A Quote canvas.....

Having recently seen the gorgeous work of Christy Tomlinson I felt inspired to have a go at a canvas using some of Christy's techniques but in my style. I usually like all my craft to look "clean" so this was a bit of a challenge but one that I enjoyed and U'm quite pleased with the result.

I used a 6" x 4" board canvas which I stuck patterned paper on to and then used gesso to cover it. I then stamped the sentiment from Unity's Quote Bundle Pack using black Versafine ink. I also used the grid stamp from the Unity store kit - Moments In Bloom to stamp randomly over the canvas.

I added rub-ons, handmade bunting and some puffy stickers and then used a black fineliner pen to highlight elements.

Materials used:
Canvas, My Mind's Eye papers
Unity stamps (as above), black Versafine ink, black Letraset pen, green Versamagic chalk ink
Rub-ons: Heidi Grace, American Crafts, Creative Imaginations
Making Memories puffy stickers

Thanks for visiting!

Gorgeous Jo!! I've done a 'clean' canvas, but you've now inspired me to do one covered in gesso - looks so lovely and still 'fresh' IMHO.
