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
