Enjoy the Moments – Canvas ~ Australian Scrapbook Ideas #19 ~ Tried & Tested – Texture Play ~ Dusty Attic

Here is a Canvas I created for the Tried and Tested – Texture Play article in Issue 19 of the
This was fun to create, lots of modelling paste on this one and using stencils and chipboard to create the texture patterns.
The full step by step instructions for this canvas can be found in this issue.

Handy Hint
Spritz over spray inks with water to give different blending effects and soften the colours.
Great ideas
Use Chipboard Flourishes to create texture paste dimension.

To get this effect on the title, paint unevenly with the black dabber paint in splotches so that there is still raw chipboard showing. Next spray over the letters with the Electric Blue smooch spritz. Once dry apply a coat of the azure smooch over the letters this gives the effect of a New Zealand Paua Shell.
