First time with distress markers, took some
getting used to trying to blend. I have included
the ones I used below in the recipe section :-)
I covered the canvas in tissue paper that had a music
design all over it.
While the canvas dried I painted the frame (which is from France
if anyone wants to know the details just comment and I shall find the link. They
do beautiful frames and the postage over here is really cheap.
I painted it with Fresco paint then used a crackle medium.
After it dried I painted it over with snowflake then
when that dried I lightly sanded.
Next I added a watered down coating of snowflake
Then I added some colour with Derwent inktense blocks.
I used these so when I went over it again, because they are water colours
they will blend with the snowflake in areas.
Before adding snowflake I stamped some script
When I stamp with script on backgrounds I never use a stamping block
instead I curve it in my hands.
I did drip it at one stage which you can see, so I will just cover that up
Now for some snowflake.
To protect everything so far I added a matt medium
Next some Kroma Crackle in areas
After that dries some grunge paste through masks for some more texture
While that is drying I stamped on water colour card with my image Elizabeth and
painted used my distress markers.
Close up. I only coloured where I would be using.
Next stamped and embossed with white the flowers.
Here you can see a bird but I didn't use it. I have wanted to try this
technique for awhile and after I used the distress markers I was well impressed.
Close up of all the wonderful texture.
I wanted a bit more colour so decided to use some sprays
(I ended up with cosmic shimmer and perfect pearl mists shown in recipe below)
Close up before all the bits were added :-)
I hope you enjoyed the step by step, any questions please don't hesitate in emailing or commenting. Thank you so much for joining me today.
Happy Crafting :-)
