I just realized that we are at the tail end of September. The month has been flying by and I have been so busy that I have’t done very much crafting. I did colour a few images here and there starting with this gorgeous image from Stamprints . You can find the image at Stamprints Etsy
I printed the Rose Mackintosh image 4 to a page and coloured them with Spectrum Noir and Chameleon markers. I decided to try different hair and skin tones and was originally going to make a series of cards but when I found some 4×6 canvases at the dollar store I decided to go that route. I used a red and black acrylic paint to create a drippy effect and left it to dry for a few days. Since I had coloured some of the small details on the image a golden colour, I wanted to add a bit of gold to the canvas as well. I achieved this with a Vicki Boutin gold glaze. I originally added a few streaks with a paint brush but ended up rubbing it on with a cloth. I let it dry a couple of days.
I used a dollar store stencil and some Heidi Swapp texture paint to create a bit of dimension. I laid it on pretty thick. Again I let it dry for a few days.
I cut the coloured Stamprints images to the desired shape and attached using a glossy ModPodge, and dried over night.
The last step of my mini canvases was to stamp my sentiments. I used 2 different stamps from Kraftin Kimmie, stamped onto regular paper. I tore the stamped sentiments to give then a bit more texture and then Mod Podged those as well.
Here are the completed canvases! I am quite happy with how it turned out. Next time I think I will lay my image down before the texture paint.
