Here's what I'm bloomin' with excitement to show you...
Linnie Blooms canvas file folders are so much fun to play with. Just dump a pile of paints, inks, embossing pastes, stamps, stencils, and embellies on your work space and leave the world behind! These are a fun size, and as you'll see in my posts this week, there are so many uses besides just cute!
For this one, I painted the front with black acrylic paint. When dry, I paste-embossed in Dreamweaver Matte Black the Corner Flower stencil, set this aside to dry, and cleaned my stencil immediately. Once dry, I replaced the stencil over the design, and using Tsukineko Radiant Neon inks and small stencil brushes, I added color to the design. I poured clear embossing powder over the surface and heated it for a nice shine. On the back side, I used the same stencil and inked directly on the canvas with similar colors, and added a bit of doodling with a black Copic Multi-Liner pen. Both front and back were inked around the edges before moving to the inside.
