Hi Everyone! I would like to say a warm welcome to all my new followers
and to say that I am very flattered to all of you who follow
me old and new. I still find it all very humbling.
I am still convalescing and not getting much sleep so doing a lot of
blog hopping. I came across the challenge at A Vintage Journey
and thought I would enter this piece.
I made my own little canvases by wrapping canvas paper round cardboard
and priming with gesso, then swiping with texture paste.
Once dry I sprayed with distress ink in frayed burlap and Iced spruce.
Next I stamped the boy from Tim's Stamp in black archival ink .
Where the texture paste hadn't dried fully you get a slight imprint,
I quite like this effect.
On the slightly bigger canvas I prepped it the same as the first
but put the texture paste through Tim's layering stencil.
Once dry I painted it with pumice stone distress paint
& brushed vintage photo and black soot across
the surface as well.
The ruler was made using a wooden garden seed stick which I
stamped with the Tim's Ruler stamp in versa fine black ink
and clear embossed it. I then coloured it
vintage photo with distress ink.
