Today, I'd like to share with you my monthly 'A Blank Canvas' series for Frog Dog Studio. Each month, I create a Mixed Media layout starting with a blank piece of chipboard. Follow me through my steps in creating my layout and hopefully you'll be inspired to create your own!
Here's a peek at my October 'A Blank Canvas' layout....
I used lots of bright, bold colors this month, but also was inspired by the current watercolor trend.
Using your favorite stencil, apply Embossing Paste to your pre-gessoed chipboard canvas.
Using a stamp from the Limited Edition kit, and the Embossing Powder from the Mixed Media kit, apply watermark ink in several areas in center of layout. Heat emboss.
Pour some Lindy's Starburst spray into palette and apply to chipboard using foam brush.
I also applied another color of Lindy's spray. (In purple)
Using another border stamp from the Limited Edition kit, and the Embossing Powder from the Mixed Media kit, stamp around the outside of the chipboard. Heat emboss.
Using Lindy's Starburst Spray, apply spray mist to border with foam brush. (using the same method in Step Three). I seriously love the 2 toned color in the Lindy's sprays!
Add dots with a Viva Decor Paper Pen.
For more texture, add Rub Ons to several areas.
Hint: I always like to 'remove' a bit of my rub-ons, so use a piece of basic cellophane tape and 'pull' up little bits and pieces of the rub on.
I had so much fun creating this layout, I created another, using more of the fabulous Frog Dog Studio October Kit goodness.
That's all for today. I hope you enjoyed my projects. Thanks for stopping by!
