I really enjoyed making this 30x30 cm canvas, for the December- Christmas themed challenge on The Artistic Stampers Creative team blog. Please pop over, join in, and I hope you are inspired by all our pieces.
I started by reusing an old canvas, so I painted the whole canvas with black acrylic paint. Once that was dry I stamped using white dylusions paint and the Christmas strippers stamp, unfortunately you can not really see this stamp once the canvas is finished. I then started to scrape paint over the canvas with an old credit card. I used lots of different dylusions paints so had to ensure I allowed the paint to dry in-between the layers so the individual colours could be seen and they did not get to muddy.
Over this I sponged fresh lime through the chevron mask, and squeezed orange through the large dot mask.
Once that was completely dry I stamped over the canvas with a snowflake stamp, and then pierced holes through the canvas in the snowflake centres. I glued grommets/ eyelets in place through the holes.
I went over the snowflakes with a black pen and added some white in place with a paint pen. once it was all dry I pushed some light through the hole made and glued them in place.
