I had so much fun playing with the Vaseline technique Limor Webber taught us that I just had to try it one more time, but on a canvas this time. Here’s a link to her Ustream class where she taught us the technique if you’re interested. Art Journaling With Limor Webber. I wanted to do a quote type of canvas with this one and am a bit on the fence with it. Not sure I should have put the faux screws on it….and if so, not sure I should have put paint on each one of them. Oh well…..one more thing to tuck into the ‘things I’ve learned’ vault. ;o)
I used my Liquitex Basics Acrylic paints for this and used the colors Burnt Umber, Bright Aqua Green, Unbleached Titanium and Titanium White. I mixed a batch of the Titanium White with the Unbleached Titanium White to make a lighter shade for the last coat. I hand-wrote out the quote using my Pilot PermaBall pen. I attached some Prima Free Spirit Wood Embellishments and Prima Tiny Junkyard Findings screws.
Here are some close ups of the embellishments and the layers of paint:
And here’s the final canvas.
There is a local new store in town that is specializing in antiques and vintage looking merchandise. She’s asked me to bring her some canvas’s and she’ll sell them. We’ll see how well the last two canvas’s I made sell…..lol. It would be the first time I’d ever sold anything but a card. Not going to hold my breath. ;o)
Thanks for coming by again…..until next time. Please feel free to leave me comments, as I do appreciate them. <3
