Happy Saturday dear crafty friends!
Today at 13@rts blog, I'm sharing my last project as a Guest Designer.
I've used my May Counterfeit kit for this canvas.
After I've finished the layout, I decided to place it on a canvas, to hang on the wall at my work, as a constant reminder of all the goods in my life, and how grateful I'm for them.
I started by priming the patterned paper with clear gesso. Then I used white gesso over a stencil. The next stage was adding the colors, all dilutted with water, to get the soft pastel look.
On top of the turqouise colors, I addes splashes of brown and gold, and when dried, I stamped around with verious stamps.
I matted the photo on another patterned paper, and backed it on a chipboard to get some dimension. I also adhered the inspiration phrase sticker on the photo.
I adhered the chipboards and the flowers using gell medium. For the final touch, I splatter again with gold and brown mists.
I took a canvas, just a little bigger than the patterned paper, and colored the edges with pastel turqouise mist, diluted with water. I distressed the edges, both of the pattenred paper and the canvas, with some distress ink, and adhered the patterned paper on the canvas.
13@rts products that I've used:
Alice in Candyland - Destination unknown
Until Dawn - Cold day
stencil - Berries
Color glow Emerald
Splash! white ink
Pearl olive green
Pearl brown light
Here are close-ups on the details:
I've used Scrapiniec chipboards, Kaisercraft stamps, Lindy's Gang embossing powders, I am Roses flowers and TH distress ink.
I would like to enter it to the following challenges:
Art Playground - May chllenge 'all about the center'. my main element is the photo, so I've placed in in the center of the design, and adhered the inspiration phrase on the photo itself. I also placed the flower clusters to the photo to draw the attention toward it.
Scrap and Craft - use 3 chipboards. I have the title and bordsrs on both sides of the photo (park avenue borders 01 and borders 05)
Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo - blue sky. I was inspired by the sky and by the turqouise colors.
I am Roses - anything goes. All the flower on this canvas (9!) are IAR.
