|10x10 canvas was painted with yellow acrylic. Modelling paste was added through the Houndstooth Stencil from Want2Scrap.|
|Live In Color paper was embossed using Spellbinders Cane Weave M-Bossabilities folder.|
|Add gesso over seam from paper to canvas. Using permanent ink, stamp text and image in upper right.|
|Add torn pieces of newsprint. Add green ink over gesso.|
|Add dark yellow ink over raised modeling paste.|
|Add image from paper napkin on right. Add tissue paper over newsprint to blur the text.|
|Ink over tissue paper, blending colors.|
|Print "Happiness" quotes on tissue paper. Tear edges and pre-position quotes to test final arrangement. Fussy cut large flower from Susan K. Weckesser's Live In Color paper.|
I realized at this point that I needed to do something to make sure the newsprint did not show through when I added my quote, which was printed on tissue paper, at the top of the canvas.
|Use a pencil to outline area that will be under the quote.|
|Use yellow acrylic paint to cover the area, leaving uneven borders.|
|Add quote...I used matte finish Mod Podge...then ink over top, blending colors.|
Some finishing touches: I used the 3 different stitch stamps from the Grandma's Needlepoint set to create a little more visual interest in the background. On top of that, I layered a piece of Chickenwire Chipboard. I used a black pen to add an outline and detail to the flower before I added the text (printed on tissue paper) on top!
It just makes me happy!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!
