Prima Home Decor Canvas with video tutorial

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about Home decor.
This week we are creating something to decorate our homes. It could be a canvas, a wall hanging, a candle holder, coaster, whatever you like! We will be looking forward to seeing what you make!

We are showcasing PRIMA PRODUCTS this week. You don’t have to use them to join in, but if you have them we would love to see them used.

It's been ages since I made a canvas. And this challenge is perfect for making one. I started creating a background with the Prima Honeycomb stencil and Texture Paste mixed with Prima Opal Magic Alchemy paint. With Color Shine Tropical Teal and White I gave it even more color and some drippage.


With a number of Prima stamps: Checkered, Jagged Lines and Iron Orchid and some custom stamps, I've given the background a little more interest. With a bunch Vintage Sunrise Sunset Trinkets I've made a collage and painted it white with Gesso. Next I sprayed it with Tropical Teal and applied a layer of Opal Magic Alchemy paint after the spray was dry.


I've made the Chipboard pieces Prima The Archivist less bulky by removing lots of the chipboard. This way they are more integrated with the background. I then applied a layer of Opal Magic Alchemy paint over it.

For the whole proces from start to finish see the video below.



To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers.
