One of my favorite products to play around with is Sticky Back Canvas. The texture is fabulous and there are so many things you can do with it. The canvas can be inked, stamped, sprayed, printed on or painted on.
For this project I decided to try a masked and painted background. A great way to alter your Sticky Back Canvas is to start by adhering it to a Non-Stick Craft Sheet. You can mix your paint right on the sheet and protect your work surface and then simply wipe it clean when you are done. Before adhering your canvas, I like to distress the edges to get that fabric look with a Paper Distresser.
I first painted the canvas with a light coat of Landscape Green Studio Paint and thinned it out with some water spritzed in with a Mini Mister.
Here's what it looks like dry. I love the soft look and the beautiful texture. The Tim Holtz Mini Cirque Alpha stamps are a really cool font and I love the style of these stamps. I can't wait to use them again and try out all the possibilities. They are stamped on this project in Jet Black Archival Ink. I really love this ink for a deep solid image and for stamping on difficult surfaces such as this canvas.
I was really excited to find that these Basic Grey Bling It On Alpha Series Rub-ons transferred so well onto the painted canvas. These are fabulous rub-ons and I love how Basic Grey coordinates the rhinestones for each sheet on a clear plastic over each rub-on for easy placement.
To add a really unique touch to your embellishments, try altering them to make them your own. Here one of the rub-on flowers is placed onto a Canvas Button by Prima.
Have fun playing with your crafting products and I hope this will give you a few new ideas to try. Thanks for stopping by the CLASSroom and have a wonderful weekend!
