Hopping with DecoArt

Today is the final day of the Stampendous® hop with DecoArt® and, as always, I’ve had a fun time!  I've done another small canvas for today using DecoArt's® Media Fluid Acrylics™ line of paints and one of my favorite stamps from the Stampendous Pink Your Life line, Whisper Birthday Rubber Stamp, along with the sentiment stamp, Heart of Friendship.  This particular sentiment really speaks to me because I have so many friends scattered around the world.  There are some I’ve never even met in person, yet, I still love them dearly!

Here's what I used to create this canvas:

Spectrum Noir™Markers by Crafter’s Companion
Artist's Loft™ Necessities™ Canvas Board
Miscellaneous Brushes

Here’s what I did to create this canvas:

Stamp your image on mixed media white paper.
Color the stamped image with your medium of choice and cut it out.  
Mix the teal hue with the white and paint the canvas three quarters of the way from the top and down to create your sky.  If needed, add just a drop of turquoise like I did to give it a little deeper color.
Paint your grass on with the green gold paint, as you build your layers you get your light and dark areas.
Using the white paint and a round brush, just add some wispy clouds.
Adhere your stamped and colored image to the canvas using matte medium.
Once you’re sure everything is good and dry, stamp your sentiment.
This was another super simple canvas to create!  I love making these little canvases.  It’s such a fun way to showcase your stamps and just hang them around your house or sit them on little easels.  Then, when one catches your eye, you can’t help but smile.
