This week has been a special time at That’s Crafty! as it saw the launch of That’s Crafty! stamps. There are two collections, all designed by Donna Gray.
I couldn’t resist playing with a word stamp to make this canvas on easel for a home décor piece.
Mini Canvas and Easel
Martha Stewart Craft Acrylics:- Sea Lavender, Putty, Summer Linen
Black Stabilio Watersoluble Pencil
Crackle Paste (I used Golden but That’s Crafty! stock several)
Old Rolling Pin
Apply Gesso to canvas and MDF heart. Onto the canvas, apply Grunge Paste to brick stencil. Onto the heart, apply Crackle Paste. Lay aside.
Roll paperclay to required thickness. Ink up stamp and stamp into the paperclay. Cut into a small tile. If you want cracks to appear, do not condition the paperclay beforehand.
Apply all the paints, with a foam brush, to the canvas and easel, heart and once the paperclay word is dry, swipe on some paint around edge.
Scribble black watersoluble pencil to give definition and to create markings on the easel. Wet a watercolour brush to blend.
Assemble the canvas by layering the heart, key and paperclay word. Prop onto easel and display as home décor.
Until next time,
