Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I am up on the Creative Embellishments blog today. You should check out their store as they have some amazing deals going on.
I was looking around my craft room an noticed my paper cubes are a bit plain. I have been putting off on painting them as I am thinking of changing craft room colors. So I thought it would be fun to make a light weight canvas to hang on the side to give it some temporary style until I make the change. I cut a piece of chipboard down to 8 x 8 and added some Tim Holtz distressed grungy paper for a base. I decided to build up visual layers in order to keep the canvas light.
I used the distressed brick stamp randomly in a sage green ink across the canvas. I followed it with using a patina color ink with the distressed text stamp. For my last layer of stamping I used my new favorite stamps, the halftone circle stamps in patina and chocolate brown. Let me tell you these stamps are so detailed an amazing. To add more layers I used the harlequin lattice and the mini circle panels as stencils. They worked beautifully, plus I still have the panels to use on another project. Love getting extra use out of my supplies.
I used a teal spray on a grunge circle frame to highlight my quote. I edged it with ink and paint along with embellishing it with some painted washers and a propeller. I added an image from my paper stash along with a few little metal embellies and a few splashes of paint. Time to hang it on the cube with some sticky tac. Have a wonderful day.
