I am still testing the water , as I am much happier in monochrome pieces, soft colours and browns..so hold onto your hats!
So here is the canvas I made for Michelle:
well you know me and my love of hearts and wings, I love blue and would have stuck to that, but Michelle has this whole love of colour thing going on and I embraced it! Had lots of fun and well that's it really..had a go.
I added layers of paintyness, then added some texture paste coloured with paint, through a stencil and left to dry.
When dry I added lots of painty layers through different stencils and some sequin waste ( thanks Mum!).
Then I stamped with PAINT!! I know how mad, but managed to stamp and get stamp clean again..
Finally I added circles using a pot lid dipped in paint and some lines using a thick piece of card and edged with some paint.
The decoration, a heart, ( wound with wire..love wire!),
some textured pasted wings, covered in treasure gold..(silver) and dream big cut from my word play die..
I think sometimes it is good to challenge our creative boundaries and have a go at something new..I will never leave my love of distress and all things vintage behind..and a dash of steampunk thrown in..but may embrace this whole painty thing and colour a bit more!
Have a fun and inky one!
