StencilGirl & Canvas Corp!

This month StencilGirl Products is collaborating with Canvas Corp Brands to show unique ways to combine StencilGirl stencils with a variety of Canvas Corp Brands surfaces and Tattered Angels Paint Kits!

Be sure to check out the details at the end of this post on how you can win a prize package
​worth over $50 in goodies from StencilGirl Products and Canvas Corp Brands!Hi, Mary Nasser here!
I’ve been having a blast combining StencilGirl stencils with products from Canvas Corp Brands!

My favorite new supply, hands-down, was the Tattered Angels Naturally Aged Kit in Turquoise!
I say "was" because I literally could not stop using it, until I used it all up!!
These are just some of the cool backgrounds I created in my art journal!
The directions were clear and easy to follow, yet the results varied each time in fascinating ways!

I gessoed all of these pages white first and created additional texture with white gesso, too. 
I also loved that I could control the spray to keep it contained in my art journal (rather than on my studio table)!
It was mesmerizing watching the paints from this kit combine to make magic!
Below, I'm sharing an art journal spread I created on one of these backgrounds:
For this spread, I also sprayed a kraft tag and corrugated cardboard from Canvas Corp with the turquoise kit!
I stenciled the word "fly" from Carolyn Dube's Now Is The Time onto a small piece of black gessoed paper and glued this onto the corrugated piece. In addition, I adhered two globe images I created in Nancy Curry's Transformations workshop with  It's a Small World Latitude and It's a Small World Longitude.

I added layers of Canvas Corp burlap to create a contrast in texture against the background surface.
I used Let's Go 1 on the kraft tag with one of my favorite techniques: using a Jet Black Ranger Archival ink pad and a fingertip sponge daubers to stencil words, then removing the stencil and connecting the bridges of the letters with my Sakura black Identi-Pen.
And I used black acrylic paint with these Seth Apter stencils:

Once the paint dried, I added drawing with gel pens!

  2. I really like the colors in that kit but what are they? two of them are clearly spray inks, but I can't tell on the other two since they looked like they had different nozzles or something. No matter what the colors are really beautiful! mmpierron (at) yahoo (dot com) #SGPCCBmatchup
