Mixed Media - Sin City Stamps - Stencil - Canvas by Design Team Member Lisa Mita
Hi Friends hope all is going well I can't believe we are almost done with May time is just flying… Tuesday Morning at 5am I put my son on a school bus for his 8th grade Washington DC Trip. This is his first time going away without me. And yes I'm totally freaking out.
The only updates I got today was "mom I broke my glasses"… but thankfully he's on instagram so I'm getting all the photo updates… Today's technology - I don't know how my parents did it!!
Decided to have some fun with an old canvas that I didn't know what to do with, Montana Paint Markers and my Favorite Sin City Stamps Stencil.
Here's the canvas that I started - I was trying to play with Alcohol Inks.
So I loved this canvas - but couldn't figure out where to go with this… so I pulled out my handy dandy Montana Paint Markers… I have pretty much ever colors… Below is the fun process.
Using the dark and light of each color gives it a lot of dimension…
Even used Browns, black/ silver and Iron curtain.
OMG I am in love right now… I know the photos don't capture it well - but this is just so textured… I used the heat dryer so it was picking and bubbling when drying.
So - now i'm using my FAVORITE!!! by Sin City Stamps Stencil Flower #2 i'm totally getting the whole line..
Used my other new favorite fun… Super Heavy Gesso…
LOVE LOVE LOVE…
Used my spatula and greens to do the stems.
Then comes out the Montana Marker thin tip.
Using the same marker started outlining the stencils and getting some definision.
Pulled out the stickles for the middle of the stencils. and outlined the stems.
Then pulled out the Sin City Butterfly Die Cuts… Used glue to glue the piece together.
Then pulled this from the Sin City Stamps Plate of Rubber - Classic Spark played with green paint then used the heater so it would bubble around the end.
Then attaching it on the canvas.
Some close ups.
Here's what it looks like and I have to say I LOVE IT…
The colors.. the texture.
