Mixed Media Canvas
Made for entry into
I have been itching to enter some Challenges lately so I can just go wild and do anything I want - well that certainly happened here!!!
When I noticed that my Favourite Magazine,
The Craft Stamper !!!!
had a new Take it Make it Blog Challenge, well I just had to give it a go. I spent hours and hours with my Clarity Stamp Stencils and Canvas,
my Grunge Paste
my Open Acrylics,
System 3 Paints
PaperArtsty Transluscent Paints,
a Tesco's wet wipe
and of course the main part of the Challenge, my Clarity Stamps
The more I did the less I liked it, not the Canvas itself, I do love Collage and I was happy with that bit. But I have discovered that I have a slight aversion to PUPLE??
Well to cut a long story short - well not really, this is me after all, Mrs Blog Waffler!!
I decided that the Canvas wasn't good enough to be entered but thought I could get away with it on my Timeline on Face Book. I didn't want to waste my efforts completely. Well as soon as I put it up I got loads of comments from people saying how much they liked it. Then Tracy Eason who is on the Design Team for The Craft Stamper Challenge said "we have a competition on that you could enter it into, you have 53 minutes left before it closes"!! "Well" I said," that is the competition I made it for"!!! So the madness began, Tracy was trying to help me to understand Linky while I was trying to upload my photo from my phone to my computer to Linky at the same time as I was starting up this blog so that I had something to Linky it to!!! Phew!
So Here is my entry into the Challenge. Wouldn't it be a dream to win the Guest DT bit into you favourite Magazine? Hey dream big I say, but when you don't win just be happy that you managed to work out LINKY !!!
I must say I do love the Clarity Stamps and Stencil and being on the DT you may say I am bias, but I am not because I was buying Clarity Stamps way before I joined the team. These stamps in particular are so versatile and are always close to hand for me. I will add a few pictures to show part of the process of my Canvas.
|On the Base I just wanted a mix of colour, I load it up and tone it down, I always used the PaperArtsy Chalky White Paint to tone down any painted projects, I love it.|
|Here I wanted to break down some areas.|
On this bit there is a particular favourite Clarity Stencil of mine - its just stripes, well do you know how much you can do with "STRIPES"?
|So this is me - I love abstract and almost stopped here! I say Almost!|
|So here I was really just playing now to see what I could come up with.|
I wanted darker edges and something to lighten up too.
Thanks you for stopping by, wish me luck!
