This month our assigned surface was Canvas…In my world there’s nothing that makes me feel more like an artist than staring at a blank canvas. The possibilities are endless, especially when you combine with all of the fabulous products from Tattered Angels.
First up, my version of a subway sign. I love the graphic design of these prints and decided to create my own.
To create this look, I first used Blue Skies, Turquoise Blue and Meadow Green mists to put a variegated foundation of color. I so love these colors together. They remind me of the beach. I cut some random letters with the Slice, stuck them down and dry brushed over them with white paint. It’s such a fun experience to pull up the letters after the paint was dry and see the bright colors underneath.
Next up a smaller canvas…this one was all about experimenting and playing with layers. Originally I made this with the intention it would go in my craft room, but I took it into the bedroom to find some light and I think it might just stay there. Good think canvas is on sale at Michael’s this week and I can buy more for other rooms.
To start I glued some dictionary scraps and then sprayed with Jack Frost. While the mist was still wet I swirled on some Big Apple glimmer glam. Then a few layers of textured stamps and a diecut of more dictionary paper spritzed with Silver Sugar mist.
Finally, my favorite project of the month. I have had these Maya Road banners in my stash since last spring, just waiting for the inspiration to hit. Finally it did! And a bonus I finally found a project to use this lovely ribbon I bought in NYC a year ago.
To started I used some paper doilies as a stencil and sprayed with Tattered Leather which I watered down just a bit for a lighter color. I then sprayed more doilies with Olive Vine. On top some chipboard letters that were painted with Pink Lipstick Glitter Glam and Penny Loafer Glitter Glaze.
My favorite part of the project was ‘discovering’ that a new Studio Calico stamp that arrived just the day before was the perfect circumference for the doily outlines.
