A mixed media canvas with Sizzix

Hi everyone, Mou here with a mixed media canvas tutorial for you!
To create this canvas I used:
Others: Canvas, patterned papers, chipboard, gesso, adhesive, whipped spackle, stamper's big brush pens, stamp, palette knife, paint brush, paint

To die cut the trophy pieces, lay the Trophy die on a Sizzix Accessory Standard Cutting Pad, blade side up, place patterned papers on the die and cover with another Standard Cutting Pad. Pass the whole sandwich through the Sizzix Big Shot machine. Repeat with chipboard.

Adhere the diecut patterned paper pieces to the chipboard pieces. Stamp a sentiment on the shield piece using the Awards Thinlits set.

To embellish the trophy, diecut some leaves and birds using the Awards and Wreath die sets respectively. To diecut these pieces, lay a Standard Cutting Pad on the Magnetic Platform. Lay patterned papers on the Standard Cutting Pad and the dies on them blade side down. Cover with another Standard Cutting Pad and pass the whole sandwich through the Big Shot machine.

Layer the wings on the birds. Attach the die cut leaves by layering and tucking them under the shield.

Attach some patterned papers to an 8" x 10" canvas.

Attach the trophy to a chipboard piece covered with grey patterned paper. Cover a bigger piece of chipboard with blue patterned paper. Mount the trophy board on the bigger chipboard and the stacked pieces on the canvas. Apply Whipped Spackle through a stencil with a palette knife around the canvas. Let dry. Stamp randomly around the canvas.
Here's a close-up of my canvas.
Hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and have fun with these cool dies :)
