Following up on Becky's Technique Tuesday this week of using masks and the Airbrushing article I did for Ellen's InTouch Newsletter this past weekend, I've combined the two techniques to create an airbrushed canvas wall hanging!
I used Tim Holtz' Alphabet Ransom mask set to spell out Live and Love on my 4" Canvas Frames. Then I accented the bottoms of the canvases with Tim's Borderline mask. These clear "plastic" masks are easy to peel and stick or reposition as needed:
I started airbrushing the tops of the canvases with Copic R89:
I graduated the colors of markers, using (in this order) R83, R85, E31 & E57 to airbrush the rest of the canvas. As a final step, I thought the Live & Love were a little too bright white, so I used E59 to splatter airbrush (using the brush end of the marker will give this affect) over the top. In hindsight, I might have omitted this step! You can see the difference in color where I airbrushed over the Live & Love vs. the border at the bottom, where I didn't.
