This is Zinia here with you today. As the holidays approach I thought it would be fun to share with you a slightly Christmas themed project that can also work all year round.
Instead of working in my art journal, I decided to use a flat canvas board. This way I can hang it on the wall as decoration or gift it to someone for the holidays.
I started by stamping a flower image from the Penny Black “Winter Joy” set. I used Versafine Onyx Black ink because it’s waterproof and I can add wet media on top of it.
To add some more interest and heaviness on that side, I also used a floral stencil and added some of the yummy Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Spun Sugar.
Once the paste was relatively dry, I started adding color. I kept my color palette simple using only reds and warm yellow shades. I let the colors drip and blend on their own without interfering a lot.
When everything was dry, I used another stencil and sprayed some more reds on the top to help with the balance. Then I used the excess paint on the stencil and stamped it on the opposite side of the canvas.
From the same stamp set, I used the sentiment “Peace and Joy” at the bottom of the canvas. To finish it off, I sprinkled some white ink splatters all over the project.
Take a look at my video for a step by step view of how this wall hanging was created.
