Hello, and welcome back to Featured Product Friday!  Today’s featured product is brought to you by…the letter C…for Claudine Hellmuth and her fabulous Sticky-Back Canvas!  You don’t have to be a fine artist to work with canvas.  Claudine’s Sticky-Back canvas is perfect for a plethora of artistic ventures and works well with a multitude of mediums.  No matter what art form or medium you prefer Sticky-Back Canvas is sure to find a place on your list of “Must Have” products.

Featured Product Friday: Sticky-Back Canvas project ideas, tutorials and more! | Pluckingdaisies.com  Sticky-Back Canvas comes in three sizes 8.5″x 11″(letter), 12″ x 12″ (scrapbook) and ATC sizes.   The Claudine Hellmuth Studio line from Ranger Ink also has a variety of brushes, paints, mediums, stencils and stamps in addition to Sticky-back canvas.   There are so many ways to incorporate Sticky-Back Canvas into your art.  It doesn’t matter whether you are a card maker, home maker, mixed-media/ altered artist, or jewelry creator…heck even if you think you don’t have a creative bone in your body you CAN work with Sticky-back canvas.

I learned so much about Sticky-Back canvas this past week.   Don’t worry, I’ve done all the leg work for you and have helpful videos, project inspiration and an original Plucking Daisies tutorial to share.

Featured Product Friday: Sticky-Back Canvas project ideas, tutorials and more! | Pluckingdaisies.com Jenny from Craft Test Dummies has a great review of Sticky Back Canvas where she shows examples of  a variety of inks and mediums on primed and un-primed Sticky-Back.  You can check out her review HERE.  It’s really helpful to see how different inks, paints and markers react with Sticky-Back.

Here are some of my favorite videos on Sticky-Back Canvas techniques.  For more videos and Sticky-Back inspiration check out my Studio Sticky-Back Canvas Pinboard

 STEP 2:  Add stitching details a shade or two darker than your canvas.  I don’t sew but this stitch stamp from Stampers Anonymous helps me fake it :)

 STEP 3:  Create an ombre effect by swirling on Distress Ink toward the middle of your canvas.  Go over the first color with a darker shade about halfway.  *I used Tumbled Glass + Salty Ocean and Peeled Paint + Mowed Lawn.

*TIP* Place rocks or weights on corners to prevent curling.

STEP 7:  Seal your sticky-back canvas with clear sealer.  I used Mod Podge Antique Matte to give it an aged look.

I’m sorry About the song Dee (Aren’t I a stinker?). But at least it wasn’t “The song that never ends”. So glad you liked the review…sticky-back is super awesome stuff!
