Here's the full Hop List for both days!
I hop you are having fun hopping along and checking out all the amazing designs the teams came up with! I made a little canvas to share today. I started with a 4x6 Canvas covered with Watercolor Paper. Ken's Mixed Media Boards do a great job with a project like this too! I really stepped out of my comfort zone with this project and had a lot of fun.
I die cut some fun element out of Copper Sheeting with IO Dies.
Here are the colors I used. I wet my canvas and let my color mix really sink in... The little lines you see I just used my fingernails to scratch up the canvas to let the color settle in the grooves. I also added in some of new Liquid Metals.... ohhhh.... these are really yummy!!! I knew I wanted to do something more vintage looking in color, so I kept my colors pretty limited.
Colorburst: Lemon Yellow & Sepia
Liquid Metal: Copper & Yellow Gold
The canvas dried quickly and I started layering me Memento Ink to give it a little age and a bit of a worn look. It's not easily seen in the picture, but let me tell you the shimmer from the Liquid Metals is VERY nice! And a little drop goes a long way.
Mix your Colorburst with other ingredients for a different look!
I die cut the butterfly and metal accents in the corners from Copper Sheeting. The bottom butterfly I painted with White Dylusions Paint. The Copper Butterfly I dripped with Crackle Accents and Glossy Accents then poofed a little Vintage Colorburst on it.
After the Glossy Drips and White Paint dried.... you can see how the color morphed and bled through.
This is the same before and after... wet (above picture) and then dried is the below picture! As it dried... the ranger products ended up losing a little shine and I think looks more like dripped wax.
I liked mixing the Crackle and Glossy.... added a little extra with some of the cracks! I just poured one on top of the other... .a little here and there.
As I built up my background I added few other ingredients...
Some torn book pages for texture, I sanded some away too.
Stencils with sponged Memento Black or paint
Dylusions White Paint (it isn't bright white because the paint will interact with the Colorburst)
I stamped the What if Fly with Versafine Black
I used a White Sharpie Fine Tip Marker to highlight with white
Thanks for hopping with us today!
