Fairy Floral Canvas by Jenn
Hello everyone! Jenn here today sharing my Fairy Floral canvas I created
with some amazing Blank Page Muse Stamps!!
The challenge theme for May at BPM is embossing and I wanted to continue that theme with my second project this month! This little 5X7 canvas was fun! I used many different products and techniques combined to add texture and interest and still spotlight the adorable fairy stamped image!
The Blank Page Muse Stamps used here are:
All of these are available in the online store by clicking the links.
Please see my full supply list at the bottom of this post.
To create this canvas I first coated it with clear gesso and then added texture paste white crackle in areas. I allowed the crackle paste to dry naturally so it would result in more cracking.
I added a cardboard frame and then added some metal embellishments, glass stones, a molded clay clock, and flowers.
I also added some small beads that were died using Colorique ink.
I alternated between colors in purples and pinks mixed with water on a paintbrush drying in between with a heat tool. I added some gel medium to the frame and on a few of the frame edges and sprinkled it with Lindy's embossing powders. The powder was heat seat with a heat tool.
To complete the project I brushed some white gesso over the flowers, added some ultra fine glitter and mini art stones for texture. I stamped the backgrounds and script stamps using black archival ink. The fairy was stamped onto heavy cardstock in black archival ink and then clear embossed and cut out.
This added the final touch and the main focal point. Some splatters of frosty blue DecoArt acrylic and white gesso complete it!
Here is a closer angled view to show the dimension.
I really enjoy using embossing in many ways on my projects! There are so many techniques!
