It's a Good Day...MFT May New Product Tour 51

Hello! Welcome to the May MFT New Product Tour! Tonight, the MFT DT will be taking you on a tour of all the new products that are available NOW right HERE in the MFT Boutique. I am so excited to share several projects featuring a combination of various MFT products while focusing on several items designed by me: MPD Distressed Background Blocks and the following stencils: MPD Graduated Dots, MPD Delicate Doily and MPD Square Motif. Here we go...

First up is a layout featuring a photo of Scott that was taken while we were visiting Venice, Italy. I was aiming for a grungy masculine look so I used a darker color palette.
To begin, I first created the background paper with a variety of acrylic paints and a Gelli Arts printing plate.
I decided where I would place the photo then I randomly stamped the checkerboard image from MPD Distressed Background Blocks using VersaMark ink then embossed using silver embossing powder. Love the metallic shine! I made a canvas flower using Die-namics Layered Rose then sprayed it with ink spray that made using Black Licorice ink. 
More heat embossed distressed checkerboard design peeking out:
I added some texture using the MPD Graduated Dots stencil and fiber paste. I stamped one of the fun sentiments from Chalkboard Greetings on a die cut tag made using Die-namics Vertical Frame and Steel Blue cardstock. I layered it on a Kraft tag that was made using a Die-namics Traditional Tags STAX die. For a little added interest, I randomly stamped the chicken wire image from Distressed Background Blocks using Black Licorice ink.
Up next is a 6" x 6" canvas. To create the background, I first sprayed using mists made from Blu Raspberry and Kraft inks then I added design as well as texture using the Delicate Doily stencil and fiber paste. I randomly stamped the chicken wire image from Distressed Blackground Blocks mainly around the perimeter and sides of canvas. 
I stamped one of the sentiments from Dandelion Wishes and framed with a die cut made using a Die-namics Designer Labels 2 STAX die. The sweet little butterfly was made using a die from Die-namics Butterflies.
I finished the canvas with several flowers made using the following Die-namics dies: Die-namics Plentiful Petals, Die-namics Layered Rose and Die-namics Mini Royal Roses.
Last but not least is a card featuring the Square Motif stencil, the polka dot image from Distressed Background Blocks along with a sentiment from Chalkboard Greetings
Using the Square Motif stencil along with molding paste, I added design and texture to the background. Once dry, I lightly sponged Kraft ink over the design. The hint of blue was completely accidental as I did not clean the stencil prior to adding the molding paste and Berrylicious ink made it's way into the molding paste. I was happy with the accident, so I ran with it and randomly stamped the polka dot image from Distressed Background Blocks on the next layer:
I stamped one of the versatile and fun sentiments from Chalkboard Greetings on a die cut label made using Die-namics Heirloom Label and finished it off with a flower embellishment that was made using the flower die included in the Die-namics Blueprints 3 set.
In case you would like to know how I created the color, design and texture on the canvas projects, here are a few steps taken along the way:

Step 1: Place the Delicate Doily stencil on top of 6" x 6" pre-Gesso'd canvas, then apply Fiber Paste.
Step 2: Remove stencil, repeat step adding texture to all 4 sides of canvas.
 Step 3: Once texture paste is dry, paint a coat of Gesso over the entire canvas.
 Step 4: Mix a few drops of Blu Raspberry ink with some water in a mister to create desired color then randomly apply color. Allow to dry.
 Step 5: Randomly apply Gesso on surface.
 Step 6: Add a few drops of Kraft ink on canvas, mist with plain water then move ink around with paint brush.
 Step 7: Repeat Step 6 using a few drops of Blu Raspberry drops as well until desired color is achieved.
 Step 8: Randomly stamp chicken wire stamp from Distressed Background Blocks using Archival ink (permanent).
 Step 9: To make textured doily pattern "pop", align up Delicate Doily stencil then apply Gesso.
Completed canvas prior to adding final embellishments:
Thank you so very much for looking ~ I hope you enjoyed my projects and I hope the tutorial was useful!
Be Sweet ;)
