It's time for challenge 10 at
This week the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog is changing it up...with a blog hop! Challenge #10 is ready at the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog but we are doing things a bit differently this time! We are doing a week-long blog hop with STENCIL GIRL!
Each day this week you will visit the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog see the fabulous designs of the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Team, and then you will visit the StencilGirl Talk Blog to see what their team is doing! For the blog hop order, see the end of the post.
Now, for the challenge!
Challenge #10 Spray It! Ink It! Paint It! Smear It! Emboss It!
Show us your inner mixed media diva! Use spray mists, inks, paints, modeling paste, embossing powder, pastels, chalk, and whatever messy media you can find! Let's dig into that hoard, pull out some of that "messy stuff," and use it up! There is a mess-maker hiding in all of you! Let her/him out to play!
I created this 9x12 canvas for the challenge.
If you keep scrolling I even have a step by step on how the background was created.
Stencil Girl Stencils used for this piece:
Stencil Girl stencils
Tim Holtz stamps
Silks Acrylic paint
Golden fluid acrylics & Liquitex acrylic paint
Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Spray
Remember I said there was a step by step on how I created the background?
Well here you go….
Cover a canvas with torn pieces of book text and Washii tape.
Don't cover the whole canvas, the paint will react differently with the different surfaces adding some interesting texture later on.
Give a very light wash of Gesso over the canvas.
Wipe off most of it, you aren't covering the text, just toning it down.
Using the 9x12 Map stencil add Grey paint to the canvas.
Use the 6x6 Broken Circles stencil and teal paint.
Add the circles randomly across the canvas.
Mist with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Spray
Lift the canvas so the mist drips down, then dry.
Stamp in spots with the checkerboard stamp from Tim Holtz and Archival ink.
Use the 6x6 Circle Rays stencil and Orange Gelato.
Add several spots of the rays and orange.
Using Teal Zircon Silks Acrylic Glaze and my finger
I added spots of color in areas.
I repeated this again using Snapdragon Silks Acrylic Glaze and my finger.
Both times just to add a bit more color, and using my finger really lets me rub and blend the color in.
I stamped the stars (again Tim Holtz) using Archival Ink.
And added a large heart cut from book text.
Finished it off with a stamped sentiment and a burst of Vibrant Turquoise mist from Dylusions.
Blog Hop Order:
Christy Butters (that's me!)
