Hey Creatives Rita Barakat here! Thanks for stopping today I am excited to sharing my project on this blog hop with Linnie Blooms! To enter in our giveaway, make sure to stop by each day and leave a comment. One winner will receive $50 in Design Memory Craft products. The giveaway will end on 9/27. Good luck!
In addition to Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products I used several Linnie Blooms Mixed Stitched Media Products: Canvas Flag, Sunflowers, Petal Flowers, banner and Leaves in two sizes.
When starting a project I always start with a little Gesso (especially for fabrics) - it makes it a lot easier to get fine details on the canvas. The Gesso stops the colors from bleeding and provides even coverage.
I did not use Gesso on the other areas like flowers, banners, leaves and the background; I did not mind bleeding on those areas. I used various Gelatos® Colors with water to color and layered the pieces to create this sweet banner. I used Texture Gems ™ for the words, (Tip * make sure you surface is dry before adding Texture Gems ™)
Here is a close up of one the sunflowers colored with Gelatos® Colors and those polka dots were made with Gesso.
And of course you can always add paper onto your project with a little Gel Medium!
Well I hope you enjoyed my project! Don't forget to be entered into our giveaway, make sure to stop by each day and leave a comment. One winner will receive $50 in Design Memory Craft products. The giveaway will end on 9/27.
