Good Monday morning to you all!!
I am back today with a multi media board for our latest challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show: Inspired by. This could be anything from a quote, a song lyric, or your favorite artist.
My daughter requested a turquoise board for her wall, so that got my mind thinking to a very cool technique I had seen on the Faber-Castell blog HERE.
Here is the start of my board. I had already applied a few coats of Gesso to the canvas. I planned a little different project, it was to cover the whole board with my Gelatos:)
Here is the whole board covered :) Not too sure about it at this point, thinking it might be too dark...but I love the canvas texture from the brush strokes from applying the Gesso!
To lighten it up, I decided to apply a bit more Gesso :)Ok...so it looks cool, not sure I like it thought, kinda do and want to leave it lol...so what now???
Cover it with a whole lot of different stencil images :)
I am a little sad that the pretty background does not show much anymore, but I got over it LOL! I just wanted to share...something I had not done before... and that is to use my copics through my stencils...works really well and if you are like me, and have a "few"....they give you many colour options, depending on how many you have of course LOL!!!
The stencil easily cleaned up with rubbing alcohol :)
I still had some leftover salt technique paper lying around, so I decided to use it for my heart...I wanted to share a tip. I cut our my heart as a stencil....that way I can move the open heart around on the homemade paper to find just the look I want :)
Just like every week Heidi from Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $50 dollar voucher to one random participant to spend at the Simon Says Stamp Superstore :)
