I'm sure you have all guessed that
"At Random" indicates we have a
SALE! Yay! Who doesn't like a
More stamps have been added and
some alterables. It's a good time
to stock up on the basics too......
Nothing basic about our project
for today. Claire Jackson has
made a beautiful canvas for us:
"I started by spreading gesso on
the canvas to create some
I used a DecoArt stencil and PaperArtsy
grunge paste to add the hills across
Using a palette knife I scraped some
DecoArt crackle paste on the edges and
corners and used a heat tool
so that it bubbled.
Then the whole canvas was given
a coat of gesso.
I painted in the background with
PaperArtsy fresco finish chalk paint.
I started off with a paint brush but
used fingers, paper towel and cotton buds
to get even more texture onto the canvas
and gradually built up layers of colour.
To finish I added a little bit of stamping
in black archival ink.
I painted the Tando whimsical bird pieces,
assembled them and stuck them to
The set makes 6 birds so I have plenty
of parts left over.
It would make a great picture for
a child’s bedroom.
I think it should be entitled
‘Look at Me!’
What do you think?"
Thank you for a lovely project
Claire. I do agree that it would
be good for a child's bedroom
Think I might even hang it in
the kitchen and call it
'What!? Another one?"
