Hi, Veronica here today and Christmas is around the corner. I decided to make a pretty Christmas Canvas using my Stampendous stamps. I also wanted to try out some new product that Art Anthology gave us to play with. The new product is a paste and I mixed it with my sorbet paint and my colorations spray.
So first I prepare my canvas with Art Anthology’s awesome gesso. Below I posted my steps:
Now I am ready to move on with the design. Above you can see that I added the new dot embedibles to the gesso while wet and let it dry. I then added a Lagoon Velvet and Studio Blue colorations layer.
Next I used the Stampendous clear stamps “Christmas Diamonds (SSC1210)” to stamp on watercolor paper. I cut out the images and colored them in with colorations studio blue and some copics
I wanted to try some new Art Anthology paste. There are two kinds, the smooth and the rough. You can add your paints and colorations to mix it in for color.
First the Smooth mixed in with sorbet:
Now the rough paste mixed in with colorations:
Using another one of Art Anthology’s new product “stencils” I used the bubble stencil with both the smooth and the rough paste
Then the embellishments. Some sparkle, some Dimensional Crystal …
I really liked the way my canvas turned out it is a bit shabby and a bit whimsical. The finishing touches were the leaves and flowers.
Thank you for stopping by today, and I wish you Happy Holidays
