Chill Out Simple Watercolored Canvas

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Canvas Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Chill Out Tim Holtz Watercolor



Welcome back for the new challenge, my dear friends. Our theme this week is CHILL OUT - The weather is quite chilly at the Simon HQ and probably in your city, too. You can also choose to chill out at the beach if you prefer warmer climes. You may interpret this theme however you want. 

I was relaxed and inspired to create a simple painting on a canvas with Sakura Koi 
Watercolors and decorated it Tim Holtz Big Chat Stickers. The color scheme on this canvas really chills me out.

After painting on the canvas with watercolors and water brushes, I added the sentiments using Tim Holtz Big Chat stickers layered with the burlap.

Some metal embellishments were attached using Tombow Mono Glue. I also used Tim Holtz Industrious Stickers as the frame on the canvas.

Mixed Media Square Canvas

Hi, my lovely friends, welcome back for the new challenge this week. I hope your new year is off to a great start. At Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our theme is "BE SQUARE". You can create a square card or anything use "square" elements. 

I was inspired to create a mini square canvas with Prima Flowers Grungy Butterflies and Tim Holtz Distress Paints

On this 4" X 4" mini canvas, I started applying the modeling paste to create the texture, and some Distress Paints for the background colors. After the paints were dry, I added the crackle paint for the crackle effect.

The metal embellishments were attached on the canvas using Tombow Mono Glue, colored with Distress Paints and distress with Faber-Casgtell Big Brush Pens.

I really love the beautiful metal elements so I added two butterflies and a word band that were colored with Distress Paints on this canvas.
