Bad Bears

Hello everyone,

I'll start with wishing you all a Happy New Year ! I hope it will bring you everything you hope for and more !

For the first AALL & Create project of the year I have decorate a small canvas board (8" x 8").

And here is how:

I started with painting my canvas board. I used two shades of yellow by PaperArtsy. I used my fingers to paint, so liberating ! lol

I marked out where the paint brush was going to go and added some orange paint drips and splatters. I also used this fab stamp by Olga Heldwein to add some interest to the canvas. I used different coloured Archival Inks for this. 

I also used blue Distress Oxide Ink with the same stamp. Next I used this stencil, which is based on the stamp I used, with modelling paste, just using one of the circles to mimic the circles from the stamp. 

Time for the bears to come out, I used the 'Bad Bears' stamp as a background stamp and stamped it randomly around the canvas with black Archival Ink. 

These were coloured with Copic, easily my favourite colouring medium.

And here is the finished canvas with the products I have used. I added some glossy accents to the orange paint on the brush and the canvas to make it look like wet paint ! 

I hope you'll try to make something too ! This would look great in a children's bedroom or something. I have used :

Stamp set #56 - Vintage Graffiti by Olga Heldwein
Stencil #47 - Circle of life by Olga Heldwein (based on the #56 stamp)
and of course:
Stamp set #157 - Bad Bears by Louise Nelson

  1. What a delightfully fun canvas, Corrie - I'm grinning from ear to ear. My son, Barry (nicknamed Bear) would love this one. :D
