Embellished Canvas

Ann Butler Designs has partnered with Enviromental Technologies and the team has been busy creating projects using resin pieces and more that are being featured on ETI’s blog! I created a canvas using lots of Ann Butler Designs inks and a couple of paints, and I made lots of pretty vintage embellishments with resin to embellish it!

On the other hand, I want to take a minute to remember and honor my father… Today is a very special day since it would have been my father’s birthday if he were alive. We miss him every single day! May the Lord continue to bless him.

Shabby Chic Canvas

Hello and welcome to a new post for Sin City Stamps! This month Sin City Stamps has partnered with Gelli Arts! What a great combination of products! I’ve had a great time creating personalized backgrounds with Gelli Arts’ Gel Plate, and adding details with SCS stamps. It’s almost therapeutic the way the projects come together, and how we have no precise control of the resulting background using the Gel Plate (a truly spontaneous artistic process).

Today I want to show you a 6″x 6″ pink, gold, and silver canvas I made.

Main Supplies
Sin City Stamps:
Butterfly Mask
Chicken Wire with Butterflies Mask
Love of Butterflies Plate of Rubber
Gelli Arts 5″x 7″ Gel Plate
Cotton Wood Arts 6″x 6″ canvas (to be released)
Other
Crackle Embossing Paste
Palette knife
Brush
Baby wipes
Paints: Poster paint in pink and metallic acrylic paints in gold and silver
Embellishments: 2″ lace, 3/8″ gross grain ribbon, gold vintage buttons, Fused string pearl beads, pearls, crystals
Adhesives: Uhu all purpose adhesive, Bazic two sided tape

The background was created with Gelli Arts Gel Plate. I also stenciled with crackle paint, which adds to the shabby chic design. I layered many butterflies that I stamped, heat embossed and fuzzy cut to create a 3D effect.
