I am still thinking of male appropriate projects at the moment. Last time I made a very functional little "faux leather" notebook for my father in law. But this time I am going for a bit of colour and a purely decorative item.
My canvas was firstly painted with acrylic paints. I then stamped on to tissue paper (the kind you wrap crockery and gifts in, not the kind you blow your nose on). I cut out the stamped images and words (both are from Tim Holtz stamp sets), and glued them in to place using decoupage glue.
I added remnant rubs, some craft tape, a bit of film strip ephemera and a Tim Holtz alterations die cut. I also spelled out the word "HIM" using die cut letters and attached them to the film strip ephemera.
I then coated it in a crackle varnish. let it dry (and crackle) then rubbed in (and wiped off) some more acrylic paint.
That's it really. a bit of colourful fun with a male theme.
