Canvas {with Lynne Perrella stamps by Linda Cain}

Hi everyone, Linda Cain here. I'm back again to share a fun project with you! I LOVE these stamps and the stencils together....see the same shapes in the stencil flowers and the stars on the  ladies crown? Perfect, eh?

I LOVE everything Lynne Perrella, so this set had to be used for a project. These ladies are just gorgeous.

I started with an 8x8 canvas board, Grunge Paste and Lin Brown's Stencils PS001, PS002 and PS003.

When the paste was dry I added Haystack and Guacamole Fresco Paints with a square of Cut n-Dry Foam.

The next layer was using South Pacific, Bora Bora, Mermaid and last Inky Pool. Then the top area was painted with Autumn Fire, Tango, Blood Orange and Cinnamon. A bit of the blues went over the flowers as well.

Then I broke out the Treasure Golds in Classic, Rose Quartz, Florentine and Brass. It's always hard to see the metallics, but this shot kind of gives you an idea here and there. I thought wanted to put a picture in the center, so I didn't paint that area.....I changed my mind later!

I sanded down some of the Grunge Paste areas and added more layers of color. The large Bubbles of GP seemed perfect for the Sunburst Stamp from  LPC05 with Archival Black Ink.

I used mini stamps and archival inks to fill in the background areas. Mini 62. Mini 72 and Mini 74

Mini 74

I used Lynne Perrella's LPC005 collection to stamp the two ladies onto Stamping Paper.

 The one on the right had spots of paint laid down first, the one on the left was mostly done with pens and translucent paints afterwards. I trimmed them down and layered onto black chipboard with a small border.

Here you can see all the colors on the Grunge Paste Flowers with paints and Treasure Golds. You can also see the little Sunbursts stamped on the Grunge Paste Bubbles. You can see the Treasure Gold on the Bubbles here much better, too.

That's it for me. I'll see you back here again next month for another project using the great PaperArtsy Products!

Good grief, that's utterly stunning. The texture looks wonderful & I love the colours.

Lucy Edmondson said...

I totally adore this, Linda, so vibrant! Everything you make I want to slavishly copy because I love every detail and I feel I can learn so much from you. The introduction of the canvas boards seems to add the possibility of so many more layers of stamping. I just love this combination of stencils, grungepaste, and stamps,
