Still Life Painting

I've always wanted to take a formal painting class - to study paint properties, shadow and light...

And yet, with stamps as the baseline, it's possible to paint a still life with convincing artistry!

Still Life Painting:
I've written the full details on how to create this project, along with the full supply list in the Cornish Heritage Farms' Technique Talk Forum.  The details can be found HERE, if you'd like to see step by step pictures.  And as a sidenote, I (or one of my colleagues) post a new technique each week to get your creative juices flowing.  I hope you'll stop by to see what we've been doing...

The sticky backed canvas is the perfect stampers platform - and I purchased a package from Ellen Hutson.  I'm so pleased that I'll be able to get several projects from one package.  I'd love to know how you use Studio Sticky canvas.  Post a note with some of your favorite ways.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Great project - I have yet to open my package of sticky back canvas, but now I'm motivated! Thanks for the inspiration!
