Nov 22, 2017

One of my favorite projects from the past year was this canvas that i designed. This was using some of my favorite stamps and dies along with some mists from Art Anthology. I wanted to share it on my blog so im uploading.  

 The photo is of my hubby as we were walking along a path near Wildwood Conservation and taken a couple years ago. 

Other Products: Canson water color paper; 10x10 deep edge canvas; corrugated cardboard; Art Anthology Mists (Sand and Peacock Feathers) Cowboy Glaze; Gold glimmer mist; Distress Inks: Antique Linen; Peacock Feathers; Cracked Pistachio; vintage photo; Brick stencil template; Creative Embellishments Chipboard; (photo corners and leaf flourish) White Sand Texture Paste; Gesso; Gold Alchemy Wax; Tim Holtz Photo Frame; Chipboard title.
Instructions: Prep 10 x 10 inch deep edge canvas with gesso; heat set to dry. Using texture paste and stencil apply to sides and random areas of the top; do not worry where the 8x8 corrugated cardboard will go as it will just be covered up, so concentrate on outside edges and sides of canvas. Heat set to dry. When dry use the Art Anthology mists Sand and Peacock Feathers to color the canvas; I also used the cowboy glaze to add additional color. Gold Alchemy wax was used too. Do the same to an 8 x 8 inch piece of corrugated cardboard' chipboard
Stamp and cut out two of each of the heartfelt love borders on Canson watercolor paper. Adhere together to make the die thicker, paint with gesso; and apply same techniques as above canvas.
Ink the Tim Holtz photo frame with vintage photo; dab some sand mist on as well as gold alchemy wax. Do same for the chipboard title.
Stamp and cut using coffee archival ink classic rose die and stamp and cut out two sets of the 9 set of wildwood florals and two sets of the trio set of florals. Color with distress inks starting with vintage photo in the center; outline with antique linen and lightly do edges with pistachio.
Pierce the flowers with the paper piercer to make room for the gold stamens; mold flowers and three sets of the classic rose vine, one will be left flat as shown on right side of the canvas. Attach stamens after molding flowers and add some diamond dust and Crystal Clear for detail.
Wrap the Heartfelt Love border die around the photo frame as shown, adhere down. The longer border die will go just under the corrugated cardboard on the right. Begin to assemble the canvas placing cardboard down first, then photo frame; add chipboard to top and bottom right corner. Create clusters of the wildwood florals using the classic rose on top of the vine chipboard. Insert 4x7 photo into the photo frame. Detail rest of canvas with gold alchemy wax and Crystal Clear. Feel free to add cowboy glaze for detail on bricks if needed. Complete canvas as shown.
