I have been messing around with Paints, inks, wax and tissues today..........................You what tissues I hear you say.
Well this time last year I was a wee bit poorly. I had a disc removed from my spine (neck) and replace with a artificial one and was off work for a while. So as you do when you are a crafter I was browsing through a copy of Craft Stamper and found a project by the amazing Hel's Sheridan were she stamped on a tissue and used wax to attach to a canvas. Well having really disliked using wax on a mini Ranger U weekend at AFTH in Harrogate I thought this is so not going to work, but I had to have a play..............Loved it so much when i finished that it went up on my wall and not in the cupboard of doom and the project was also featured in October 11 CS under the section about designers that inspire you. Go Hel's
Anyway I digress.
This weekend I have been quite low and wanted to something to lift me. Clicked on Hel's Sunday Stamper challenge this morning and the theme was Brown and Blue.
I love Dylusions sayings stamp, them make me smile and remind me of Dy so much. So what better way to lift me then a canvas made of the lady's sayings and my fav colours tooooooooooooo.
What did I do
|Separate a 2 ply tissue into 2 pieces (discard one of them) and stamp with whatever stamps you want onto the other. I used Archival coffee ink|
|Cover a canvas board with paint (I used 3 different colours)and stamp directly onto it to create layers with archival ink (I didn't use this particular canvas in the end, but you get the point).|
These were the products i used to create my mini canvas to make me smile.
This is the one that was featured in CS (loving my little Buddha head made out of UTEE)
