Oh Say Can You See

In honor of the upcoming 4th of July holiday I thought you would enjoy this adorable patriotic canvas that I discovered on the Want 2 Scrap Blog.

 Keely started out by painting a 10″ x 10″ canvas with black paint.  Next she inked the edges & began layering the patterned papers using the  “Pride” Collection by Authentique . Keely stamped & pieced together the adorable girl image with the Prima Mixed Media Doll Stamp by Julie Nutting.  Her skin was colored with Copic markers.


Cut out a large star from cardboard.  The star was painted with DecoArt Dimensional Effects Texture Paste & stamped with Heartfelt Creations–Burlap Background texture stamp.  After allowing the paste to dry, Keely inked over the design.  


 The finishing touches were the beautiful Want2Scrap Silver Rhinestone Swirls & inked Want2Scrap Chubba Bubba – Corrugated Alphabet Letters.

Love all the wonderful texture that the Want 2 Scrap Bling & corrugated letters brought to the project.

My hope is that you will be fearless when it comes to your creativity, to be brave enough to try new things & most important to have fun with your art.

Thanks for the nice visit & I look forward to seeing you back soon.
