This is a great way to add dimension to a canvas. I used extra thick Gesso but you could use texture paste or a similar product.
|Extra thick gesso, stencil, canvas and masking tape to stick stencil into position.|
Or you could use the toothed end of the tool (or make a similar shape by cutting it out of card).
You now have this wonderfully textured canvas.
So what to do now?
Well I challenged myself by using the Claudine Hellmuth's The Scrapbooker's Creativity Kit: Prompts And Ideas To Jump Start Your Layouts.
And guess which colours I pulled out for the challenge?

So the mind map took me to "Rain is just EX-HAIL" So to make the image. Umbrella man would be perfect.
So, I stuck some text paper onto card and ran it through the Cuttlebug with the Umbrella Man die.
Coloured the edges with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I also decided to use the other canvas as it described rain far better.
Die cut some letters and stuck everything down.
I did at a later date change EX-HALE to EX-HAIL as I thought it worked better and was more of a pun!
Hope you enjoyed this process?
