Family is Everything Canvas

by Deb Adams

Hi There,

The theme for creating this month at Scrap FX is Family.

Today I am sharing a canvas featuring my kids with some added Aussie flavour.

All three of my kids were enrolled at the same Primary School for one year only

before the oldest moved on to High School.

This image is from that year so is a very cherished memory for me.

The gum leaves & colours relate to where we live in rural Victoria, Australia.

The colouring of the background was made using Archival Ink reinkers & Rubbing Alcohol on my craft sheet.

I used a 12 x 12″sheet of canvas paper.

Applied a thin layer of white gesso before ‘smooching’ through the above mixture.

The colours used were Ground Espresso, Aquamarine Blue, Leaf Green with Gold Alcohol Ink mixative

& Marabu Ink Spray.

I made more backgrounds on which I stamped the Gum Leaves with Potting Soil Archival ink & fussy cut out.

The sentiments on the Family Transparency  add a nice sentiment & extra texture comes from

the Chicken Wire chipboard.

The Large Family Frame was perfect to halo all three.

The ‘Memories’ chipboard is from the Memories Theme Pack.

I hope you enjoy this colour combination as much as I do.

Cheers for now,

Deb Adams
