Mini Canvas Trio by Alison Hall



This week I have been using Dina Wakley Media paint and stamps to create a mini canvas hanging.


Here's what I used... 

Dina Wakley Media Stamp Sets - Primitive Icons, Textures
Dina Wakley Media Acrylic Paint - Sky, Lime, Blackberry Violet, Sterling, Black
Dina Wakley Media Gesso - White, Black
Craft Mat
Mat Board
Large Silver Eyelets
Idea-ology Ball Chain

Here's what I did...


1. I primed three 2x2 inch canvasses with the White Gesso, using a palette knife. I wanted a bit of texture, so I did this quite roughly.


2. Next, I stamped images from the Primitive Icons and Textures stamp sets onto the canvasses. I used the brayer to apply the paint to the stamps, adding a dot of colour to the craft mat, rolling it out, then applying it to the stamps. I stamped the script with Sterling, although it doesn't show up very well in my photo, but it adds a bit of shimmer.

3. I used sponged the sides of the canvasses with paint, one with Blackberry Violet, one with Sky, and the last with Lime.


4. Whilst I was stamping the canvasses in step 2, I was cleaning the paint from my brayer onto a scrap of card. I stamped the words onto this painty scrap, with Black paint. As you can see, the word 'LOVE' didn't stamp too well the first time, so I stamped it again. 

5. I cut out the words and glued them onto the canvasses with Glossy Accents. I used the end of a paintbrush to added some Sterling paint accent dots.


6. I painted a piece of 8 x 3 inch mat board with black gesso, added silver gilding wax to the edges, some eyelets and ball chain to the top, then adhered my three canvasses.


I hope I've inspired you to make some colourful art with Dina's luscious paint colours and stamps.
