Oddities Canvas


As I enjoyed using all the stamps in a set so much yesterday, I decided to do another one. I brayered fresco paints, pea coat, Baltic blue and south pacific onto a square canvas board. Stamped all the images from the TH Oddities stamp plate in black archival onto tissue paper and cut them out. As you can see, I stamped two eyes. I glued the tissue down with matte medium and once dry washed over the images with a watered down mix of Baltic blue and south pacific. I edged the canvas in pea coat.

I'm entering again into this week challenge over at A Vintage Journey.
