Startastic!

This little 4 x 4 box canvas is the simplest ART to make. I covered the canvas in Terra, but you can use any medium that has depth to it. Even polyfilla should work. Just layer on enough to give a bit of texture, and then I used the new star stamps. I wet the stamps and pressed them into the Terra, using the background one round the edge and a couple of the stars in the middle. Allow to dry.

I then sponged them with a mixture of blue Studio paints by Claudine Hellmuth. While the paint was still relatively wet, I took some of it off with a baby wipe. I love this very simple effect and did find it hard not to use my Glimmer Mists or Precious Metal colours!!


I figured less is more....Still tempted though. I feel another canvas coming on....
