canvasgeddon part 1


The summer is flying by at a dizzying pace. I was lucky enough to have a few weeks off the month and spent some time with the princess herself playing tourist in our town, swimming , visiting friends and family and, of course, shopping.
 I did no scrapbooking what-so-ever. I did however make a few cards and two canvases.
The first canvas is using Momenta products for the D-lite team this month. I started to make a little tutorial and quickly changed directions, so I present to you my half baked tutorial....lol. Here's the finished canvas:

I adhered the strips of patterned paper with gel medium and added gesso to soften the pattern. I wanted a soft landscape look. I used some flower rub ons and some cool new black metal birds (available at Michael's, you have to try them!) that I covered with blue Glimmer glaze.
Afterwards I painted on some turquoise and green acrylic pant. I sealed it with Liquitex Resin Sand medium to create an interesting texture and added some distress ink.

I used some white alpha stickers for the quote and added a bit of paint and ink goodness to blend them into the canvas...and voila!
Here's the 411 on all the cool Momenta goodies I used:

Free to Be Me Paper Pad PA-2263
Design and print alphas ST-4516
Glitter rub-ons RO-1853
Sparrow Metal stickers (love these!) 17476

Happy Thursday and stay tuned for Canvasgeddon part 2 coming soon!
