Mini canvas

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 our garden 
Don’t need to go anywhere else..

Take care all
Much love and hugs

Fabulous Jo, such a great idea. You forget about shrink plastic. Lily has used it with posca pens... they work really well too :-)
Thanks so much for sharing as always xx
