I have to say these two projects I made today make me want to go have them framed as I really love how they turned out.
I started with canvas panels as the base for my projects.
I let the canvases dry and then applied a coat of white embossing paste with the stencils. I let these dry. After they dried I added more paint/mists to give a darker pooling of color around the stenciled areas. I also used watercolor pencils to add shading to the edges.
On my first project I stamped the flowers over the stencil using brown ink and heat embossed brown embossing powder to add more depth. I stamped coordinating butterflies which then were cut with the new dies to attach to my canvas.
On the second canvas I stamped letters and words over the background and on my flowers and dragonfly. I then stamped the sentiment on tissue paper which was misted to the same colors. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I decoupaged the sentiment to the canvas using the DecoArt Decoupage medium. (I love this medium it applies the tissue paper perfectly)
