Canvas trio for August Craft Stamper Take It Make It challenge

Hello my Friend,

So happy you stopped by in my blog!

I wanted to show you my project I made for August Craft Stamper Take It Make It challenge. August is a 'Take A Technique' month, as TIMI challenge is alternating between 'Take A Stamp', and 'Take A Technique'. August technique is 'Pens And Pencils'. In other words it's time to take out your favourite colouring markers, sketching pens or watercolour pencils and use them on any type of crafting project. Remember that there must be some real stamping somewhere on your project; this still is a stamping challenge :).

Our lovely sponsor for August is Chocolate Baroque

The prize this month is this wonderful plate of Artistic Afirmations:

Something to wish for, isn't it! For more details please follow this link. Challenge guidelines can be read here.

My aim was to use these lovely Stampin'Up stamps and make a simple card. Maybe even in CAS style; to stamp and colour the images and to create a simple inked background.

Well, I got a little carried away. The problem was that all these little animals were just too cute. I could not decide which one to use for my simple card, as I wanted to include them all! When trying to do that the card front got too crowded, and I had to think of something else.

I remembered that I had a pile of small canvases in my stash. Something I had purchased on sale a while back. They were just perfect for my Woodland project!

The backgrounds are painted with acrylic paints. In order to add a little bit of texture I glued down some embroidery thread, using gel medium as my glue.
The images are stamped on plain white cardstock, coloured with Promarkers, and cut out.

I used many stamped and coloured trees on each canvas, and wanted to make them look bit more interesting by stamping a grid pattern on them.

The canvases are attached together with ring screws and pieces of metal chain.

Such a fun and easy project to make! And an example to show you how the creative flow may easily take you to a completely different direction than you originally planned!
Wonder if this has ever happened to you?
