DT Project for Imagine If - Dream

Hi, something a little bit different from me this month for my DT project over at Imagine If. I decided to have a go at doing an art canvas. I am pretty sure this will be the first of many as I now have my daughters friends all wanting one!
I used a lot of elements from Imagine If store which you will be able to see in the next few photos.
 
Firstly I used a brick stencil to add a bit of texture to canvas then arranged my pieces until I was happy then covered everything with Gesso
 
 
 
And then I got to get messy!!! using many layers of Tim Holtz Distress Paint "Walnut Stain", Distress spray stain "Twisted Citron and Ground Expresso" And then finished edges with Distress Ink "Vintage Photo"
I then used my Gelatos to highlight areas. I felt it still needed something else so that's when I added a few embellishments. Here's a couple close ups.
 
 
 
So I really hope you enjoyed my project and it inspired you to get your paints, sprays and stains out!!! Jo has an amazing amount of chipboard to play with the ideas are never ending!

Imagine If - Journal Page

 Today I would like to share with you my latest Art Journal project for Imagine If. Below is a picture of all the product I used, although I decided only to use the one piece of patterned paper.

So in the picture below you can see the patterned paper I used along with 3 different stencils from Imagine If. They are so much fun, I could sit for hours playing with these! To make them pop out a bit more instead of fading into the background I used my black pen to go around outside. I still wasn't happy with it so in the following finished page you will see I also used black around the edges of the Dianmond Stencil.

Ok, before I started playing with the background I had put aside all my chipboard pieces and painted black ready for when background was dry. To finish off I doodled around the edges. I love how this page turned out.

Stencil - Circles
Stencil - Chevron
Chipboard - Fence
