Sanddollar Canvas

Hi there,

I would like to show you this canvas that I created for our new Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge:

  • mix Liquitex Pouring Medium with three different colors of Dina Wakley Heavy Body Acrylic Paints (Ocean, Sky, Turquoise) and pour them onto a canvas - let this thick layer of paint dry overnight
  • apply Prima Marketing Modeling Paste through the ARTplorations Bloom Boldly stencil
  • mix Golden Acrylic Glazing Liquid with Golden Fluid Acrylic Paint (Payne's Gray) and add color to the raised areas, let dry for a bit and wipe it away with a baby wipe - repeat the process until you are happy with the result
  • stamp the sandollar from the Tim Holtz Nautical Blueprint set with Versafine (Smokey Gray) onto a piece of watercolor paper
  • color the image with Distress Markers
  • add Versamark to random spots on the sanddollar and heat-emboss it with Stampendous Frantage embossing enamel (Shabby Pink)
  • cut out the CUTplorations Holidays word die from sturdy white cardstock, cover the sentiment with Versamark and heat-emboss it with the same pink embossing enamel
  • adhere the sanddollar and the sentiment with Multi Medium Matte and add shading with a PITT Artist Pen (Cold Gray VI)
  • add splatters with watered-down Golden Fluid Acrylics (Titanium White, Carbon Black) and a Liquitex Splatter Brush 

Thanks for stopping by.
