Hi everyone hope you're all well today! Popping on to share a canvas that I've made as a charity raffle prize which was originally going to be modeled on my art book design here.
After going through my images I found this image which included a nurse which was perfect for the Macmillen cancer support charity coffee morning that a friend is holding. The image dictated the colour scheme and style which is very far away from the style of my original idea. I may still make a canvas based on the art book at some point as it's one of my favourite entries so far.
I painted my background first with a mixture of Williamsburg blue and Lemonade green Deco-art paints and then added the image by the gel transfer method. After that I took a Ronda Palazzari feather stencil and spread some glass bead paste through it around the edges fanning them out towards the canvas edges.
I did a bit of stamping around the canvas in black with a Kaisercraft music and script stamp and in white paint with a dictionary stamp then I went on to add a piece of wide lace that I'd sprintzed with colour and all the flowers.
Some of the flowers I made myself with the Tim Holtz tattered florals die and tyvek fabric which I coloured with the same blue paint as the background and shaped with heat.
There are lots of Frantage Embossing Enamels added around the canvas: aged gold, shabby white, aged red, aged black, shabby blue and I added a painted Ideology metal sentiment band at the bottom right.
I spritzed the canvas a little bit with some Dylusions spray inks, mainly the white dragged a bit of the Lemonade paint over the flowers here and there. I've also added some pearl pen pearls and inked around the edges and over the top of the canvas in black ink.
If you've read to the bottom of this post..............I like you very much :D. Enjoy your day.
