So once home and after a nice lunch of crusty bread and cheese, it was time to get crafting. I got out my paints, I'd caught Sheena's show on CnC earlier, and was eager to try out the stippling technique, and do battle with that modelling paste. I had started this canvas, minus the modelling paste and turquoise, a few weeks ago and hated it. I'd frantaged it, and just didn't like the end result. So could I rescue it?
This is the whole canvas, it is a small square and is canvas board, far easier to stamp onto. As you can see I've got as far as adding another mask in two opposite corners, using black archival. The stars are from the TH grunge board range, painted with the gunmetal blue, then stamped and embossed with a spiders web. No I have no idea where I am going with this! But it is a lot of fun, and very, very messy.
I'd also found a small box in mum's stuff, so I gave that a good coat of gesso and have now covered it in the modelling paste, again using a mask, just got one more side and the top to cover. The lovely sunshine is helping set the paste. I guess I need to exercise a little more patience when it comes to stamping into the paste.
More tennis this week, back to the grass, can we hope that the sunshine will last? Enjoy your week.
