O is for Ombre Canvas Tutorial with Mona


Hi there! Mona Pendleton here to show you how to create an Ombre colored canvas using the following products: stains, texture paste and stencil.


To begin, I applied Gesso to a burlap canvas and allow to dry.


To add texture and design to the background, apply texture paste to stencil and allow to dry.


Prime embellishments using Gesso and allow to dry.


Adhere embellishments to canvas using Gel medium.


To create an Ombre background, start at the bottom of canvas applying darkest color first. For my project, I started with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.


For the next shade, I mixed a small amount of Dusty Concord Distress Ink with Gesso, then applied to canvas.


Next I added a layer of Milled Lavender Distress Ink.


Repeat Step 5, substituting with Dusty Concord with Milled Lavender Distress Ink. Then I completed the canvas with a stamped sentiment.


I love the various shades of color that may be achieved while creating an ombre project. I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope I inspired you to create.
