How does Linnie Blooms fit into a patriotic Weekend? Where were you this Patriotic Weekend? Did you see fireworks? Did you see Old Glory?
I saw this beautiful 12 x 12 canvas from Linnie Blooms waiting for me to create my inspiration for the fourth of July. I saw hazes of color left over from fireworks, I saw smiles and food that stretch for miles and miles. We Sang Songs But, don’t tell anyone No one was in tune.. On Sunday, I watched the US women’s soccer team win the World Cup and saw flags flying and smiles that were alive through painted faces. In the stands I could saw a sea of Red White and Blue. It made me remember how beautiful are flag truly is, the meaning behind it and how proud I am of it!
I’m making my post on July 6th for Linnie Blooms and my creation was a version of Old Glory it was all the things I saw over the last few days, Thank you for letting me share it with you.
I began my project with a 12 x 12 Canvas Page from Linnie Blooms, this size it’s great for a frames, albums,wall hanging all sorts of things.
I used the Linnie Blooms Canvas Sunflower Stencil (it comes with 2 pieces a negative and a positive), to hold my USA , I freehand my stripes I wasn’t looking for perfectly straight,I daubed and painted and textured to create the stripes. I used Folk Art paint White for the base and Folk Art Red to start the stripe and I finished with Red from Art Anthology. Art Anthology’s Mud was used on top of stripes for give texture.
I threw some turquoise paint from Art Anthology in scattered places.
I used the Linnie Blooms Canvas Sunflower Stencil to trace onto a piece of material and then I cut it out and used fabric tac from Beacon’s to adhere to the canvas. I used the same material and Sizzix’s Star Framelits to cut out a star, I used a piece of lace to cut out a star too! (Fabric-tac on both)
I forgot to mention that before I started the project I painted the canvas using the Folk Art Paint White
Happy Summer Day’s
