I created a background on my mini canvas using Violet and Ultramarine Blue Color Bursts pigment powder. I started by misting the canvas with water then I tapped out a tiny bit of each powder. As the color started to develop I tilted the canvas back and forth. I also used a wet paintbrush to move the water color around a little bit. I even had fun with my heat gun, blowing the color around a bit more before finally drying the canvas.
I used an adhesive alpha to add the word "bloom".
Using a baby wipe, I gently patted the area over and around the letter stickers, removing a layer of color.
When I peeled the letters off, the darker original color reveals the word.
Next I applied purple ink through the Mosaic stencil from Rebecca Baer Designs.
Love the result!! Now it is ready for some pictures and embellishments!
As I was working on this canvas, I found that I used way too much water and Color Burst color! I used a paper towel to wipe the excess up off of my craft mat and quite frankly I decided all of that gorgeous color was to good to waste!
I used a die to cut out lots of flowers so I could layer them together...
...and added an 8mm Orange Rhinestone from Want2Scrap in the center!
The final touch is a small piece of the Fancy That Bling Border from Want2Scrap and added that to the canvas!
