Hello! Today’s blog post is my guest designer post on the Frilly & Funkie Challenge Blog where the challenge is “Put Your Inking Caps On!” The challenge asks us to not use any patterned papers. So, I decided to create a canvas. I have several photos in the blog post with the pictures for most of the process.
I used plain tissue wrap, a stamp, and archival ink to create my background for the canvas. I crumpled up the tissue paper to give it some texture and then used matte medium/collage medium to adhere the tissue wrap to the canvas. Following are photos of the whole process.
I started off by using clear gesso on the canvas.
Next, a bit of Tim Holtz Antique Linen Paint to create a cream colored background on the canvas.
While the paint was drying, I grabbed a Prima stamp and archival ink and stamped the image on Tim Holtz Plain Tissue Wrap.
When the canvas and the tissue wrap were dry, I crumpled up the tissue wrap so there was so added texture to it. I then used the soft matte gel to adhere the tissue wrap to the canvas.
I grabbed some of the new embossing powders from the Funkie Junkie Boutique and a chipboard piece and embossed it. It took two times for me to get the desired look. Prior to embossing the piece, I cut it into two separate pieces.
Next I used a resin memory hardware frame with some of the new sparks acrylic paint and some of the new waxes.
On various metal pieces and art pebbles I used more of the sparks acrylic paints. Even though purple is not a favorite color of mine, the purple sparks paint is a great color!
Before putting all of the pieces together, I decided to add some texture and more pattern on the canvas with a stencil and texture paste. I used the Tim Holtz Distress Crayons to color the stenciled image.
Here are a couple of pictures of things as I was putting everything in its place before painting and gluing.
As you can see the finished project turned out a little bit different with the placement of things. It always seems to happen that way!
Let me know what you think! Go forth and create!
