Under Full Canvas Into The New Year

Sailors use the saying “under full canvas” to mean with maximum speed and energy. So here at Tattered Angels it is full steam ahead into the new year with canvases. Let me put my canvases out.

Let me start with a wallhanging Canvas I did for my friends C&C. They just married in December and I’m so very happy for them. I hope they will enjoy the little gift.

I used a Prima Canvas Screenprint and brushed some Glimmer Glam Chandelier onto parts of the Canvas. After that dried I sprayed over it with Glimmer Mist Santa Baby and Jingle Bells. After that dried I used in some areas Glimmer Mist Snow Queen to give it some more depth. Into the still wet surface I flicked then with the little brush included in the bottle Glimmer Glaze Oil Slick– so to have a more bleeding effect for the drops. The Prima Canvas Album Page I painted with Glimmer Glam Stiletto which gives a nice texture. For the border I used a stamp from me new super favorite stamp set the Architectural Trims. On the Framed Fonts I used also the Jingle Bells Glimmer Mist.

Next I want to show you two mini albums I had taught the last year and have not shown yet. They are both made with Canvas pages.

For the album I had cut out 6″x6″ pieces of canvas fabric and then sprayed with different techniques with Glimmer Mist over Glimmer Screens and added our wonderful Screen Print Clear Stamps. A wonderful way to show that love is a lot of different little things in a relationship.

The second minialbum was created almost the same way – it is a 3×6″ size.

I love how you can add lot’s of texture and techniques by adding canvas pages. One of my favorite things to play with is to see how different the Glimmer Mist settles on the non treated and treated side ofย  canvas fabric. As you can see in the “Liebe ist…” Album the Glimmer misted screen images are more subtile and a bit dreamy and blurry. This is because I used the gesso treated pages here. On the pages for the minialbum below I used the non-treated pages – so the Glimmer Mist could settle right in which ends in a very crisp and sharp image.

And finally a Punky Sprouts Minialbum – Sweetie Sprout- which I used as a banner for as gift for other friends. The album has two canvas pages which I sprayed with Glimmer Mist and stamped with the Architectural Trims. The acrylic pages btw were sprayed with Chalkboard Glimmer Mist and then stamped over- I so love the effect. I also sprayed the Punky Sprouts Bloomers with Glimmer Mist and flicked some Glimmer Glaze over them, then rolled them to flowers.

For the Framed Fonts on the pendant I used Glimmer Glam Organic Garden to paint them.

I hope you enjoyed those projects- there are so many more wonderful projects to come with month- I can’t hardly wait to see what the other girls have up in their sleeves.

Happy New Year- or Frohes Neues Jahr – to all of you!
