Inspirational quotes canvas for A Vintage Journey

Canvas with Dina Wakley paints and Tim Holtx 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:

  6. Delicious colours and such beautiful depth to the layers. I love the pastel highlighting on the butterflies, and those clever frames leading the eye around the canvas, meeting all those wonderful words on the way. Looking forward to more how-to details later in the month.
