Here I sit with tons on my plate and all I wanted to do today was play with my canvas and inks and Lumieres and Glimmer Mists. At the crop, Kip and Di were both playing with Kip's canvas book that we learned how to make in Tim Holtz class and, because one book is more than my room can handle right now, I decided to make a hanging for our bath above the toilet which has it's own little room off the main bath. I applied the ink and used Adironack Alcohol Blending Solution to soften the color. When that dried I spritzed the whole thing with Glimmer Mist, which I adore. It gave a shimmer to the soft Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. I printed the image of the dancing girl onto canvas and ironed it onto the inked canvas piece. I used Lumieres to enhance her costume and used a rub on in the upper left corner also enhancing it.
I want to 'frame' the piece a bit more but will figure out how I want to approach that tomorrow. Today, I am happy.
