We are using canvas for the current challenge over at Frilly and Funkie… hope you'll join us! You can use it in small parts or pieces, or as a whole stand-alone piece. I went with an 8X8 canvas and included a small (3″X3″) one on top of it. I used so many color agents my work table looks a bit like a bomb went off… paints, distress inks, archival inks, gelatos, and Vintaj paintas.
Simon Says Stamp & Show has a ‘favorite technique' theme going, and for me it's been stencils for a long time now. I seem to need a stencil somewhere on each piece! In this case I used four. Also lots of stamps, and a combo of lettering.
Dina Wakley is doing an Art Journaling on Canvas series this month, and I'm sharing this as my second play-along with her. Really looking forward to taking classes with her again next month at The Ink Pad in NYC.
The big “D” stamp is an old favorite by Stampers Anonymous, stamped on Ranger's manila card stock and colored with distress inks. The metal heart is Vintaj, colored with Verdigris patina plus black paint. I adhered it to the mini canvas with one of Tim's tiny brads, colored the same way. I like how it's hanging off the edge:
The corners are filigree metals from The Funkie Junkie Boutique. I colored them with the Verdigris patina and then rubbed in some brown and black distress inks. I am amazed at the finish. This was my first time using the Vintaj products. I have to say, I really like them. I cut the corrugated cardboard letters from Tim's Sizzix Word Play die and inked them with distress inks and paints. The “&” looked lost on the background so I gave it a little mat. Here's another look:
That's it for me, today. I hope you'll come over to Frilly & Funkie and check out the challenge and the rest of the design team's work. We have a $25 Funkie Junkie Boutique store credit for a random winner, and a blog badge for the design team favorite.
