Beautiful Mind

Good Evening All – something very different from me this week 🙂

I decided to have a go at a canvas – eek!  I’m going to be attending a Hels Sheridan workshop at Daisy’s on Sunday, so thought it would be a good idea if I played around a little beforehand, and I have literally had everything out in my workshop 🙂

I’ve used the current Mojo Monday Sketch challenge as the basis to work from and I wanted to use the “Beautiful Mind” stamp set from Indigoblu, as the saying about talking to yourself is sooooo appropriate for me 😀

So, I covered the whole of the base canvas with Scattered Straw distress ink, then put a clock and cogs mask over the top and inked through with Wild Honey.  I’ve then stamped a crackle effect using Rusty Hinge and spritzed with copper Cosmic Shimmer mist.

The design papers are all from the Basic Grey Manila paper pad and I’ve inked them up to match the base canvas.  On two, I stamped and embossed the images with Coffee Bean Brilliance ink and clear embossing powder and on the other two I used my flitter glue and flakes.

  The leaves are the Petite Vinery Dies by Sue Wilson, the glass vials have been filled with some sand (of which I have loads at the moment, where I’ve been working in my garden), the hand has been stamped onto shrink plastic and then I added the couple of brass trinkets for good measure!

I think it’s OK?  It’s been quite fun actually, getting everything out, having a play and getting mucky 🙂

Anyway, I shall post my workshop make after Sunday so you can see how I got on, but in the meantime thanks for dropping by
