painted all the embellishments with the same colors, and glued everything down with 3D Gloss Gel. The Mica Powders are a perfect match with the White Crackle Paste.
I get really excited when the water activates them, and watch them flow inside the crackles! I used Pale Silver, Green and Bottle Green. I spread some of them here and there with a dry paintbrush and sprayed water.
As a final touch I glued with 3D Gloss Gel, different Art Ingredients (Micro Beads, Glass Beads and Glass Glitter), and the new Art Stones which look so beautifully on spring-themed projects.

Here are some details
