Watercoloured Free Spirit on Canvas

Good morning everyone!

DT Stephanie with you today to show you a bit of watercolouring on a canvas that I created with Bloom Girl Free Spirit and a couple of awesome products from Jamie's line at Prima.

List of supplies I used :
12x12 canvas
6x12 Stencil-Phrases, 655350980436
1 Color Bloom Spray (colour of your choice)
1.5" Thread Letters-LOVE, 655350980474
A4 Watercolor Paper Pad, 655350980269
Bloom - Cling Stamps - "Free Spirit", 655350980184
Sentiment from the Bloom Cling Stamp - Quentin, 655350980337
Bloom- Art Book,  655350980009
Large Doily
StazOn black ink
Watercolour pencils (Prima's and Inktense by Derwent)
Waterbrush pen
Two kraft tags
Brown ink for distressing
Coral Gelato stick from Faber-Castell
Tiny square stencil
Gel medium
Modeling Paste

Here are the steps to complete this project :

Start by putting a thick layer of modeling paste on your preferred word from the phrases stencil and some tiny squares, too.

Remove stencil and let dry complete. You can do this project over a couple of days, or you can use a heat gun to fasten the process.

Spray some Color Bloom here and there, moving the canvas to try having droplets. 

Remove two pages from your Art Book and gently tear them in large pieces. Stick the first pattern on your canvas by using gel medium.

Add your doily in the center, again glueing it with gel medium.

Ink both kraft tags and put on top of the doily. We're building layers!

Add thread letters wherever you want. If the letters try to move when handling the canvas, add a thin coat of gel medium to their back.

Stamp sentiment on two pieces.

Stamp your Bloom Girl on watercolour paper.

Start adding colours to her face first, by using Prima's hair and skin set. You can easily do the rest with your Inktense pencils or any medium you like, as long as she gets completely coloured,

Add some twine as a hairband, if you want.

Take the second page out of your Art Book, tear it, glue it on top of the rest.

Spray some Color Bloom again.

Place your Bloom Girl on the layers using either double-sided tape or 3D foam dots.

For a nice finishing touch, grab your gelato and rub some colour at the corners of the canvas.

Here's the look without the sentiment on.

And our finished piece!

I hope you liked this canvas, as it was totally out of my comfort zone. How about YOU do something different the next time you create, too? :-)
