Whimsical Moments


Video Tutorial to follow on my You Tube channel





































Happy Sunday!  I'm certainly enjoying the mixed media on canvas craze!  It's such a messy, inky and forgiving artistic outlet for me.  You literally can't make a mistake!  There is no limit to the possibilities with embellishments, techniques and color!  


Today, I've made a very whimsical canvas that includes stamping, acrylic paint, buttons, bobbles, texture past and templates!  However, the best thing about today's project is that I've chosen to include some of my favorite die cuts as a center piece!  That's right!  I could go out and purchase loads of chipboard collections (of which I may like one or two pieces from) or I could use my favorite die cuts!  


I simply cut more than one of the dies and glue them together to create my equivalent of chipboard!  It's so fun and limitless in the range of possibilities!   




INGREDIENTS: 

Vintage Affections Sentiment Enchanted Wishes
Craft Paper for die cuts and corrugated board
DCWV template, The Crafters Workshop mini butterflies template, Heidi Swapp stencil 

This project turned out like a dreamy super lush memory from childhood.  You know the kind that you are most fond of?  It's springy and full of texture, color and movement.


 MEDIUMS: 

Acrylic Paints
Gesso heavy white
Texture Paste
Tattered Angels glitter spray
Studio G Pigment Ink, liquid pearls, beads in a bottle
Inka Gold in pink and silver


JUST LOOK AT ALL THIS TEXTURE!  YUM!


 EMBELLISHMENTS: 

The little Craft shop Etsy store for butterflies, stick pins and pearl accent
Make It Crafty chipboard
bits and bobs from stash including lace and gears
Whimsy Stamps flowers
WOC flowers


INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

The miracle is this, the more we share; the more we have
Leonard Nemoy

I hope I've inspired you all today to get out your inks (even old acrylic paints you could use in dollar store spray bottles like mine).  Enjoy the textures, the combination of inks, the creativity of design and most of all, the smile you get when you're done!

If you enjoy a good 3D project or just need a special box or bag, stop by my ETSY Store above for the available Shape "EZ" product line of Cut templates like bags, boxes, flowers, and cards with tons of add on's!
