Hope you've all had a wonderful Easter weekend, so far and thank you to everyone who visited my blog and the Simon Says Stamp blog yesterday to view my Easter Bunny tutorial (if you missed it you can see it HERE) ~ I really do appreciate all your kind words and the lovely comments you've left me!
Well, it's been a busy weekend here on my blog and there's no let up today because it's Monday and that means that we have a brand new challenge starting over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and this week is all about ~ "A is for..."
So how will you be inspired by the letter A? Apples, amethyst, April flowers and art come to mind right away or will you use American Crafts products or Avery Elle? Perhaps you have an art stamp! Whatever you choose, we can't wait to see what you'll create!!
For my project, I had to choose my favourite subject at school and one of my greatest loves in my life ~ ART and I created a canvas using one of my favourite Tim Holtz quote stamps, together with my all time favourite (and much used) colour palette including the gorgeous Cracked Pistachio!!
Dry this layer of paint before blending some colours of Distress Paint over random areas of the canvas and around the edges, I used a light wash of Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feathers and Frayed Burlap but made sure that when the paint is applied you leave the majority of the white background still showing. Dry the canvas surface and then flick Barn Door and Black Soot Distress Paint over the entire canvas. I also added drips of Barn Door down the sides.
I really hope you've enjoyed how this tutorial and love my canvas. If you need any further inspiration for this challenge, then you need look no further than our blog to see all the wonderful creations from all the very talented Design Team members and every week, one lucky random participant has the chance to win a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp. Good luck....
Thank you so much for all your visits today and hope you all have a great week ahead
