The smallest things canvas.

I have a wee canvas for the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Craft group challenge over on Facebook. In honour of St Patricks day this month, the challenge is to create a project with green in it.

I started with a canvas that i didn’t particularly like and took the Swirled hearts texture sheet from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts which I scraped some texture paste through. I then used different colours of Colourarte silks to get the green colours of the bacground. I printed the quote onto a piece of green paper and then cut it into seperate words before I stuck it onto the canvas. The heart is from the Waterworks shape set and it was painted with Vintage mint silk acrylic glaze from colourarte. I used a stabilo all surface pencil to outline the words and make them stand out against the background. I finished the whole thing off with some prima flowers.

Graphic 45 Typography Dream Canvas

Hi bloggers, here is a project I made with all the little scraps from my typography papers as the background to the canvas (Hels Sheridan calls it paper blocking and I love the idea, thanks Hels). I used the Typography stamps to add some more interest to the background. The paper roses are made using spellbinders and Marianne dies. The pen is from one of the Typography stamp sets, stamped in black and embossed with clear embossing powder.

I am going to be doing a class on this one in February over at Cullen Crafts.

Craft Stamper Magazine Take it Make it challenge

I saw this Take it Make it challenge via a link on Hels Sheridan’s blog and thought I would have a go at the splatter thing. It is quite a while since I had a play just for the sake of it so I really enjoyed making this. I covered a canvas with tissue paper and then painted it (once dry) with Distress Paint and added some distress stain to make the splatters. I used gilding wax on the folds of the tissue paper to highlight them a little. The stamp I used for the raindrops is from Designs by Ryn (I just love this stamp!) and the sentiment is from Sheena Douglas. I got to play with my Melt pot too, I made the flowers and leaves from an old book using the tattered floral and tattered garland dies with distress ink and then they got a dunking in some clear UTEE.
