Hello everyone thanks for stopping by! Today i'm sharing a fun little canvas that I created with a little bit of recycling added in. I love all of the new subway art things I have been seeing around. I wanted a way to be able to make my own letters to stencil onto a canvas....so i'm going to show you how I did that today step by step. Here is what the finished canvas will look like when you are done.
love my Sizzix dies and the packaging from them will make perfect
stencils!!! I grabbed my word play die and cut a few small pieces from
one of the packages I had, ran it through my Vagabond and now I have my
own letter stencils ready to use!
Next I ran them through my Xyron 150 sticker maker using the repositionable cartridge, then laid them on the canvas.
started the layers of color first using Art Anthology Metal Effects
Gold Dimensional Medium. I took a paint brush and added this color
across the letters. The next color I blended in was Art Anthology Metal
Effects Bronze Dimensional Medium in the upper left and lower right
I wanted to add that pop of color. I have to say I think this next
color is one of my favorites!! I added a little Art Anthology
Terracotta Velvet Dimensional Paint across the letters as well.
Now for the fun flower in the corner. I created this using coffee filters. You will need 2 coffee filters.
Layer the 3 filters on top of each other and then fold into a triangle.
Cut the top of them in a scallop shape.
Spray them with the Art Anthology Colorations Spray, I used Sandcastle and then dry them with a heat tool.
I was done with this, I took some Art Anthology Dimensional Crystal
(Red Corvette) placed some on my craft mat, then dabbed the flower all
over it and heat set it. You can place a brad through the 3 filters and
then "crunch & fluff" until you get the flower to look how you want
it. Once that was done it's time to place that flowers and some
Petaloo flowers I had in my stash onto the canvas. Before doing this I
used Art Anthology Sorbert Dimensional Paint Black Leather Jacket and
splattered it onto my canvas. After placing my moss and flowers where I
wanted them using my Xyron Liquid glue, I took a lid from the
Colorations Sprays and made black circles all over the canvas as well.
Here is my finished project.
