Jazz Up Your Coffee Sleeve Mixed Media Style (Guest Design Team)
Hi everyone, this is Erin here writing my last guest design team post! I'm really going to miss it!! Today I'm sharing with you this coffee sleeve I altered.
To create this coffee cozy, I took a piece of Sticky-Back-Canvas and traced a Starbuck's coffee sleeve onto the canvas' disposable liner. I then cut out the canvas and then painted gesso over the canvas side and allowed it to dry.
I then got out some fun stamps and some Stazon Ink and got to work stamping onto the canvas. I didn't worry about it stamping well, I just wanted the outlines of the design there to use as a guideline.
Next, I took the Cobalt Green 156 Stamper’s Big Brush Pen and scribbled the ink onto my craft mat (you could use some waxed paper if you don't have a craft mat) and then added a little spritz of water to the ink and then painted in my design. I also used the same pen to color in the design as well. I love that one pen can look so different color wise!
I also took a Pink Madder Lake 129 Stamper’s Big Brush Pen and watered the ink down too, and then used a toothbrush to platter on some pink! To add some teal color to highlight the word "love" I used the teal Gelatos™ Color. Just like I did before, I scribbled it onto my craft mat, added water, and then painted it onto the canvas.
Thanks for reading my posts! Hope you were inspired to create something wonderful!
