I’m sharing another design team project that I created for The Crafty Scrapper. I had so much creative fun playing with these new Tim Holtz products. This project started out as a plain burlap canvas. I used a Tim Holtz “Floral” Stencil to apply modeling paste to the canvas. Once the paste was dry, I colored it using Distress Markers. Before the ink dried, I used a baby wipe to blend the color. This helped to soften the hue, but also gives a watercolor effect.

Now that my background was done, I could start embellishing. I used one of the new Paper Dolls as the happy couple. I tinted the bride’s roses to match the flowers on the canvas. I also gave her a veil of white tulle.

A Quote Chip, Transparent Tile, Chit Chat sticker, and tinted Bouquet round out the collage.
