Vintage canvas panel with a twist

I can't seem to get enough of Tim Holtz's Found Relatives.  They have made it onto several of my projects.  I posted my favorite little lady here.  I have done some sweet and some a little bit sassy.

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.  
What have you been crafting?

    1. Thanks Lisa! When I first saw the new dies I really thought I didn't need them. Once again I was wrong. I need all the craft stuff. :)
