Helloooooo November! The wonderful month that hosts my favorite season and my favorite holiday! Of course, the 1st of the month means there's a brand new Mixed Media Monthly Challenge: TEXTURE
I created a trio of burlap canvases...
Our sponsor for November is the amazingly generous IndigoBlu! They were so kind to our design team and sent us fabulous goodies to play with... plus of course an AMAZING prize pack for a lucky player! THANK YOU INDIGOBLU!
First I painted over the burlap with IndigoBlu Gee-Sso-Good gesso and let it dry.
The 6x6 Fontastic paper pack had a great assortment of images to cut and create mini-collages on the burlap canvases. I crinkled up each image before it was adhered with matte medium.
Next I added some texture with an IndigoBlu "Rain Droplets" background stamp. I applied a thick layer of paint to the stamp to place on the canvases.
Now it's time for modeling paste! My favorite way to add texture :) I mixed some modeling paste with gold paint to get the shimmery color. Then the paste was used with the IndogoBlu "Texture" stencil (fitting for the challenge, right?!)
It's a great stencil because it has a variety of different patterns on it... so you basically get 4 in 1 :)
Next came the best part! Playing with the Indigoblu Mega Flakes and FlitterGlu! This stuff is amazing, more detailed than foil, and the shine is incredible. Here I used it with an Indigoblu stamp called "Poppy Heart"... I tested it on both white and black cardstock. Since I was using light colored Mega Flakes it really looked best on the black paper. I can't wait to try it with more of my stamps in my stash!
So now it was time to assemble! I paired the hearts with some random metal charms I had in my stash.
There they are! My mini burlap canvases filled with fantastic Indigoblu products :) You should DEFINITELY play along in the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge this month for your chance to win that awesome Indigoblu prize package! Happy creating!
I'd also love to enter this canvas trio in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: THROWBACK. I picked the challenge from a few weeks ago, Autumn is in the Air :)
