Today I want to share a canvas that I did a little while back.
To start out, I covered my canvas in 7Gypsies 6x6 paper, from the Paddington paper pack.
Next, I painted on a border with FolkArt, the color Aqua.
Now, I went to the Cricut, and cut out Imagine using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.
Now, I used the Cuttlebug. I inked the inside of the folder with Colorbox Cat's eye's in Magenta, then used the Cuttlebug like you normally would.
I modpodged all the letters on, and then I painted the rest of the background with the same blue, leaving the area areound the letters blank. Then I came in with Master's Touch Acrylic in Perminant Red, and lightly washed over the area behind the letters, so that you can still see the papers underneath.
Now, I took a stencil and randomly stenciled on some gesso to give the canvas more texture.
I also used some bubble wrap and Master's Touch Permanant Black acrylic to make the black circles:)
And now, for the last step. I found that my letters faded a little into the background so I went aroung them with white ink, not neatly, of course! And then I used my black paint to make the letters 'POP' out at you.
I loved this canvas so much, I have it hanging on my wall. I love the colors, and I am very satisfyed with it!
I hope you enjoyed the steps and that I inspired you!
Have a very happy Hump Day!
