Hi y'all! I wanted to share a canvas that made recently. I love playing with a 6x12 canvas when I'm creating for fun or trying out new ideas. It is such a great size. Plenty of room, but not so large that you are spending forever on it. Sometimes, you just have a little while to play and this size is perfect for that!
I started out with some modeling paste and a stencil. This on is a Heidi Swap stencil. After I let the paste dry, I just painted the entire thing black. I really like the chalkboard look that is so popular right now, so I decided to experiment a bit to see how it worked with a canvas.
Before I started embellishing it, I decided to give it a few splatters with some white and neon colored paints. For both the background and the splatters, I used inexpensive acrylic paints.
For embellishing this one, I used a lot of oldies but goodies supplies! I have so many things in my stash that I still love and I don't care if they are 'out of date'. A good example of this is my Prima Sprites and my American Crafts Thickers. I will not admit how many flowers I have, but the Sprites are so cute! Also, the Rainboots Thickers .... oh man! My all time favorite font for Thickers! Talk about not admitting how many packages. I still buy the black ones! Hopefully, I will never run out!
In addition to my oldies, I chose some newer flair. I couldn't resist the hashtag and liked the way it fit nicely in the bottle cap heart.
I would love to see your take on canvas'. Leave a comment with your blog address, and I'll stop by!
Thanks for stopping by!
