Inka Gold Canvas




 

Hello, happy Monday. My Inka Gold project today is a canvas & as with last week's journal cover, it has lots of texture...........





I had used this canvas before & was bored with it, so I had taken everything off & painted it with DecoArt Media Black gesso before I decided to use it for this project. I added torn pieces of book text & then applied Glossy White Dimension paste through the Imagination Crafts' Wall stencil.....




Added more texture with scraps of Anna Marie Designs Trellis card , more dimension paste through the Imagination Crafts Leaf Swirl stencil..............




Next were drips of hot glue, various embellishments & a sentiment, then the entire canvas was painted with black gesso again, followed by a layer of gel medium to seal everything - important for the next stage............



I wanted to try spraying the Inka Gold paints, so I mixed my colours - Magenta, Champagne & Turquoise - with water in spray bottles

**Add the paint to the water. It will mix more easily.**




I began spraying, building up layers of colour, making sure to wipe the excess off the embellishments & letting the paint dry in between sprays.............






When I was happy with the background colour, I added Brown-Gold Inka Gold & Turquoise highlights to the top layer of embellishments & the letters.

 I stamped & die cut the butterfly, using the Stampendous Pen Pattern Butterflies & the matching Butterflies cutting dies & painted it with watered down Turquoise Inka Gold. 

I made the heart from Martha Stewart Air Dry Clay, painted it first with black gesso, then with Gold Inka Gold..........

Hard though it is to believe, Lisa's Crafting Extravaganza day is THIS COMING SATURDAY, July 18!!! Preparations are in full swing, Lisa is working almost round the clock & I'm helping out when I can. We hope you've all saved the date, it's going to be a good day out, with lots of great demos, lots to buy & a fantastic sale. 


If all the demos inspire you on the day, you can make a card yourself, like the ones below, or create your own. The Make & Take project costs just £2 to make one card.............




There will be a huge sale of crafting goodies, this is a very small portion of what will be available..............


There will also be a raffle with the money raised to the Heart of Kent Hospice..........


It is such a fantastic organisation in need of ongoing financial support, so we hope everyone will buy lots of raffle tickets.

That's all from me for today. I will be back on Thursday to show you the project I made with the left over paint from today's canvas.
