I was looking at past hop's that I've done and July seems to be a month for altered art for me. Last year I did a canvas with the Wisteria kit. This year is no different. But this time the altered canvas is for me! I also will share a digital layout I did and a couple of cards. I rejoined Club Scrap, but this time with the Stamp kit. So I used the stamps and some of the paper for my canvas along with my Silhouette.
First up is the digi layout I did. I used a free template from Scrapping With Liz. Everything used is from the digital kit. The alpha is altered. Since it was patterned and didn't show very well on the layout, I selected it and filled it in with a matching color. The background paper has an overlay on it that I flipped and then changed the blend mode.
Next up are the 2 cards that I made. When I made these I had no intention of getting the Stamp kit. So I cut out a couple of the daisies on my silhouette making a stencil. On the first card I took the cut out daisy and colored around it with Club Scrap Earth ink. I then used the stencil to color the inside. The base paper for both cards is Culinary green (March 2004). The mat on this first card is actually gold and is from County Fair (July 2004).
For the canvas, I'm not going to show every step, but the main ones. First I painted my canvas. I used straw, white and gold acrylic paint. I then used the stencil that came in the Wisteria kit, I really like this trellis, using gold acrylic paint to stencil it.
I had a doily that I must have bought 20 years ago and never used for my sewing projects. I thought it would look nice on the canvas. I then sprayed gold and bronze glimmer spray to 'antique' the doily.
I cut the flowers out of the Oopsie Daisy Stamp kit paper on my Silhouette. I decided 3 layers were enough. I assembled them and then sprayed with gold and bronze glimmer spray to give them a bit of shimmer.
I used the black ribbon that came in the kit to anchor the flowers on the doily. The mat isn't attached at this point I was playing around to see where I thought it would look best.
And here is the finished project. The stamp sentiment came in the Vogue (December 2010) kit. I don't remember which kit the white paper came out of. Maybe Color In Black & White (April 2006) or it could have been Serengeti. I love the texture with the smooth finish and it stamps really nice. Whenever it was I stocked up when the paper was available. Under the sentiment I stamped the framed daisy stamp from the UM Collection stamps. I have a close up, but the camera couldn't seem to catch it. Even though it is stamped in CS Sandstone ink you can see it in real life. Makes a nice subtle texture in the background. I finished it off with a bead 'earring' using beads from past kits and 4 copper brads from the kit. Some day I will have all those beads used up.
