Materials:

 

Instructions:

  1. Brush a layer of gesso on the entire canvas.
     
  2. Dry emboss scraps of paper and glue to canvas.
     
  3. Use gelatos to draw on canvas. Once finished, spray canvas with water and spread color with wet paint brush. Dry with heat gun. 
     
  4. Add another layer of color with gelatos, using Shape Tape and the stencil as guides. Blend colors with dry sponge.
     
  5. Use iron-ons and PITT pens to add phrase to the canvas.
     
  6. Draw or trace a girl onto the drop cloth. Fill in features with pens and gelatos. Add highlights with Sparkle Mod Podge.   
     
  7. Cut out small phrases for necklace and cover with Matte Mod Podge. Adhere phrases to acrylic shapes and let dry.
     
  8. Spray phrases with water and rub off paper so that only translucent words remain.
     
  9. Use paint pen to draw on edges. String with hemp.
     
  10. Cut a rectangle out of the fabric. Use Scor-Tape on the dress to attach rectangular piece of fabric, tucking edges and necklace under dress.
     
  11. Cut long 1" strip of fabric and roll it up lengthwise. Start from the inside of adhesive dot and wrap fabric around until the adhesive has been covered.
     
  12. Trim the edge and tuck under. Peel the backing and attach to the headband.   
     
  13. Use Phoomph adhesive to attach girl to canvas.
