Coffee Friends Mixed Media Canvas

Hey everyone! I'm back with another inspiration piece for Southern Ridge Trading co, which if you'd like to see some more details of my project pieces you can visit their blog at SRTC blog or, don't forget to join our FaceBook Group as well! There is more and more new shapes being loaded into the website so make sure you go take a look.

So once again my topic on my canvas is coffee... lol ...hmmm imagine that! I seem to have so much stuff geared toward my caffeine obsession!! And stamps are not exception! My BFF sent me a new stamp recently and I had to try it out here.

It was an Art Impressions stamp and I just LOVE it! Plus I got this Poloroid die from Stampin Up recently during their Sale-A-Bration event and knew it would be perfect for this. I coloured in Copics and then put the cut frame around the image and painted the whole thing with a DecoArt glaze, it really does look like a Poloraid! Anyhow, the background is covered in lace and molding paste (so much fun!) and then gesso and spray inks. I got to try out the Prima Colour Bloom sprays last weekend at a crop with some friends. I sure do like the spray nozzles on those but the ink itself is very similar to that of Dylusions. I was hoping it was more of a paint than ink spray and might be a little more opaque but, it's still nice stuff! I went over top of the Prima coral colour with some Pink and Gold sprays from my FAV Lindy's Stamp Gang prays till I was happy with the colours and shimmers.

Those cool scrabble letters are from Southern Ridge as well as the sunglasses and the coffee mug. The big Friends word is something I picked up at Michaels awhile ago, I painted it and then added some crackle medium to the top of it.

Now, I hope you like this project. I am going to enter it over at a new Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog June is their first challenge and they are asking that you use Sprays on your project and that I have used lots of!!! Hope you can jump over and join in as well!

Thanks for looking as always!!
