Good afternoon all,
Hope your afternoon is going well.
It is such a lovely day today but oh my goodness , it is so windy.
I think we are in for rain tomorrow , mind you
the gardens do need it.
Today I am sharing a mini canvas with you.
I love making these.
I have used some shrink plastic too, now you know how I love that stuff.
I started by stamping the thistle stamp from Tracy on to the shrink plastic. It is best to use a staz-on ink for this.
Next I added some colour with pencils, cut a tag shape and then heated with my heat tool.
Remember the colour will intensify when the design shrinks
Look at the size difference.
I usually flatten the end result using an acrylic block but I loved the uneven edges to this.
I painted the
mini canvas with acrylic paint and when dry added some stamping
I love the little details in designs, so here I added some bakers twine.
I thought it would be a nice idea to stamp directly onto the easel too,
I was so pleased with this design, and it was lovely to see it on HOCHANDA too,
Hopefully it reminds you about projects using shrink plastic as I do think it is one of those things that some crafters forget about.
Thanks for joining me.
Have a lovely weekend,
Whatever you do,
I think we may go out for a picnic on Sunday
Karl, Eric and me...in our garden
Don’t need to go anywhere else..
Take care all
Much love and hugs
