This week's design team products are right up my street - paint and canvas YuMMY!! The trouble was, with sorting out my holiday I didn't have as long to play with these as I wanted. I'm home later today though so watch out for a canvas project this week :)
I have to say, these paints were absolutely beautiful to work with. They have no filler and are chock full of pigment so the colours are really rich :) I decided to paint a little cardboard box with the cobalt turquoise hue, highlighting with yellow ochre and burnt umber through some sequin waste:
I also painted a small piece of studio cloth [canvas] at the same time. I have plenty left to work on something else when I get back from my hols!!
The idea was to layer with papers coated in beeswax. However, I think my beeswax got contaminated with some embossing powder as it now has a distinct shine!! (now I know why I need to buy a separate project pan lol, or put my beeswax in a metal cake wrapper!)
I have to say though, that the colours look beautifully rich through the beeswax.embossing powder combo! I layered text and tissue paper printed with a map image. The tiny watch parts were added at the end.
My thirteen year old daughter has her eye on this little box so I think it will soon be filled with her little treasures :)
The other USAQ DT members all have projects on their blogs so hop on over for a feast to the eyes :)
