It's Canvas Month with the ID Team

This month our fabulous team are creating a Canvas showcasing how versatile our chipboard is!

This canvas was coated in white gesso and then several different 'Flourishes' and 'leaves' chipboards were chosen and layers to make the greenery background. Several Lindys Stamp Gang spray inks and Finnabair paints were used to colour the background and chipboard. At the top left corner the chipboard was laid down and used as a mask.

This Palette canvas was made with gesso and Colour Crush powders and a smidge of inking. The best way to create one of these is to start with the egg ring frame and then build your elements up around that. The Chipboards were sprayed with gloss spray paints and then a watercolour mist to give them a wet look. Rich contrasting colour is the key to really getting the elements on this kind of canvas to 'pop'.  
The layered gloss spray paints and watercolour mist give the chipboards a wet look. A simple egg ring makes the best frame to build your elements up around.
Spray with white and then gold gloss spray paint. Highlight segments of the chippies with aztec gold kindy glitz. 

The 'canvas' is made up of simple pallet boards nailed together. This simple arm on the back helps the frame stand solidly.


Today Louise is sharing a canvas that she created for Seriously Scrapbooking, for a Mixed Media Canvas Kit that was available for sale at the recent June Scrapbooking and Craft Expo in Brisbane. Louise has created a romantic themed canvas to show case a favourite wedding photo of her godson and his wife.

Thanks for sharing girls!
