StencilGirl & Lindy's Gang Blog Hop Day 3 :) :) :)

Hello Hello & Welcome! :) :) :) 

 Welcome to the

Blog Hop! 

Team StencilGirl® and the Lindy’s Gang Design Team are getting creative with 
Lindy’s Gang products and StencilGirl® stencils! 

And Mary Beth Shaw is hopping along with us!!! 

It is now Day 3!!! 
Have you been loving all of the totally amazing inspiration so Far?! THREE DAYS 
with new projects EVERY day! 

Today I would like to share with you a decorated canvas pencil case. To create the finish on this canvas case I have created a resist embossed pattern and highlighted it with magicals.

Below are the fabulous StencilGirl and Lindy's Gang products I used to create my project :)


Lindy's Gang Frozen Jack Frost Starburst Spray

Mermaid Seashells Shimmer Magicals [Azure Sea Asters]

Purely White Embossing Powder

I have created a few photo collages to help demonstrate how I created the finish on the canvas pencil case.

Begin by sealing the front panel of canvas with a coat of white gesso.
When this is dry apply clear or white embossing ink over stencil onto the canvas.
Apply embossing powder, shake off excess.
Heat set embossing powder with heat tool.

Mist the embossed surface with Starburst spray.
Sprinkle on a light coat of Magicals powder along top edge.
Gently mist the powder allowing it to dribble down the embossed surface.
Then with your finger spread and blend the magicals powder with the mist over the embossed surface of the canvas.

Using another piece of canvas recreate the same stencil pattern using the Starbust mist as depicted above.
Remove stencil and whilst mist is still wet sprinkle on some more magicals powder.

Heat dry/set the magicals and starbust spray pattern, then cut out the centres of the flowers.
Adhere/glue small crochet flowers to patterned canvas in the centre of the stenciled flowers.
Then glue the cut out canvas circles to the centre of the crochet flowers.

Mix a very small amount of the magicals powder with some water and use it to colour the white crochet flowers.
Then using a wet baby wipe blend and tone the colour.
When this has dried stitch on some large coordinating buttons with embroidery cotton to the centre of the flowers.

And here are 2 close up images :)
