The first project I made is a 5x7 canvas panel.
I used several colors of Distress Paint( Rusty Hinge, Mowed Lawn, and Spiced Marmalade) to create the background. I just smeared it on with the daubber and my fingers. While the paint was still wet I layered on some 7 Gypsies Architectural Tissue Paper. I used the Bubble Stencil with Weathered Wood Distress Paint here and there.
Then I took the Faded Dots Stencil and a bit of embossing paste. I used smooshed a bit on to add dimension. The leftover paste was just wiped on randomly with my fingers(then popped on some Broken China Distress Paint). I had to play with my new marker spritzer. I randomly spritzed Black Distress all over the canvas. I used a 7 Gypsies number stamp set and Black Archival ink to finish the wet part of the process.
The Trellis Die is so much fun to use. I love mixing and matching the centers. The edges of all the centers were darkened using whatever ink was on leftover on my brown ink sponge( most likely a mixture of Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, and Pumice Stone).
The found relative image was fussy cut and raised up using foam tape. At this point it was looking a bit serious. I threw on some party hats and was much happier.
A saying that the lovely Anne Taintor likes to use made the perfect sentiment.
Stop back in a couple days to see another canvas.
