Fun Friday with Pam

By The sea Canvas Technique
Lets have a little fun with an
inexpensive resist technique
~Assemble your supplies:
            ~A theme and a quote for your project
~Art Canvas or heavy paper ~Gesso White
~School quality white glue
~Faber Castell color sticks
~Water Pen ~Misting Bottle
~Glimmer Mist spray or similar product
 in Blue, Gold / Yellow Brown / Sand
~Mica flakes ~hemp string or cord for netting
Begin by prepping your canvas or paper with a healthy layer of Gesso. Let it dry completely {over night is best} I lightly sketched my lettering with a pencil. Then carefully over draw your letters with white glue. {the lettering will have to be larger than a normal lettering} This layer will also have to dry over night. If I do this again, I will try to free hand the glue because you can still see the pencil when it is dry.
Use your Faber color sticks to create a background.
I started with a pile of stones in one corner.
 The stones are from a tissue that
I separated and mod-podged into the corner.
Scribble your colors on, when you are happy with placement
apply a fine mist and allow the water to start blending the layers
Use a different brush for every
color to blend your canvas
 Use a heat gun to aid the drying time. At this point I added some mists
in coordinating colors to give the piece some shimmer
While I was waiting for things to dry, I worked on the mermaid. {Prima Mermaid}  I stamped her then cut close to the edges. Added Fragments of mica on top of a heavy layer of white glue. I moved the bits around with  the tip of a paper clip. Note Sickles would work for this project too. 
 This too had to dry over night.
 Then I quickly filled in her  body with copic color pens.
Once the canvas was dry, I picked the glue off of the lettering.
It may take a bit of time,
but I love how it turned out.

Made a fish net with hemp string and simple knots

Friday Raptor Alert!!

Time for some fun with the Scrapendipity girls
Meet my sweet grandson,
he is three in this photo
I wanted to echo the Raptor print in my layout.
So I grabbed what was at hand,
and it just happened to be a white art eraser.
 I sketched the print in pencil.
 Then I carefully carved around it with my blade
I spread some moulding paste, and allowed it to get
 slightly dry to the touch. Then I gently pressed
 the 30-D stamp into the paste
 I was well enough pleased with the end results.
 I used alcohol ink to shade the impressions.
Make sure you leave this to dry over night before mounting.
Drop on over to my blog to see the hidden journaling.
