Art Distress Canvas

1 Challenge:
  • Studio L 3      GM02-A Visit to Ranger Ink.com!
I have been wanting to try an art canvas piece for quite some time now. Grungy Monday inspired me to do just that.
The video for this technique at rangerink.com is very easy to achieve. I started my piece out with a piece of word paper that I had already crumbled and sprayed with some copper spray so that is why my images are not as bright as some others, but I wanted to experiment. I used an unmounted rubber stamp first, let that dry, inked it a little bit so I could see where it was then came back with a clear mount stamp on top of that and let that dry then inked it like crazy. Stamped the black word stamp and added the charm. I sprayed, inked, stamped, and sponged around a mask on the canvas, stamped the letters, copper metallic paste on chipboard hearts, glued the whole thing together with the multi-medium. That is great stuff.
Be sure to check out Tim's site for lots of inspiration to get your creative juices flowing. Don't forget to click on the link above to Studio L 3 to check out the other wonderful entries in the fun challenge.
I'm in a bit of a rush today, so no supply list--if you have questions feel free to email me--granybg@yahoo.com

Thanks for visiting and viewing,

Gorgeous canvas, Beverly! You did such a great job with the GM02 resist technique, and the overstamping and embellishments suit it perfectly. It's hard to believe this is your first canvas-- I'd have thought you'd been doing them for years!
