Trying New Products...

I have been working on this canvas for 2 weeks now - coming back to it, thinking about it, wondering what to add to it, what to take away. The inspiration came from my Tattered Angels shimmer mist and a brick stamp from Prima. I first designed the backdrop by spraying it with Seafoam shimmer mist and then applied the stamp with Espresso Adirondack ink. I know I wanted to use my new Prima paper and flower ensemble, and my new birdcage stamp from Basic Grey. The rest was undetermined.

What I discovered in this journey:
  1. I love the Ranger acrylic paint dabbers! I used POOL colour to paint my canvas sides and to add some variation to the edges of the canvas and to the brick pattern. I also used it on the clip, on my chipboard #2, on the torn paper edges, and a little on the grungeboard flourish.
  2. I like my new Basic Grey stamps (bird cages)! Although I applied Ranger Glossy Accents and it warped my paper, but in the end, I was able to bend it back in shape and pop up with foam.
  3. Flower soft is versatile. It adds so much texture and can be used anywhere! I used cream coloured flower soft under a few flourishes.
  4. I love Seafoam Tattered Angels Shimmer Mist and I want to spray everything!
