While I had this stamp set out I made a couple of cards too - stamping onto tissue paper before adding to a grungy background.

Today I am over at A Vintage Journey with a tutorial for these mini books by Tando Creative. The process I am going through is same I used on my Canvas a couple of weeks ago... if you missed it you can see it here.
I made two little books this time - similar but not quite the same colours!

Inspirational quotes canvas for A Vintage Journey

Canvas with Dina Wakley paints and Tim Holtz stamp sets - Perspective and Theories
Hi all. Today I am hosting the new challenge at A Vintage Journey. The theme this month is Get Sentimental. Time to use those words - be they poems, quotes or other sentiments.

My project is a 10x8 inch box canvas which I added texture to with paper/card scraps and texture paste before adding lots of wonderful colour with Dina Wakely paints. I am not going to go into lots of details on the process as I am back at AVJ in 2 weeks with a tutorial where I will be detailing the same process but on a much smaller scale!

All my background words are from Tim Holtz Theories stamp set - stamped onto tissue paper before adding to the canvas.

Tim Holtz Butterfly Duo is always a go to item for me! Painted with the same paints and used an oil pastel over the embossed areas for contrast.

Another favourite for my main Sentiment! Tim Holtz Perspective stamp set - embossed with ink and white powder over a painty background scrap.

If you haven't already come from there - do head over to A Vintage Journey for lots more inspiration!

I would like to play along at:
