Jo Firth Young has created this stunning floral canvas for the March 2017 issue of Craft Stamper Magazine. So bright, vibrant and cheerful, we love it! Check out the magazine to see a full pictorial step by step tutorial.
This canvas makes me smile – it’s created in one of my favourite colour schemes: pink and green – it’s fresh and bright, just like summer itself.
Am I the only one who is fed up with the cold weather? Thankfully we’ll soon be coming out of winter and heading into spring when the plants will start to bud. I’m impatient for flowers, so I’ve created a canvas of lush summer colours and big vibrant flowers to cheer myself up – I hope they make you smile too!
The flowers are designs from the new release of JOFY stamps for PaperArtsy, and have a coordinating stencil and mask. I like having a stamp and stencil combination – it really extends what you can do with the products. These two designs work together but are designed NOT to match up perfectly – giving a result similar to an offset screen print. I really like that effect.
The design of this canvas can easily be adapted to other sizes of canvasses, art journal pages or cards... or different themes such as Christmas by replacing the flowers with snowflakes (I’m sorry, I know it seems we’ve only just finished the festive season).
The three flowers on this canvas were created using the technique detailed in this article, in various shades of the same colour (Bougainvillea and Chalk) to look like they were growing from the same plant, or picked from the same plant.

Craft Stamper Printables!
We are thrilled to be launching our brand new printables series this month. Each month, Craft Stamper will be sharing one (or sometimes 2!) totally free sheets of elements, all ready for you to print off and use in your art.
We’ll have a mixture of images, backgrounds, sentiments and templates for you to play with, all created by the Craft Stamper team. Have a great idea for a printable element? Let us know and we’ll see what we can do!
This month, we have ready to print versions of our exclusive autumnal images, a selection of sentiments and a really useful ATCoin back for you to use. We also have some stunning textural pics, images photographed by our own Jaine! We have small sizes that fit perfectly onto an ATCoin, and as our bonus sheet this month, the pics have been scaled up for larger projects!
We can’t wait to see what you all create using our printables, so feel free to share on our facebook page, or email our team a picture at: editor.cs@mytimemedia/com. We’d love to take a peek!
