The theme for this month's challenge is "Canvas" and this time I created a little series of three mini canvasses for your inspiration.
I started with creating a masterboard on some heavy card using old book pages, washi tape, stencils, DecoArt white modeling paste, white scraped on Gesso and Shimmer Misters and some rubber stamping.
The canvasses have about ATC size and I used matte DecoArt Decou-page to glue the cut to size pieces on. Then I smudged some DecoArt Traditions Carbon black acrylic paint around the edges using an old bristle brush to create the scratchy patterns and create a kind of "frame".
Next I glued all my chit chat stickers in place and shaded them in using my black soot distress marker on the still slightly wet Decou-page, smudging it with my finger.
For a finishing touch I sprinkled on some drops of gold spray paint.
The stencil I used is from Red Lead, the flowers stamp is an Indigo Blu design. The chevron pattern was stamped using a Carabelle Studio stamp. The small dots stencil is from memory box.
This month - instead of a physical prize - TMC offer the winner a guest designer spot for a future challenge. And I really would love to see your canvasses (as I am a curious girl and always love seeing art created by others)! So I hope to see you and your gorgeous projects over at The Mirror Crack'd soon!
Hugs and happy crafting,
