Hi everyone. My name is Nancy Wethington and I am today's guest blogger on the CI Splash of Color blog.
Cheryl introduced me to the Splash of Color array of products and I was immediately hooked.
The paints, metallics and modeling creams opened up a whole new world for me.
After grabbing a canvas, I decided to mix my new love of these paints with my addiction for inchies/betwinchies.
Inchies are 1" x 1" squares that you can paint, decorate, draw on, paper
and otherwise embellish to your heart's content.
You can do the same with betwinchies only on a slightly larger surface: 1.5" x 1.5"
I opted for Splash of Color Luminarte Acrylic Silks for the base.
Using a large flat brush, I painted in one direction and began layering the colors. This paint is so unique, you can layer colors over colors and you will never create a muddy look!
You can easily achieve the most beautiful blending with these water based paints.
And look at the sheen!
Next, for the background, a Crafters Workshop stencil and Viva Colour Pearl Modeling Cream were the medium of choice.
The Splash of Color Modeling Creams come in a variety of colors and are so smooth!
Once again, a lovely shimmer and a quick dry!
Using Luminarte Twinkling H2O's, I was able to add bits of color here and there.
The adorable little pots contain so much color and shine!
After cutting some heavy chipboard for the betwinchies,
I counted on the Splash of Color Mixed Media Travel Collage Pack to decorate.
These images are perfect for tiny collage work as they're detailed in a small pattern.
Using a template helps plan the images:
Wanting to add color to the betwinchies,
I once again turned to the Splash of Color Silks for the background
as well as the Splash of Color Luminarte Twinkling H2O's for the detail work.
The Twinkling H2O's are also water based and work beautifully right from their cute little jars.
All dressed up and ready to go:
And here's the finished project:
Adding carpenter rulers to the edges finished it off:
I hope you enjoyed this altered canvas with betwinchies. It was a surely a pleasure guest blogging today.
Thank you Cheryl and Splash of Color.
