Fun with Lindy's Stamp Gang

Hi ya all, Christmas is just 2 weeks away!! I hope you have done most of your Christmas shopping otherwise it will be a mad rush. Not sure about the other side of the world but here in Singapore, it's the crazy time of the year where the cashier queue is endless, human traffic in the mall is horrendous and if you don't make it to town by 11am it's better to take public transport than to drive as car park will most likely be full :(

With all the craze, I still enjoy Christmas shopping to the max! Love feasting my eyes on all the pretty things on the shelves and lovely Christmas decors in the mall. Not to mention with the Christmas songs playing in every store. I just soak myself in the Christmas mood...LOL...what can I say, it's my favourite holiday of the year!

Ok, so initially my plan was to craft a little tonight. But I came down with a mild migraine and it has totally swipe out my mood and energy for crafting.

Paid a visit to my blog and I realize that I have not shared a mix media canvas I have created recently using mostly products from Lindy's Stamp Gang.

So here goes.....a shabby chic canvas, shabby chic me :O

This picture below gives you a glimpse of the background created using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Spray and Embossing powder. Notice how the embossing part shines and reflects the light?I love how the shimmer and dual tones of Lindy’s Stamp Gang products. If you have not try their embossing powder, you should. It shines!!

Next up, I’ve added more details to the background with some Color Shot pigment powder. This powder is so awesome. Do you know that you can actually mix it with any types of mediums? In the picture below, see how the pink North Stars are popping up. I have mixed the Alpine Ice Rose Color Shot with texture paste for this effect. Isn’t it yummy? Reminds me of strawberry cream :)

Before I start to decorate with my favourite embellishments, I have prepared the brick chipboard with a coat of gesso before spraying on a layer of Hydrangea Blue. To give it a distress look, I have mixed the Lindy's Stamp Gang Magical pigment powder in Yellow Rose of Texas with some water before applying onto the chipboard to give it a final touch. You can catch a glimpse of the chipboard in the picture below.

This is the picture of the completed canvas after adding on embellishments and touching up some areas with gesso to soften the whole look.
