Roaring 20s Canvas

Hi everyone,  I'm participating with the Designer Craft Connection blog hop this month and we are working  with Plaid.  Plaid has an amazing array of paints and DIY Art Supplies.  

At Creativation, Plaid debuted one of their newest products - a mistable version of Mod Podge which works as a glue and sealer as one.  It's a water based formula that dries quickly.   Spritz Mod Podge on your project or use with a paintbrush. 

Spritz Mod Podge on a canvas.  Create texture by crumpling tissue paper and then place it on the spritzed canvas.  Don't smooth it out when adhering to the canvas, just pat it in place.  Allow to dry.

Use assorted colors of FolkArt Acrylic paints to paint the canvas. I used Fire Coral, Villa Green, Ocean View, Sunflower and Baby Pink.

Spritz with water allowing the colors to blend.

Use  the Long Script stamp from JFFStamps, along with Crafter's Companion stamps, using VersaFine Clair Ink to stamp randomly about the canvas.

To add feathers, I respritzd those areas of the canvas with Mod Podge, then placed the feathers.  Mod Podge really helped the feathers stay in place!  It also helped adhere a strand of pearls to the canvas.

Stamp, color and fussy cut the Crafter's Companion images and words and arrange them about the canvas.  Mix up the placement of the words for visual interest.  Also add some wood gears on the canvas.

When happy with the placement, I spritzed the words and adhered them to the canvas.  The ladies were adhered with foam adhesives for dimension.  

What do you think?
Please see what the other designers have created.  A full list can be found here.

Please note that just like a paint brush, Mod Podge Ultra Spray tops need to be cleaned after every use. If they aren't they will clog and become unusable.

Thanks for stopping by.
