Another week has flown by and here we are at Monday already but that means it's the start of a brand new week and a brand new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and this week is called "Don't Cut, Just Paste". From texture paste to paste like paints, molding paste to gesso, this is all a staple of great mixed media projects and we can't wait to see how you will incorporate paste into your project!
For my project, I wanted to make a bright, summery canvas recreating the feel of summer meadows blowing in the wind against a bright blue sky and for this, I used texture paste to create the background that would also become the focal point for the entire piece.
Remove the stencil and using Pumice Stone Distress Marker Pen, carefully edge around the paste to create a shadow and make the flowers pop. As a finishing touch, I stitched around the edge of the card and then using the Distress Marker Spritzer Tool, I lightly spritzed some Black Soot over the top.
With the remaining ribbon, I tied it into a scruffy bow and attach it to the left hand side of my canvas.
As a finishing touch to the bow arrangement, I added a small amount of Scattered Straw Distress Paint to the surface of an enameled tag, added the wording "Gather Moments" using Remnant Rubs and attached the tag with a loop pin. I then added an antique button to the centre of the bow, again adding a touch of Scattered Straw Distress Paint for a hint of colour and a decorative pin.
I really hope you've enjoyed the creative process behind this project and that it brings some sunshine into your day!
