This week’s theme over Simon Says Stamp Monday Challange is TIC TAC TOE! Choose three elements from the table that our loved Maura made for us! and get your creative flow going!
I choose Blue/Stencil/Cardboard …. ugh can I be more predictable??? LOL!
You should know by now how much I love working with cardboard, I just love the texture, the feeling, the way it absorbs colors and gesso….so this project hit home!
I die cut the TAG with the Tim Holtz die and then I ripped off some edges to give it even more texture.
I covered the TAG with gesso, let it dry and then I added the first layer of blue color.
When the first layer of color was dry, I added some more color through a stencil and then I added even more texture with modelling paste. I let it dry and then it was simply and explosion of colors! I love working with distress paint, they have the perfect range of colors! Every shade blends with the other like no other paint!
When the layer of paint was dry – I decided to use a figure shape to contour this human figure, I was inspired by my friend Nika Rouss that lately she is rocking some awesome figure canvases!
..and of course i had to use a Tim Holtz Stickers — and I seriously hope he will be releasing a new set of words because dayum i love them so much. So Tim, if you are reading this… MORE STICKERS TNX BAI!
And that was my tag! I can’t wait to see what you guys will be creating! This week it should be SO MUCH FUN because we will see so many different type of project!
