Tim Holtz Canvas and a Little Bit of Wonderland

Hey scrapping friends!
Just sharing a Tim Holtz Canvas I did using some products from the Flying Unicorn Store. 7 Dots Wonderland, Crackle Paints, Distress Stains, and Mists to name a few!

I got the canvas at my LSS and have been waiting for the right mojo to come along to work on it. I really didn't want to go too overboard on it as I love the look of it already. So using some Timmy techniques from his new book, I came up with this.

 I used one of his Distress Stain techniques using Peeled Paint, Fired Brick and Wild Honey. And basically you wet your background first with water in your mini mister, swipe on  your colors and while drying with your heat gun, misting with water as you go to blend the colors. Stains, Paints and mists can be found in the STORE

 The other technique I used was on the Grungeboard butterfly. You cover the grungeboard with Rock Candy and let dry. Using your Distress stains dab colors throughout letting the stains seep into the crackle. Wait a few seconds and after it seeps in..use your heat gun to dry. This is the effect you will get..pretty cool huh?

I pretty much did that same technique on my Fabscraps Bird cage chippie..but it works much better on grungeboard. I then swiped some Crackle Paint on top of it to grunge it up a bit.

 I used lots of stains and Crackle paints on this canvas and a few mists of Glimmer Mist as well. Here are some close ups

 Thanks for taking time to check creation!!! I hope you get inspired to create something today!! Happy Scrappin!
