VIDEO: How To Make A Textured Mixed Media Canvas Board With Die Cuts

Add Texture and dimension to your canvas. Video by Kim Dellow

You might not quite get it from the colours, I suppose I should have gone for something more honey-toned, but this week’s project is actually bee-themed! It’s a video ‘how-to’ showing all the stages for adding dimension and texture whilst recycling bits and pieces left over from previous projects.

The bee theme came from the Apple Blossom Hexagon Panel die that I have used to build this textured canvas board and if you saw my ‘5 Ways with Background Dies’ video then you will know that I am pretty obsessed with this die at the moment! The reason why I went for these colours are…well, I will let you find that out for yourself when you watch the video! No spoilers here sweetie!
