Hello friends! Welcome back to another Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week we are taking a Leap Into the Unknown. What a great challenge theme!
I made an 8 x 8 in canvas board about daring to imagine new possibilities. I also used my brand new Distress Crayons as well as Tim Holtz Collage Media, and had lots of fun with them. The Distress Crayons are really fun and I am looking forward to using them more and playing around with different techniques. I took some step photos. You can easily use the techniques for a card or a scrapbooking layout instead.
I started out by stamping the pencil Blueprint stamp on a Pocket Card. I love the design of the Pocket Cards, and you can use them for many other things than pocket projects. For more ideas, check out this layout and my December Daily journal.
Colour the pencils with Distress Crayons. I used crayons from both Set 1 and Set 2. Use a paint brush with a little bit of water to blend them. I also added a shadow with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink.
I coated the canvas with gesso and then planned out my collage. Some of the pieces were sanded beforehand. Before starting to glue things down, I took a photo of the placement, so that I knew where to place all the pieces. Glue them down with Matte Collage Medium. I really liked this medium, it is thin, made no bubbles in the papers and, importantly, dried really fast.
'Dream' is cut from one of the journaling cards, and I also used a favourite Word Band.
