Hello again, today I am sharing a canvas I have created using Imagine Design Create stencils and stamps and acrylic paint.
In my Design Team kit this month I received Imagine Design Create Alphabet Stencil, I got very excited as I have had a project in mind for a while that needed just this to complete.
How to make
I started out by prepping my canvas with white gesso and allowed this to dry. I chose yellow, green and turquoise acrylic paint to create the background to my canvas, spreading the paint with my fingers and making sure I don’t neglect the edges, Once I was happy I left this to dry before moving on to the next step.
Using the same colour paints, my Circle and Squares stencil and a makeup sponge I covered my canvas with square, again not forgetting to cover the sides as well. Once this had dried I stamped over the canvas with the square stamp from Imagine Design Creates Mini Shape Layers Stamp set.
I next chose two contrasting colour acrylic paints and created lines using my fingers, again waiting for this to dry before moving on to the next step.
Before stencilling my chosen quote on to my canvas I worked out my placement and added some pencil lines that can be removed later. I stencilled my quote using Imagine Design Create Alphabet stencil, black acrylic paint and a makeup sponge. Again, allowing this to dry before highlighting with a white gel pen.
I’m looking forward to sharing with you again next week. Eli x
