Destination Unknown | New Year Canvas

Hello and Happy new Year to you! We hope this year will bring you good health and lots of happy and creative moments. Jane is here on the blog today with our first inspirational post of 2022. Jane has made a fantastic canvas featuring the paper boat and plane stamps and sentiments from our DESTINATION UNKNOWN stamp set…

Good morning, welcome to my first new Visible Image design team post of the year. I decided that I would celebrate this with a 2022 dated canvas. 

Let’s hope this really is the year when our lives start to return to some kind of normality and we will be able to seek out new adventures both in the UK and abroad.

I worked with these fab stamp sets:

Destination Unknown

the numbers and boxes/squares from Alphabetical

 some background stamping using all the stamps from Mesh-ellaneous

and the uber versatile Fibres stencil

This is what I got up to

Using Prize ribbon, Salvaged patina and Fossilized amber I made a watercolour background. I wanted to make a background representing the land and seas on earth.

Using the 2 blues and my blending tool I then added some stenciling using my Fibres stencil.

I added some background stamping using Fossilized amber distress archival ink and all the stamps in the Mesh-ellaneous set. I just randomly partially stamped, holding the stamps in my hand. It gives a much more organic feel than if you put the stamps onto a block.

Next I stamped the year onto inky mop up card using the numbers and squares from Alphabetical. I cut them out and distressed the edges.

Then I die cut a circle, representing our planet Earth, stamped the sentiment from Destination unknown and again added some faint stenciling using the Fibres stencil. 

I stamped the “directions” onto inky mop up card. I cut them into banners and using a distress tool, distressed their edges. 

I stamped all the sizes of the boats and planes in the Destination Unknown and cut them out. I love these images, they are such fun!

Then it was time to put my 2022 canvas together. 

Here it is…

Close ups

One final shot…

I gave this to my son, as 2022 looks to be a very adventurous new journey for him 😎
