Oh, Deer!

Posted on

It’s time for the Compendium of Curiosities III Challenge #9 over  at StudioL3.  You can find the technique for this challenge on page 63 of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3, Stamps & Framelits.

I used a set called Holiday Joy.  Although the set is designed for holiday projects, I used it in a non-holiday way.  Here in my area we frequently see deer standing by the side of the road with trees behind them.  I tried to recreate a scene like that on my little 4″ x 4″ canvas.

I used Distress Paint for my background and to stencil the rays.  I used Distress Markers and Inks for my stamping.  After I cut out the images with the corresponding dies, I cut the antlers off and “adjusted” the head of the lighter colored deer to create a doe.  I glued the deer together is a side-by-side stance and the attached them to the canvas with foam tape. I added an Emerson quote that seemed fitting for the scene.

I put the canvas on a small easel (after it took the photo) and put it on mantel.  It will be another art surprise for my grandkids to find!

Inspiration Emporium is the sponsor for CCC3 #9.  I’m sure I would have no problem spending a gift certificate there!

Thanks for visiting.  Until next time, Vic

  2. Very nice, Vic. I like the way you linked the deers necks together. They’re kind of cuddling, looking up at the trees. ❤ ❤ ❤
