How time flies... this past week just whizzed by, and here we are so soon with another Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge! This week is open for anything you care to create as the theme says... Anything Goes! So, no excuses this week - get your art on and create something... anything!
I started with a 10" x 10" wood framed mirror from IKEA. I stained the wood with bright turquoise Dylusions ink spray, applied with a baby wipe. I love the shabby, beachy look! (Sorry for the reflection of me in the picture above - photographing mirrors is a tricky business!)
I used Dylusions ink sprays and stencils and 12 x 12 sticky back canvas to create a large background, and added some texture with gesso, circle stencils and the edge of a craft scraper.
Once the background was finished I cut it down and covered 8 chipboard squares. The beauty of sticky back canvas is that no adhesive is needed! Simply peel the backing and stick it down! Easy! Then I used black paint dabber rather than ink with Dylusions stamps to stamp the flying birds and the leafy border all the way around the edges. I painted the leaves in with perfect pearls mixed with water and adhered to the frame with multi medium.
Then I stamped 3 different sentiments onto plain sticky back canvas with jet black archival ink, cut each sentiment up, and arranged them in various areas on the mirror.
I hope you've enjoyed this week's project. As always, if you join in the challenge and post your creation on the challenge blog, you'll have a chance at winning a $50 shopping spree from Simon Says Stamp!
Have a great week!
