Make a Wish Canvas

We have a sketch challenge for our Crazy 4 Challenges challenge this week! I took it for a bit of a fun ride so I hope you can still sort of see the sketch.

I wanted to use this doll stamp on my card. But she is so big (this is an 8×10” canvas) that I decided against a standard card. Next size up was either a canvas or an art journal page but I prefer to see my work up on the wall so I went with a canvas. I obviously flipped the sketch to portrait orientation. I represented the large rectangle with my doll and the thin strip with the stenciling. On the right the sketch isn’t quite as obviously represented but I thought the words could sub for the smaller rectangle.

The background is covered in Tim Holtz tissue paper adhered with gel medium then painted with acrylic paint. The grass is 6×6” paper from Cosmo Cricket added with more gel medium. I added some script stamping (ranger archival inks) and stenciling with Art Is stencil (TCW) and Prima white crackle paste. I shaded the ground with Big Brush Pens by Faber-Castell. The flowers were PTI buttons glued on with gel medium and the stems drawn on with a Copic marker. I find using it over gel medium works well. The same Copic marker was also used for some airbrushing on the grass and for the quote.

The doll was paper pieced with X-Press It cardstock and Cosmo Cricket paper. I used E55, 57, 59 and 29 for the hair and E00, 21, 11 and 33 for the skin. The dress was shaded with E43 and the red parts are R37, 59 and 89.

Enjoy, Rebecca

Hi! I’m a disabled SAHM of three wonderful boys. Married since 1997 to Tim. I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.
