Welcome to our July Challenge at The Mirror Crack’d.
Our theme for the month is a Canvas
Our host is Esther,a new member of the DT and she will be choosing our Winner and Top 5.
Instead of a physical prize this month we would like to offer our Winner a Guest Designer spot for a future challenge.
We hope our fabulous Design Team can inspire you. Please pop by their blogs and show them your appreciation.
I love this photo of my granddaughter in her first winter snowsuit and decided to create a textured canvas to compliment it.
I started with a Masterboard, if you want more details check out our April challenge. I brayered all these colours of chalk paint and them stamped script and bubbles on top. An A4 sheet of wax tissue paper just neatly wraps a 6×4 canvas.
The next step was to use a diamond stencil and texture paste. When I scrapped the paste onto the stencil I pushed glass beads into the pattern before removing it. The opposite corner had Rock Candy dry glitter tapped into the paste. I dried it with a heat gun which raises the paste and gives you a nice sprinkle of glitter in your hair too!
Theses are the products I used to get the effects on my canvas.
The photo frame is a TH die cut which I heavily heat embossed with Gold UTEE.
I love love the wintery sparkle from the beads and the frame. I know it is the height of summer but I had a use that photo!
I hope I have inspired you to join the challenge, I look forward to seeing your creations.
