2 canvases by Zoe

Good morning Lovelies and welcome back to my second post for September - Texture, I've created 2 canvases this time, one more masculine and one more feminine.

I've used stamp sets Mini Scripts, Mail Art, Curiosities and Eccentric Edwardian

I started by using Brusho's on my canvas and laying bubble wrap over part of it to dry which created a fab bobbly effect, once dry I stamped elements from the Eccentric Edwardian set directly onto the canvas, I then layered up with a die cut tag, torn paper and die cuts all stamped with elements from the sets listed, I've used collage mediums by Ranger including Crazing which I applied with my fingers to small areas to get a very subtle crackle effect and then used distress crayon over the top once dry to highlight the Crazing effect.


My second Canvas I used die cuts and a tag to create layers of texture then I sprayed with spray inks, a couple of flat inks and one with mica, just to create some interest, I stamped randomly without a block the script from Eccentric Edwardian, and the beautiful flourish from Butterfly Dreams, I made an embellishment using Gothic Fragments stamp set which I'd mixed texture paste and mica powder to create a lovely bronze colour, I inked the stamp using Versamark and spread the paste over, leaving to dry for 24 hours then gently peeling off, I made two when I did my tag in my post earlier this month! Used a stencil and mica coloured texture paste in a couple of areas and left overnight to dry. I stamped loads of butterflies from the Butterfly Blush set using different colours in Memento inkpads and fussy cut each and everyone, phew! Once it was all dry I flicked wet black ink over the whole canvas and adhered my butterflies and finished off with different colour dots of Ranger enamels and gilding wax around the edges.
