Mixed Media - Sin City Stamps - Design Team - NO MORE WHINING


Hello All - Sin City Stamps Friends.



We just returned from a mini vacation to Lancaster PA. & Hersey Park.

In one of the store I saw this cute handmade sign.
As soon as I saw that finger - I was like… What that's a great Design Team blog theme - and I can totally make this.. 

So here's my take at it… I finished and put it up on my Facebook page - and sold 2 of them…  Next group I make will be a little different - but I just love out his one came out.


I started out with a 4x12 Canvas from Michaels



Then started to play with my fingers… Adding different colors of Daler Rowing & Liquitex Liquid Paints (See list below for the different colors used)



I then pulled out my Sin City Stamp - Stencil - Clock Stencil

I used some Glitter Mist sprays (silver) and sprayed it around the canvas.


For the Month of April we are working with EC Crafts  they supplied us with these Gold Stickers.


Being that I'm not a fan of Gold - but that these stickers are so pretty - I pulled out my White Gesso


Once that was almost dry - I put drops of Adirondack Inks  using my finger to spread them and play with the colors.


I got it to the colors I like and let it dry.. You want to use a hot blower - but don't...


Jut pull them off - you might need to pull out some of the detail little pieces - I just used a scissor and they came out no problem.

I then added those on the canvas and then used Gel Medium to glue it down.


Pulled out the black ink and my favorite Sin City Finger Stamp


I then pulled out a bag of brown letter I have had since (NO IDEA HOW LONG) i've had them.
I used Gel Medium and just stuck them down.


Below is what it looks like once they are all mounted down.



I added the hand written $5.00 ...


I started using my sharpie pen to outline the letters.  but half way through it I didn't like how it was looking so I pulled out some back acrylic paint and a thin paint brush and started working around them.



The below photo shows the difference in just the pen and the paint brush.
