today I am here to show you a quick project that I have been working on using a few of my favourite sizzix dies and finally playing with my distress crayons (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Distress-Crayons-SET-1-TDBK47902-TDBK47902RI)!
so basically I used a smaller canvas which I covered in paper, both text and scrapbook paper, a thin layer of gesso to blend it together, matte medium and lots of distress crayons and that is what I started with.
I then started the whole process of covering a few pieces of mixed media cardstock (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Ranger-MIXED-MEDIA-CARDSTOCK-ISD44628-ISD44628RI)with the same matte medium and distress crayons along with some texture paste to create Eileen Hulls Heart and Soul (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661108/sizzix-bigz-die-flower-heart-soul)and Pansy flowers (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661109/sizzix-bigz-die-flower-pansy)and of course Tim Holtz butterfly frenzy (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Sizzix-Die-BUTTERFLY-FRENZY-Decorative-Strip-Sizzlits-659575-64384). and here you have the whole thing!
the back of the flowers and leaves were simply stamped using a background script stamp. I love how the texture paste added that little bit of extra to the flowers. for the Spring Leaves (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Sizzix-LEAVES-SPRING-Bigz-Die-661111--661111SZ?currency=USD), I used the two green distress crayons and blended them to give the variation in colour!
when cutting out the flurry of butterflies I had cut a few out of the paper that had the texture paste… love how they turned out too!!
by far the Limitations (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Sizzix-Framelits-LIMITATIONS-Wafer-Thin-Die-And-Stamp-Set-660189-660189TH?currency=USD) stamp/die set is my favourite combo yet. so much so a little funny story.. I have ‘lost’ mine a couple of time’s and reordered to have only found it again and ended up with 5 sets!! like is said.. my favourite!!
so here you have my newest little piece of art
it’s a smaller canvas so just the perfect size to hang in my studio or to set on my desk
if you have any questions please let me know!!
