This is my fourth canvas using the Artistcellar Sacred Heart Series of stencils. This final stencil is called "Immaculate". If you'd like to see how this small canvas was made I have provided a tutorial. So, take a few minutes, sit down, grab a cuppa and take a look at the process.
|Burlap canvas measuring 6" by 6" called "Immaculate"|
I laid the stencil called "Immaculate" on top of the panel and started making an outline of the parts of the stencil with a Stabilo All pencil, this will provide shading later.
Now that my pencil marks are in place I began applying the Broken China DI with an applicator through the stencil. This activates the Stabilo pencil and changes the color to a gray blue shade.
I sewed a little here and there around the edges of the canvas, leaving the threads long for now, I'll trim them later.
I added some stamping with Memento London Fog ink and StazOn Jet Black ink. I applied water to the edges of the panel to break them down and age them. Then I used a distressing tool to tear the edges and then inked them with the StazOn Black ink.
I wanted to have a small punch of red on this canvas, like the others. With that in mind I drizzled Lady Bug red "irRESISTibles" on the tops of the roses and let it dry. I glued the gears and cogs on with a strong adhesive then added Distress Stickles into the open areas of the cogs.
The finished canvas is now ready to be adhered to the burlap canvas. I trimmed the threads to the desired length and it is done. Now I have a completed set of these Steampunked Hearts!
Thanks for joining me today, I have had a lot of fun working on this series with these stencils. Next week I will share some more stenciling ideas with you. I hope to see you next Tuesday, take care! Hugs~ Renee xx
