StencilGirl and Canvas Corp make Surfaces


This month StencilGirl Products is collaborating with Canvas Corp Brands to show you unique ways to use StencilGirl stencils with a variety of Canvas Corp Brands surfaces and Tattered Angels Paint Kits! Be sure to check out the details at the end of this post on how you can win a wonderful prize package worth over $50 in goodies from StencilGirl Products and Canvas Corp Brands!

Canvas Corp is practically a neighbor of StencilGirl! I mean, shoot, they live right down the road from us in Arkansas (we are in Missouri). They manufacture under the names Canvas Home Basics, Tattered Angels and 7gypsies.
Back in the day, before I spent the bulk of my time running SGP, I used 7gypsies materials in my collage work All.The.Time. There are certain discontinued 7gypsies tissue papers with which I am obsessed and I may be hoarding them. Just sayin'
Imagine my delight when I was allowed to pick some products to try! I wanted to play with the Tattered Angels brand, specifically the Naturally Aged Kits - I chose Tarnished Silver.
This stuff is crazy! I mean seriously crazy. You can get such interesting effects and you can absolutely depend on it. I have tried this sort of thing in the past and could never get it to look right, but trust me when I say these are completely awesome.
I went a wee bit wild I shall say, on tags, scrap paper, in my journal. My oh my. 
The thing is, the package insert is excellent, so incredibly specific with a step by step description of how to get the desired effect. It would be impossible to mess it up and trust me, I am the Queen of messing stuff up. I did spill one of the bottles, but, I think I was overexcited. 


See what I mean? Addictive in a good way.
All these examples were done on paper type products, gessoed and non-gessoed. The last image shown (above) is a journal section where I had used a stencil from our StencilClub, my designs from January 2017.
Here is the Tag that I made and embellished with other products from Canvas Corp. I also used our stencil by Carolyn Dube, Now is the Time, one of my favorite stencils ever.
Just as an fyi, these Kits will work on matte or glossy paper; canvas; corrugate (must try this next!); handmade papers; cork; other natural materials. And I must say, I need to get my hands on some more of these as there are other Kits I am dying to try - the Peeled Paint Kit or the Age Terracotta or the.....well, you get the idea, they are all pretty special.
