I spent a bit of time over the weekend playing with stencils, greyboard, mdf, inks and sprays to create this canvas:
I had lasercut some honeycomb from greyboard and adhered random pieces of it to the opposite corners of the canvas before painting it with some rust effect paint from Cosmic Shimmer. I adhered some Tim Holtz tissue paper to the canvas with Indigoblu's Slap It On. I then sprayed through my honeycomb stencil with Fossilised Amber distress spray and allowed some drips to run down like honey. I used my bee stencil with black and gold acrylic paints and used my messy dots stencil with black and gold paint to add further detail. I also used some stamps from Uniko, AALL and Create and Indigoblu. I painted some mdf bees with crackle paste and then added black acrylic paint and pebeo gilding wax. I added glossy accents to them too. Finally I used a fab sentiment die from Stamplorations, stacked it up, added some gilding wax and glossy accents.
I often struggle to know when a canvas is finished...particularly as it is a departure from my CAS designs!
I shall link up at Country View Crafts where this month's challenge is the written word and at Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge for a second time where the theme is layers.
I hope you like this. It was great fun to put together and use some of my stencils and mdf.
Thanks for stopping by!
