Tina’s Technique: Burlap Canvas

Hi Everyone!

It’s Tina here with a new monthly blog series called “Tina’s Technique”. Those of you who know me know how much I love to have all the latest and greatest supplies to play with … I love learning new techniques and using them on projects … and the messier the better.

For this project I used the following supplies:

Tina's Technique - Tuesday January 28th - supplies

  • Archival Ink – Tuxedo Black
  • Stencil
  • Embossing Folder
  • Pretty Peridot Silks
  • Viva Decor Modelling Creme
  • water mister
  • burlap panel
  • water colour pencil
  • Ali Edwards stamp set “Love Always Wins”

Here’s my project:

I had so much fun playing! Here are the instructions:

  1. Start with water color paper panel and adhere pieces of book paper and cheese cloth with multi medium
  2. Allow to dry and run through the big shot with  a Tim Holtz Embossing folder for extra texture
  3. Paint with  Pretty Peridot Silks acrylic glaze (watered down to make more of a wash)
  4. Apply Viva Modellier-Cream  through a Crafters Workshop Stencil with a palette knife
  5. Once dry, outline the heart with a black water color pencil (blended with a wet paint brush)
  6. To darken the heart and highlight the texture, run the paint brush over the heart
  7. Randomly stamp over the surface with an Ali Edwards stamp called Love Always Wins

This started out as a tag but I chopped off the top and  glued it to the burlap canvas to create a little Valentines décor.

I hope you’ll enjoy playing along with me during these monthly posts. Have Fun and come visit me at The Paperie!
