Hello Crafties !
Today I have a mixed-media 7x9in. canvas designed for Made With Love. This will make a perfect gift for the coming Mother’s Day with a soft, elegant and timeless feel in a pale Pink-Peach combination with highlights in Gold. Sizzix products are a MUST for me and typically I use four or more dies for a project this size. The dies are by Brenda Walton, Tim Holtz, Prima Marketing and Echo Park.
The background canvas was painted with Gesso first, and after, Antique Linen Distress Paint. It was dried completely, then I rubbed-in Distress Crayons Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry, Rusty Hinge and Picket Fence. Add a little water to soften and blend the colours. Dry with a heating tool.
Lay an Stencil over the canvas and using wet-wipes, gently erase parts of the surface. Once I was satisfied with the results, I heat dried the surface.
At this point I had decided which parts of the canvas will remain uncovered and began to stamp those areas using Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Lady Rose. The ink is Staz-On Pumpkin.
The large heart by Echo Park which can be made into a pocket. The word Wonderful is a Tim Holtz Block Word Thinlits and these are my favourite word dies as they cut cleanly, they are easy to add to projects and cards. I’ve used Bronze Glitter cardstock with some light paint daubed on the word to make it look shabby. This is a great way to get gritty texture, and just the right amount of glitter, not too new-ish.
Here you get a a closer look of the Birdcage which was die-cut using Gold Foil, then partially sanded down and randomly inked with Staz On in Pumpkin. Adhere to a patterned paper, lightly swipe Texture Paste into the grooves for a shabby look.
On the left, the two little Birds are part of the Brenda Walton Birdcage Thinlits.
This is a pretty project, a piece that will be loved and appreciate by the person gifted to. I hope you will try to use the ideas here. If you are in Singapore, Sizzix products are available at : Made With Love, 313 Somerset, B2-08, tel: 67337630
