Linda has a product challenge this week at StudioL3, asking us to use one of the Perfect Pearls Mists techniques from Tim Holtz's book, Compendium of Curiosities, II. I used my mists on flowers I'd cut from the Sizzix Tattered Florals die. The letters are all jet black (paper or plastic) but the photo seems to show them differently.
I'm also participating in Dina Wakley's Out of the Art Journal canvas challenge this month. I covered my 12X12 canvas with several layers of paint and used Crafter's Workshop stencils here and there.
The large letters are ancient Sizzix "Bigs" letters, that I still love. I ran the flowers and large letters through multiple Sizzix texture fades, and added Wendy Vecchi's Clearly for Art modeling film to the backs of some of the flowers. After it dried I heated them and was able to curl the petals as desired. The XL leaf/stem stamp is a big foam one from Donna Downey, and the metal corners and black plastic letters are Tim's Idea-ology. (Those small plastic letters are just as black as the large paper ones, but the plastic texture shows differently in the photo.)
This was really fun to make and I am hoping to continue with Dina's challenge to make a canvas a week for this month. Thank you so much for the visit. Have a great week!
