I was inspired by all the sprinkles so created a sprinkly type of canvas!

I used an 8x10 inch canvas. I gessoed the background. Then I used 2 gelatoes - Pistachio and Butter Cream to create the background. I scribbled them on in layers and then blended with a little water and my finger.

I gessoed the chipboard and coloured with Pistachio gelato. Then added some Stickles to the dots on the end. Before sticking it down I stencilled some dandelion leaves onto the canvas using Peeled Paint Distress Ink. On 2 of the leaves I sprinkled sticky embossing powder and after heating added Distress Glitter.
I then stencilled some little dots on the sides and bottom of the canvas front using texture paste. Then I glued on the chipboard and added some Collectables from the Kaisercraft Botanicals range, along with a sentiment. I added some Frosted Lace Stickles to some of the pieces.
Finally, I glued some Prima Glass Beads around the chipboard using Glossy Accents.

Hope this inspires you to have a go at the challenge.
