When it comes to my art I have allot of dreams. So many things I’d like to try. I’m going to be one busy girl during my retirement!!
This evening I decided to try my hand at a canvas again. I found a 12 x 12 canvas and had an idea…..well, sort of. I knew I wanted to use my new Lindy’s Stamp Gang Under The Boardwalk sprays, I wanted to use the new Prima flowers I’d bought and I wanted to use my Prima Vintage Trinkets clock face. Past that…..I didn’t have a clue!!!
I started by putting down some strips of drywall mesh tape and some strips of textured ribbon I’d received in one of my destash boxes from Limor. I used my Gel Medium for this. I knew I wanted to use my Prima Bubbles stencil as well so I didn’t want a lot of other texture.
I put a coat of Gesso over the brown lace and added another strip of white lace and then sprayed the canvas with the Orange Creamsicle, Merry-Go-Round Green and Tile-A-Wheel Teal. I gave it a couple of coats and let the colors blend just a little and heat set it.
Then I added all my flowers and embellishments. This was fun and just a bit intimidating at the same time. Put them on….take them off…..add a little hear….remove a little there. I’m not sure if I’ll ever get to a place where I’m confident in what I do….lol
So, here’s some close ups of the finished piece and some showing the texture of the canvas:
I do like the texture and depth to the canvas. Here’s what the finished piece looks like:
Now I think I need another couple sets of those flowers….lol. They’re just sooooo pretty! I’ve got a list of products used at the end. I always appreciate comments.
