A Work In Progress


Well, it is Wednesday again and I am thrilled to bring you something a little different this week as promised. In the first photo you will see most of the tools I used to create a piece of wall art. It is a little intimidating to start with such a large piece of blank! I first had to decide on design so I taped off my first section and stamped my images.


After the stamped images were done I started coloring in with PanPastels. These are a great medium that blend really well and can be bright and vibrant or soft and subtle. I applied the color with a soft palette applicator.


I continued on sometimes stamping first and other times after. I then cut out some pears and ran them through the CuttleBug. I then ran the pastel colors over the tops of the deeply embossed images. I love my CuttleBug!!! I attached the pears with a dries clear glue.


I continued with the same process until I came to my last area. I cut out a larger pear and embossed it and I also stamped the "pears" stamp and tore it out. I added some final touches of pastel to make my embossed image pop a little more. I then painted the edges of the canvas with acrylic paint. I plan to embellish a bit more just not sure how or with what I am going to finish this piece off. It has been fun making this one! Hope you enjoy!


Happy Creating...Don't forget to visit my blog and take part in the contest!

I loved you article and I learned some things; always like to learn something new. However I thinnk you should have mentioned that the masking tape you use should be drafting tape or very light tack masking tape or you will tear you paper.
Also would have liked to know where you got your beautiful stamps. I have one but love those peas\rs and the definitions tamp.

Thanks for all the great comments. I used PanPastels by Colorfin. Most of the stamps are by Stampers Anon. A couple are by Great Impressions as well.
