I don’t really consider myself an “artist” per se and I can’t draw to save my life so creating beautiful art with rubber stamps is what I do instead! I found these little 4 X 6 canvases at the Dollar Tree and bought a bunch to play with! They’re the perfect size for my favorite Jumbo Poinsettia stamp by Stampendous! Sadly, it’s long retired, so you have to hunt it down on ebay or etsy. I’ve created a series of these to sell at the holiday craft fairs this season! I especially love the lavender and yellow background of this one! I coated the canvas with a layer of white craft paint which made a smoother surface to work on, and heat-embossed the image in black. I used my Gansai Tambi watercolor paints to do all of these.
I actually painted this one first and I forgot to cover the surface with white craft paint first but it still worked! I do rather like the texture! Of course, I had to add black and white paint spatters!
I love the dark background on this canvas and how it makes the red blossom really stand out! I used a white Posca paint pen to add highlights.
Another gorgeous red poinsettia, this time on a soft golden background.
This was the last canvas I painted for the craft show; I decided to try painting a white blossom which of course, is more than just white! In hind sight, perhaps it’d be more true to life if I’d had a photograph in front of me to copy! I’m happy with it anyway and will be interested to see if these sell at the craft show! Thank you so much for visiting!
this tutorial to help show you how I created this beautiful canvas. Be warned! I am super comfortable in the world of stamping, but this is only my second Video Creation, so please be patient with me!
