For my second August post, I have some wearable art to share with you.
I began by cutting an 8.5 x 2.5 inch strip of Grungepaper.
I embossed it with a Tim Holtz Sizzix embossing folder, to add some texture.
Then, I painted both sides with black Studio Gesso, & once this was dry, I applied some coppery Guilding Wax to it. I added some green gold highlights, dried it with a heat tool, & buffed it with a soft cloth.
I cut 2 strips of Studio Sticky Back Canvas, one 8.5 x 1.5 inches, & one 8.5 x 0.625 inches. I spritzed the thinner strip with Cut Grass Dylusion Spray, & the wider strip with Vibrant Turquoise Dylusion Spray. On the wider strip, I placed the Andy Skinner Rollerball stencil over the top, & spritzed with water, to take out some of the colour, & leave a dotty pattern. I used Studio Black Gesso to stamp the Chevron Element onto the narrow green canvas strip.
I glued the canvas strips to the Grungepaper base with Glossy Accents, for extra stick.
I used various Guilding Waxes to colour some large eyelets & some Ideaology Foliage.
I punched some holes with a Cropadile, & added the eyelets. I attached the Foliage with turquoise pearl brads, then added an Ideaology Hitch Fastening to one end of the cuff.
I added some rather suspect hand-stitching around the hole at the other end of the cuff, so don't look too closely! Lol!
I hope you like my arty cuff! I don't know about you, but I do love to make art that I can wear :o)
