Teach Me Tuesday - Embellishments Galore

Hello MBT Fans,
It's Tuesday and you know what that means here at MB's Treasurista, that's right! Another Teach Me Tuesday Tutorial. First we've got a bright and beautiful canvas by Pernilla Svalborg. Then Deb Edwards has a splendid video tutorial that shows you how to make your own spray featuring several MBT goodies. So we've got sprays, a canvas and a tutorial!

Here is what Pernilla has to say about how she created this Mixed Media Canvas:

So this is my first shot at a mixed media canvas.

This was meant to be my project for the youtube hop MB's Treasurista hosted previous this month, but those of you who remembers, the requirements where white with a splash of two colors.

Let me tell you thou, there are only two colors, but I gessoed the canvas as to prep it and then I wanted to mod podge the spray. I have no idea what happened, but firstly, I could see the spray react with the gesso and when I had managed to even that out it was very much lighter than the peach spray I had in mind. As I also had intention to spray it with green Lindy's i wanted to seal it. So naturally, the color reacted with the sealing as well and there, I had yellow for some reason?! On a try-out the sealing didn't work wonder so I had hopes that I would be able to correct it when I sprayed away later (when everything was glued down), but don't you think that now, why not, the sealing worked and nothing would stick to it...

Oh well, it grow on me after a while and now I'm almost liking it :D

Drink me silly My mojito green & fuzzy navel peach
Nantucket pearls  Cape cod coral
Mermaid seashell Opal sea green, Seamint green & Cocklebells coral

Tim Holtz Catalog
Game spinners
Word Keys
Swivel clasp
Key holes
Hinges fasteners
On the edge die, ornate
Texture fades, damask

Loving all the dimension and details Pernilla! Next, we have a cute embellishment idea made by Deb Edwards!

Today I would like to share how I made this fun and simple flower spray using products from MB's Treasurista. I cut about an 8 inch piece of Moss Rustic Wire, curled the bottom of the stem for stability when gluing to your project.

 Then I just wrapped The White Small Pearl Spray around the Moss Rustic Wire . Then added the Candy Gem Spray and continued to wrap.
With the product from MB's Treasurista I made this simple and Lovely Spray... I hope ya'll like it and will try to create this for yourself... 
The Spray would look awesome on any project that you may be working on....
