DIY: Mini Canvas Art - Ink
It's Day 4 in the Mini Canvas Art series. And today's project couldn't be easier. Although, I should give a warning to the perfectionist in you - this project is loosey goosey and will not bear exact results each time. Be free, let the perfectionist take a nap for this project! :)Step 1: Paint your canvas. I used a distress stain from Tim Holtz. And oops, I spilled some ink on my canvas!
Step 2: Take a Tim Holtz alcohol ink and create a pattern on a makeup sponge. This stuff will dye anything that it comes in contact with (see the blotch on my canvas?) so be careful!
Step 3: Practice creating a pattern with the sponge on scrap paper.
Step 4: Once you've got the look you want, being making an overlapping pattern on your canvas. Feel free to add ink to your sponge as needed.
And you're done. I made hearts and circles (gotta keep the design simple) - what ideas do you have for this project?
