Hello and Happy Tuesday!
I am up on the Viva Las Vegas Stamps blog today with a dimensional Mini Canvas project that is FULL of texture
created by using Stamps and Stencils - two of my favorite tools!
you only had a couple of favorite stamps and a stencil or two, you
could create an unlimited number of unique canvases! The possibilities
To create my background texture, I applied
Shimmerz Dazzelerz through a Crafters Workshop stencil and let dry completely. I
then applied several shades of Distress Paint (over the stenciled
pattern) and let the colors mix and blend.
more texture, I covered both canvases with a layer of Crackle Paint.
Once dry, I applied Distress Ink (watered down) and allowed the ink to
seep into the cracks.
I added a bit of stamping, using the Dictionary Page stamp. This added more texture and interest.
To create my focal point, I heat embossed a sheet of heavy cardstock, using the Design Crosses 2x2
stamp. I then painted each square with Shimmerz Inklingz, cut each
stamped image out, then rolled each square into a flat piece.
I glued each rolled square to a scrap piece of cardboard, and wrapped twine around the entire piece.
To finish my canvas, I added several metal embellishments, painted and enhanced to match the colors of the canvas.
How do you create texture on canvases? Please share your tips and ideas! I am always looking for new ways to create!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
