Hi there, we hope you are having a lovely weekend. We have an amazing week of inspiration ahead as we catch up with all the latest Design Team projects! AND… new stamps previews!!! Lisa Taggart is here today with a gorgeous underwater canvas featuring our amazing seahorse stamp…
Hello! It’s Visible Image day and today I’m doing one of my favourite things… creating another under water scene! This project really mixes it up!
I’m using a wooden canvas board along with acrylic paints and inks… and some foiling for good measure! Today sees several stamp and stencil sets combined. Such fun!
Here’s what I used:
Here are the steps:
I covered the board in white gesso.
I used the paint and stencils to create depth.
I left a light space for the sea horse.
I began the stamping.
I used the embossing glue from Ranger and versa mark ink to stamp the seahorse on to rice paper, I then foiled it using a gold foil from Crafters Companion.
The image was cut out and adhered to the canvas using matt gel medium. I used a white gel pen around the edges and some more acrylic paint with the fibres stencil to help it blend in with its background.
I used some of the stamps from the Organics set to stamp foliage and using foiling glue from pebeo I lightly drew in some lines which where gold foiled in the same foil as used for the sea horse. I also strengthened some of the colours using inks.
The sentiment was stamped and cut out and added to the canvas using foam pads. I also added some gel pen finishing touches here and there.
This is certainly a mixed media effort. Anything goes!
Till next time..
Lisa this is amazing!!! We adore the gold against the deep blues and greens of your sea. Thank you! ♡
