Unleash yourself

Hello fellow Crafters,

Today is the 1st of July, wow half a year gone already ! This is my project for the Roc Nicholas Design Team. It is a little canvas :

The canvas is 18 x 18 cm or about 6 x 6 inches. I used a stencil and modelling paste to put the doily on and adhered a few bits of dictionary paper to the canvas as well. I then used my CaranD'ache water-soluble crayons to put the colour on; I just scribbled them on and then used my fingers to spread the colour around. I used Faber Castel Big Brush markers around the edges and here and there to accentuate the doily. I then used the Heart Vine stamp around the edges and coloured it in with the Big Brush markers also. I the stamped the 'Unleash yourself' straight on the canvas and used a white paint pen and some more of the crayons to colour the letters. Lastly I stamped the Flying bird on white card stock twice, coloured them and adhered them to the canvas with gel medium.  

I used the following 'Roc Nicholas' stamps which are available HERE:
