The brief for this month over at Arty Inklings is to show a version of this canvas above.
So firstly instead of a canvas, I used a squarish piece of corrugated approx 9" x 9".
I gave it a coat of white gesso and painted it with baltic blue and sky fresco paints. I mixed elephant fresco to grunge paste and put it through the diamond and roman letters stencils (only because I mixed way too much - again!!).
Close up of the GP diamonds.
And the Roman letters.
Using the clock stencil I pushed picket fence distress stain through on the top left corner.
Then I needed a focal point but I also wanted to use a die. So I cut the arch from ribbed kraft card, stamped the TH image and coloured with distress markers and a water brush.
I stamped the T!m quote to the bottom in black stazon, attached the arch die/image and finally edged the frame with black eco friendly paint.
I do apologise for the quality of the photo, the blue on the bottom half is just reflecting back into the camera!!
I hope this is okay and fits the brief!!!! Either way, I had great fun making it.
