Art Anthology and Altered Pages teamed up during October to offer some fantastic projects using their products. Below is a mini canvas series I did for the blog swap.
To get started, I covered three mini canvases with Art Anthology Gesso.
Next, I lightly misted a coat of Sandcastle Colorations.
I then gave two canvases a couple of coats of Lemon Tart and one canvas a couple of coats of Limeade Velvet. It gave me a nice, grungy look which is what I was going for.
I stamped the A, R, and T stamps from Altered Pages Alphapalooza stamp set, then mixed up a little modeling paste with Desire Velvet and stenciled on some dots using the Dot Matrix Stencil.
I wanted to embellish the canvases a little, go I gesso'd some Hexagon and Triangle Embedibles then gave them a coat of Evergreen Sorbet.
Using a small paintbrush, I painted the "A" with Kona Velvet, the "R" with Desire Velvet, and the "T" with Shamrock Velvet. I then added the hexagons and triangles to my canvases.
In order for the canvases to hang from each other, I snipped off pieces of an old necklace chain and attached them to my canvases using a mini stapler. I then added a hanger to the back of the "A" canvas and hung it on my wall over my work table.
