Snazzy Design Team Project By Gillian ....

Good Morning everyone, Gillian here with our new design team kit for the month ahead. This month we have been challenged to create our own canvas using the Gallerie Wrap Canvas Kit.

This kit allows you to creat your own custom canvas and you can find a "how to" on Youtube HERE (have to say wish I had found this first before commencing assembly lol).
The Random Comment Winner is No 1 which tallies with ....

..... Andrew's Stamping Pad. Congrats Andrew please contact Snazzy's with your details.

For my canvas yes you've probably guessed correct which route I have taken .... Vintage, Grunge, Distress, Tim Holtz (all of my favourite things).

To start with I painted the outer edges of the canvas using Distress Paint (Black Soot), next I applied some Ideaology Tissue Wrap Paper with Ranger's Glue N Seal (Matte) before randomly stamping the "Gear" image from the Tim Holtz (Time Travelers) set using Archival Ink (Sepia). I have also built up the layers of colour using Distress Paint (Rusty Hinge, Walnut Stain & Weathered Wood), knocking back with a wet wipe for a more subtle effect.

I then stamped various images using Archival Ink (Jet Black) from the following sets -  Time Travelers, Ringmaster Blueprint, Way With Words onto manilla cardstock.

The "hand" and "admit one ticket" have been inked with Distress Ink (Walnut Stain).

Both gentleman (Wyatt & Doc ... yes I have named them!) have been coloured using Distress Markers (Rusty Hinge, Weathered Wood & Vintage Photo). The words "Courage Is Being ... were stamped onto Kraft cardstock, cut out and edged with Black Soot Distress Marker. *Note the pocket watch ... I added one of the small epoxy stickers from the Sunrise/Sunset Prima collection*.

More layers using the newly released Ideaology Remnant Rub Ons which I adore.  I hope you have enjoyed this project, Lesley will be here next week sharing her project using the above kit.

To be in with a chance of winning a Snazzy prize, simply leave a comment HERE on the first post of the month.

Until next time .....
