Color Burst Sunflower and a MISTI Trick!

Happy Monday!
The girls on the Ken Oliver Crafts Team were challenged to make a project that is not a card, tag or art journal page… so here is what I came up with. I used a Ken Oliver Craft 6 x 6″ Mixed Media Art Board as my canvas for my painting.

I started with a stencil (Mini Joyful Sunflower Stencil from The Crafters Workshop) and tapped some Color Burst onto the stencil. I misted with water.

I used a wet paintbrush to rewet the Color Burst. .

I used Color Burst in Turquoise and Color Burst Liquid Metals Verdi Gris applied with a wet paintbrush to create my background.

***MISTI trick time!***

I assembled the Spring phrase with Pegz Clickable Letterz Stamps. These are fun individual letter stamps that snap together. I used two of the Pegz stamps on their sides in the corner of my MISTI (I added tape so they stayed in place) to get just the right placement for my stamp phrase. It worked perfectly the first time but had it not stamped a complete image, I could have gone right back over it and stamped again. I used Ken Oliver Crafts Click -it Inkpad in Turquoise.

The MISTI magnets are so strong they held my thick Art Board in place!MISTI Sunflower 3 Jeanne_Streiff
