Canvas art using Seth Apter dies and stencils.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

When I saw this new challenge at A Vintage journey I just new I had to join in.

It's some time since I worked on a canvas so thought I'd give it a go and here are the results.


I started with a box canvas


using it as a shadow box.
 
 
I began by covering it with pages from an old book which is always a good way to cover the staples.

 

Then crumpled up some more for the back.
 

Added texture using a variety of Seth Apter's stencils by Stencil Girl.
 


For the inner section I used a piece of corrugated card which I grunged up by removing some of the paper covering and then scraping the surface with the side of my scissors.

 
Next I added some die cuts also by Seth Apter and
then painted this with Gesso. I generally start with white Gesso as I'm not always sure at the beginning what colours I will end up using.


Then decided to cover the whole thing with black Gesso and when that was dry I started some dry brushing using Seth Apter paint sets by Paper Artsy.
The die cuts below are also by Seth Apter and I used texture paste on some before then painted them all.

 
This piece was decorated using a Seth Apter stamp and heat embossing.
 
 
 
This close-up shows some of the gilding wax which was also added. It works particularly well on the screwed up paper only catching the textured areas.

 
I also added some Clear Prima pebbles which I rubbed over with silver gilding wax.
 

 Close-ups for a better view of the detail and the sentiment which was also from one of Seth's stencils and quite appropriate I felt for this canvas.

 The large metallic button was something I've had for a while and it just seemed like the right time to use it. Rubbed over it with gilding wax and added a smaller pebble.



Side view.
 


 Back View.
Really feels like that could be the start of another project!

 
The sentiment is also from one of the Seth Apter stencils by Stencil Girl.

It was about now that I decided it needed a little something extra!
A little rubbing of Gilding wax and it's ready to be attached.
 
And here is the finished canvas.
 
It may not make a lot of difference but it just felt finished with that extra embellishment on top but what do you think?
 
 Hope you enjoyed watching me make this.
 
 
I would like to enter this Canvas in the following Challenges:

WOYWW # 420 # What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends. 
Here we are for another Wednesday at the Workdesk. 
I am here again to show you:

"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".

If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
 
Stamping Ground, our host Julia will explain.


So here is my desk for today!

 
Not too exciting as this weather has put me off doing any crafting but I do have a few things on the desk waiting for me to get started and something else waiting to be finished.

 
New stamp by Visible Image (I have a plan!) on top of a canvas and a half finished card which is on top of some Paper Artsy stamps.
 
Another gorgeous ATC to finish off with from Sandra De. What a beauty Sandra, thank you so much x
 
 
 
Everything else is pretty much the same as last week but at least this will be a quick visit for you.

So that's me done for today.

 Thanks for stopping by and hope you will pop over and join in the visits around the other desks.

 I'm off now to see what everyone else is up to that is after I get back from the Lincolnshire Show.

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 191 # Here Comes Summer.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over
at Crafty Cardmakers.


  June is hosting today and our challenge is 'Here Comes Summer'.

As usual you can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to just be cards, as long as it meets the challenge, and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule! 

Hope you will join in.
And here is my project for the challenge:

Hazy Days of Summer.
Though actually it's been a bit hot here recently!

 
And here's how I made it.
 
A piece of left-over Oxide card.

 
One 7x7 white card blank mounted with orange and yellow textured cardstock.

 
My favourite little text stamp to add some extra detail to the background.

 
Paper Artsy stamps applied faintly in the background to give depth.

 
I found this net amongst some other fabrics, completely forgotten I had it...perfect!
I've cut the centre out to ensure everything sticks down well.
 
 
Then all is left is to stamp the sentiment and add more flowers for the main focus of foreground.

Completed the design by adding Stickles Glitter glue and 3D glaze to the main flowers.

 
And here are close-ups of the finished card.



I hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT have been up to and maybe join in the challenge.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with too.
 Happy crafty card making.

Friday Fun Day with Smiles.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Angela here again to show you what I've been up to this week.

It's only about a week since I showed you these but they have grown so much.


 
The fruit in the garden is coming along nicely too.

 
 
 
As are the flowers.





 
These are self seeded but we like them anyway.


 
Not sure I've shown you this before, it's the clay head of an ape made by a pupil my husband used to teach. It was unwanted so ended up in the garden.

 
The pond's looking good and the fish seem happy.

 
More flowers coming into bloom.


 
And Maisie and Stan enjoying the nice weather.

 
Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.
 
 
And if you would like some more smiles you just need to pop over to see what our other friends have been doing this week at Annie's for
"This Week's Smiles" and you can also share your  smiles too.
