Unity’s June 2018 Blog Hop

Greetings from my craft room this lovely June! I hope you all are enjoying summer weather and good times with friends and family.

For this month’s hop, I’m sharing a 5-x-7-inch mixed media canvas I put together using one of the NEW sets from the Graciellie release.


QUICK PROCESS: First I applied some distress paint to the edges of the canvas and allowed time for it to dry. I stamped right onto printed tissue paper using solvent ink and adhered the stamped/printed tissue paper to the canvas with gel medium (allow time to dry). I framed the canvas with some Faber-Castell Pitt Artist pens and filled it in here and there with distress ink and acrylic paint. I paper-pieced four of the flower portions of the stamp, fussy cut them, machine-sewed a button in the middle, and crinkled it to give it some dimension and interest. It was adhered to the canvas using a dimensional zot.

Here’s another picture of the canvas from a different perspective.
This is such a lovely stamp set. It’s my favorite from this release.
