Today's Grungy Monday challenge over on Linda's blog Studio L3 is to make "Wearable Art" using Tim's products! As it so happens I made one of these aprons before to use during my demos and classes, but it seems to be AWOL at the moment and I needed to make a new one. These are really quick to make (if you have a ready made blank apron that is) because all you need is the apron, some masks or stencils and Tim's Color washes in an assortment of colours. The only thing you have to be careful of is not to over-spray opposite colours on the colour spectrum as you will get muddy tones. For this reason I lined my sprays up in a "rainbow" and worked from the top of the apron downwards.
Then to highlight my name a bit I used "Diamond" Stickles to edge it. I love how they pick up the colour ink they are over and colourize themselves!
When the sprays were dry I used some stamps that I made from Tim's Sizzix dies using art and craft foam through my Vagabond with some Pearl Paint Dabber for a subtle look on the birdcage, bird, hinge and lock.
This took me a total of 30 minutes to make, cleaning up took longer! Mostly cos I was doing a Dy and rubbing the stencils off in my art journal before I went to rinse them under the tap.
