December stamp of the month blog hop

Welcome to this month's blog hop featuring the stamp set special care. This hop is a circle, so keep hopping til you get to where you started.  You should be coming from { Beth Naumann}.   Next in this hop is { Krista Hershberger}.   If you get lost along the way, you can find the whole list of bloggers {Here}

This is one of our 6 x 6 canvas'.  I painted it yellow with white acrylic paint dyed with honey reinker. The texture on the canvas is made using this technique.  I cut the overlay from pg 62 of the Artbooking cartridge at 6 in.  Then I used it as a stencil with texture paste, I had MS white texture paste.  As a wonderful mistake, it dried with a yellow tint to it.  I love it.  But it takes forever to dry.  The paper is from babycakes.  I wanted the grey banner to be vellum, but I didn't have any.  I was going to buy some, but I stopped at best buy first and got so ticked at them that I forgot to go next door to michaels and buy some.  That's a whole other story. A trick to get the washi tape to stay on the canvas, I used liquid glass.  It's a little hard to tell in the pic, but I scattered a few bitty sparkles inbetween the texture.  Another mistake I made, not so lucky on this one, was I forgot to double check where the hanger was before I added the paste.  Now I have to move the hanger, looks easy enough to do.   

I hope you enjoyed this project and all the rest you will see on this hop.
