Special Moments: Blog Hop with Art Anthology

Jun 24, 2015

Happy Wednesday! And welcome to my Blog! Today Heartfelt Creations is teaming up with Art Anthology and I have an altered canvas to share with you.

this past January hubby and I went on our very first Cruise to the Caribbean and we loved it so much we have booked another cruise for next year.  The photo is of Cruz Bay in St Maarten, such a beautiful beach!

I received two bottles of dimensional paint from Art Anthology- Kona and Blue Topaz. I thought the Everyday Heros Collection would work beautifully with these two rich and dark colours so here is what i designed.


Instructions: Begin by prepping canvas with  gesso. Also gesso all chipboard pieces and resin frame.  Mix a bit of gesso into the Kona dimensional paint and paint surface of canvas including sides, dab a bit onto chipboard and resin frame. While paint is still wet drop beads into corners and heat set dry.  


Take a template and Blue Topaz paint and add texture to the background, using fingers, add a bit of blue topaz to edges of canvas and dab on all chipboard pieces.  Cut chipboard panel in half from corner to corner and this will be the base on which we will build our layers. Add two large gears to corners using Art Institute dries clear.


Take four card panels (6x6) and cut in half, distress all edges and ink with vintage photo. cut a 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 piece of blue pattern paper from collection, edge and ink distress.  Using luggage and tag die, cut out two small tags and one large tag from tag sheet; cut two of the ATC card panels from tag sheet in half and edge and ink distress.  Stamp cut and mold one set of Botanical Rose on white card stock with black memento ink, ink centers with vintage photo and edges with tahiti ink. Place Art Institute dries clear in center and sprinkle with root beer beads, set aside to dry.Adhere layers together tucking in tags at top, attach photo to resin frame and place chipboard photo corners at opposite frame corners as shown. adhere Botanical roses 


I hope you have enjoyed peeking at my canavs today, be sure to drop on by the Heartfelt Blog and the Art Anthology Blog as I am sure there will be some beautiful creations to inspire you.
