Hurray!! It’s time for a blog hop! We’ve all been working hard to create some really fun projects using some of our favourite products and the best part is that you have OVER TEN opportunities to win some amazing prizes! For commenting on my blog you go into the draw to WIN this amazing prize pack below.
Our brief for the hop was to use products from X-Press It, Copic Oz and Inspiration Lane suppliers to create a mixed media canvas that represented ourselves. Now I did a little head scratching over this one, but finally settled on a few things it HAD-TO-HAVE if it was representing me: Sparkle, Colour, Birds, Copics and Drama - I think I squeezed all of this onto my canvas. I've also snuck in a '25' plate as this is the date of my birthday in September - the 25th. I've added a few peacock feathers as these are something I've always had in my home and in my parents (feathers not peacocks!), and of course there is SPARKLE everywhere.
I’ve made this project using:
- Hazel and Ruby:
Fat Roll Washi (Crazy for Chevy - Teals),
Pass the Tissue (Chevron Newsprint & Quote Collage),
Paper Roll - Wrap It Up (Full of Hearts),
Sequin Tube (Green with Envy),
Scalloped Washi Tape (Polka Dot Party) and
Stencil Masks (Everyday Shapes and Blindside Alpha)
- X-Press It:
Triple Tac Glue,
Acid Free Cotton Duck Canvas 279 x 356mm (11x14 inches),
Double Sided Foam Tape and
- Molotow EF White Paint Marker
Chipboard Shapes - Feathers, Birds on a Wire
Stickers - Wild at Heart
Lindy's Spray - Time Travel Teal
Lindy's Embossing Powder - Aurora Amethyst and Desert Moon Turquoise
- Stencilling Brush - The Natural from Plaid
- Copic Various Ink: BG49 & Black 100
- Copic Airbrush and
- Copic Markers: T9 & BG49
- Chromacryl: Texture Paste, Gesso Primer and Black Acrylic Paint
- Crafters Workshop - 12 x 12 Specimen Stencil
- Prima Stencil - Lattice
To make this yourself:
Gather your favourite supplies
Step 1: Adhere washi, tissue, paper and sequins to canvas using Triple Tac Glue.
Step 2: Lay stencil over dry canvas and using a stencil brush and gesso, stencil pattern onto background. Without moving stencil add a little texture paste to random areas to create some extra interest.
It will look a bit like this when you are done.
Step 4: Place Hazel & Ruby Stencil Mask letters and shapes onto canvas and add color around masks using an airbrush, I've used grey around the shapes to make the colours really POP.
Step 4: Outline word in white paint pen then remove letter masks.
Step 5: Paint embellishments with black paint - use paint right out of the tube on non-porous surfaces or mix with a little water to flawlessly coat porous surfaces.
Step 7: Alter the colour of sequins using Copic markers and scatter onto the canvas.
Allow everything to dry and it's finished.
