Hi fellow crafters.. It’s Nanné here to share a fun reverse canvas I created using some of my favorite G45 papers and of course Creative Embellishment chippies..

I wanted to add lots of dimension to my canvas, so I used the back of it instead of the front..  I used the 8×8 On the Boardwalk paper stack by Graphic 45 for the background of my canvas, adding some fabric tape by Tim Holtz.


Most of the chipboard pieces I gessoed with Heavy white gesso, once the gesso was dry, I then colored them using my Copic markers.. Which created that stained look, which I really liked.. it was almost like a happy accident, since I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect using my Copics..


Here you get a better view of the stained looked of the copics on top of Gesso.. absolutely love it..


The fish net I colored with different tones of Grey markers and for the title, I used different tones of Orange’s and browns to create the colors on that, I then added some white paint by dry brushing it to the chippies to highlight bits and pieces..


For the waves, after using my copics, I added some texture paste to the tips to add that “waves crashing onto the shore” look 🙂


and the anchor suffers from rust, since it’s been sitting at the bottom of the ocean for all of these years…  I used Prima’s  Art Extra-vangance rust paste set to create that amazing look of rust.

Thank you for stopping by today.. Till next time..



Here are the chippies I used to create my Beach themed canvas:
