|BeYOUtiful canvas by Cosmo Cricket - watercolor resist technique|
So, I did the first canvas with the Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi Starry Colors palette which is an assortment of pearl-tinted pigment paint that is water based and produces beautiful gold, champagne and pearl colors. I wet the canvas and then wet the colors I wanted to use and proceeded to color the canvas and the watercolor resist. Obviously, the resist portions resisted the watercolor and created the "BeYOUtiful" word! I then added the Tonic Nuvo drops in Limoncello, Morning Dew, Buttermilk and Almond Gloss to give it a little bit of pizzaz! These Tonic products are my other obsession lately so I was able to use my two current favorite products in one project - Fun! This is the perfect gift for the person I made it for who happens to be one of the most beautiful people I know - inside and out.

For the second canvas I used the Yasutomo pearlescent watercolor paint to create some fun colors but with a bit of shine. These are not glitter paints, but rather paints with a bit of shimmer to them - simply gorgeous! First, I wet the canvas to reveal the resist saying "Do More of What Makes You Happy" (this happens to be one word off of my favorite phrase - Do What Makes You Happy) and then wet the paint colors I planned on using with my Tim Holtz distress sprayer. I just brushed the paints on until I got the color I was looking for and then I added a splatter effect by using those same colors and putting them on my stamping block and splashing them onto the canvas. It turned out exactly as I wanted it and, to be honest, I might keep this one and hang it in my craft room!
