Venturing into the land of creating a canvas is freaking scary!!! This took me 4 days to complete and I doubted myself every step of the way. Creating an Art Journal page is one thing…..but a canvas…..that I was hoping to be able to hang up once I had it completed. YIKES!!! I used a bunch of supplies from Limor Webber’s Store, with my newest favorite supply being the Liquitex White Opaque Flakes Texture Gel……I’m really loving this stuff!! There’s a few layers to this piece and I love the texture I ended up with!!
Here’s the completed canvas…..
I wish the camera would pick up the texture better. I also inked the edges of the word “LOVE” in the bottom corner so it would stand out a bit more. I used allot of Prima flowers & embellishments, some Fab Scraps. I Am Roses flowers, other misc embellishments from my stash and from the grab boxes I ordered from Limor’s store a while ago, random strips of paper along with some Tim Holtz Tissue Paperand of course my trusted Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays in Cotton Candy Pink, Toto’s Tornado Black and Golden Doublooms.
Here’s a few close ups:
So, there it is. Going to sleep on it and decide in the morning if it’s going on a wall or not….lol.
Thanks so much for dropping in…..I very much appreciate it.
I’d received some new products from Limor Webber’s on-line store – Limor Webber Designs. I Gesso’d the page and then took some pieces of a junk mail envelope that I turned inside out in order to use the cool designs on the inside of the envelope. I cut it into strips and I adhered them to my page using some Gel Medium along with some random pieces of some Tim Hotlz Tissue paper I had on my desk. I then took some of my Liquitex White Opaque Flakes Texture Gel and my palette knife and just roughly spread some onto the page and dried it with my heat gun. It creates a very cool texture on the page:
I them used some of my Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays in Golden Doublooms, Cotton Candy Pink and Tot’s Tornado Black. I alternated between the three and also added some splatters of each of the colors. The Tornato Black I blotted off right after I sprayed it so as to create a more subtle effect:
The flakes grab hold of the colors sprayed onto them to create a beautiful texture and depth of color. I also took some of my background stamps and StazOn ink and randomly stamped them onto the page. I dug out a sheet of stickers I received in one of Limor’s destash boxes she was selling a while ago. I found a lonely Prima flower that was screaming to be attached, and a tag that I altered to match the page. The heart is from my stash. I took my charcoal pencil and outlined everything on the page and smudged it. I also took some Liquid Pearls and added some random dots of color. Here is my finshed page:
Here are some close ups of the page to show you the texture and amazing colors!
I had fun with this page and am loving my new texture Gel! Take some time to browse through Limor’s store…..there are allot of unique supplies that I think you’ll love as well!!
