Hazel and Ruby Canvas Hop
Hello Everyone!! Today the Copic Oz, Xpress It and Inspiration Lane designers have teamed up to have a fun and fabulous Blog Hop! Each of us have been given various products to create a Hazel and Ruby canvas that represents us - I don't know about you, but I know I can't wait to see what everyone has created today! Not only are there some really fun projects using some of our favourite products - the best part is that you have over ten opportunities to win!
So, what did I make??? I was sent a canvas, some Hazel and Ruby Stencil Masks and some Hazel and Ruby Washi Tape.
I found several scraps of paper and arranged them on the canvas, then added some X-press It Triple Tac to attach the paper to the canvas and then added another layer over the top.
Then I've added the Hazel and Ruby Stencil-Masks from Everyday Shapes and Brooklyn Alpha where I wanted them on the canvas. I've also added pieces of Hazel and Ruby Washi Tape at various locations on the canvas.
Then I've toned down the paper by adding some Gesso.
I've used my Copic Airbrush System and a variety of Copic Markers to add colour in both blocks of colour and over stencils for a bit of interest.
Then I've added some texture paste through a stencil.
I've continued to add more colour and airbrushing as well as a little stamping around the edges.
Then I removed my masks - don't forget these are reuseable, so make sure you put them back on the Hazel and Ruby sheet for your next project!
And then I've added some outlining and glued some buttons and a piece of coloured corrugated cardboard using X-press It Power Tac.
Then I thought the flowers could use a little extra 'something', so I've added some dots of Molotow Paint Pen around them.
I thought I was done, but then decided the flowers needed a little picket fence to peek out from behind!
So how does this express me? For a start, Blue is my favourite colour and I particularly love blue gingham. Secondly I love daisies - in fact I had them for my wedding! There are 3 flowers that represent my three beautiful kids and how I'm watching them grow, for now they are in primary school....next year my eldest is off to high school! And lastly, I'm inspired every day by flowers, colours, shapes and textures to CREATE!
