It's time for the next challenge over at Frilly and Funkie and Linda is hosting us this time with a challenge of using canvas in your project.
Here is what Linda has to say:
I love using textiles in my art and canvas is such a fun and versatile
fabric to use. You can die cut it, emboss it, dye it by spraying or
dipping. You can use it in its raw state, coat the reverse side with
gesso or multi medium to prevent fraying or use the sticky back kind.
You can stamp on it and make embellishments (flowers :) with it. Oh,
so many fun ways to use it in our art. How are you going to use canvas
for this challenge?
I decided to do some stamping onto canvas and then painting with acrylic paint. The canvas is Claudine Hellmuth's sticky back canvas which I've stuck to Grunge Paper. The stamps are a mixture of Katzelkraft and Serendipity. I've used PaperArtsy Fresco Finish acrylic paints, I've watered them down to give a softer colour. The sentiment is also stamped onto sticky back canvas that's stuck to Grunge Paper. I've distressed both canvases using some wet 'n' dry foam and acrylic paints. I've used a Texture Fades EF and stamped inside it using one of the Tim Holtz stamps from the Reflections set. The pieces down the right hand side are made with a PaperArtsy stamp that I stamped then cut into 3 pieces. The lady who this card is intended for loves owls so I wanted to make sure I used this stamp in some way !
I've used the Tim Holtz Weathered Clock die in the background. I stamped the background with a PaperArtsy stamp and blended Bundled Sage DI over the background and then sanded it with a sanding block.
Make sure you hop over to the Frilly and Funkie blog and check out the DT's fabulous work. I hope you get chance to join us with this challenge.
I'm entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge, Paint it up.
