Tracy Evans showed us that using the REVERSE of a canvas can be just as effective as using the front!
This stunning creation was part of the Gesso masterclass feature in the February 2017 issue of Craft Stamper.
Die cut five hearts from white card and then adhere together to create a dimensional heart. Make a background on the heart as shown in technique 2. Add further detail by adding background stamping using the Ledger Script stamp and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. Apply Black Soot Distress Crayon around edges and smudge to give definition. Cover frame with book pages, adhering with Matte Medium. Apply Crackle Paste randomly around the frame using a palette knife and allow to dry. Paint the frame with Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Paints; adding water to dilute the paints a little so that the book pages are still visible and then dry.
Adhere heart to the frame, adding thread behind the heart. Add splatters of Black Soot Distress Paint. Smudge Black Soot Distress Crayon around the edges of the frame. Add a pen nib wrapped with wire and heart charm to the centre of the heart. Colour a piece of scrap card with Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink and then stamp the sentiment onto the card with Black Archival ink. Cut out and adhere the sentiment to the frame.

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!
