Good of you to drop in.
Day 1 of the Crowborough Retreats went very well.
What a lovely group of arty individuals!
I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Long day, but all the prep paid off, I think.
Before I stop though,
I would like to go back a day, to yesterday’s Canvas blog;
the yellow grunge town stencil:
While I was making this one yesterday, I was also
making a second one, with the second ink of the first one…
So this evening, I would like to take you down the other
Town Stencil road, on a smaller canvas.
Put the same inky stencil on a smaller, 6″ x 6″ canvas board
and ran it through the E-Bosser.
Tore up some strips of tissue,
and coloured them with various Distress inks.
The lighter ones work best.
Covered the canvas with a layer of Mod Podge,
and laid the coloured tissue across the picture.
Screwed it up first, for more texture.
Mod Podge on top too.
Until it looked like a right old mess!
Covered the back with Mod Podge and wrapped the tissue around the canvas to seal at the back.
Allow to dry.
Muted tissue layers.
Attach to larger canvas with double-sided adhesive sheet.
Sealed with Mod Podge.
Should I stop now?
or add some depth with pencils?
Turn a few lights on.
Spectrum Noir pencils work a treat on Mod Podge sealed tissue!
Let’s give them a reason to turn the lights on!
Let’s darken the sky.
That’s more like it.
I am off to bed.
Dave’s not feeling great,
so why not let’s just have an early night.
Can’t do any harm, eh.
love and hugs,
