Recently I’ve been working on some smaller original canvases in preparation for my next show. Every day is a gift original canvas is soft and whimsical.
It started with a layer of scrapbook papers, Distress Paint in Cracked Pistachio, and gesso on an 8″ x 10″ Artist’s Loft canvas. I love the way the distress paint can be spread on with the dauber and the amount controlled simply by squeezing the bottle.
The layering process continues with The Crafter’s Workshop stencils Raven Mosaic TCW586 in both the 12″ x 12″ and 6″ x 6″. I used Modeling paste mixed with Americana Acrylic in Green Tea, and Crackle Paste with Saffron Yellow.
Here you can see how the spray ink finds it’s way through the crackle paste and adds some great texture.
The words were stamped on with blocked letters with a ganache colored ink.
This is the second canvas in a series of 8″ x 10″ mixed media inspirational canvases designed for young girls or women. The first one you can see here. All of them will be going to my next event, Believe Boutique at Cornerstone Church in Chandler, But they are also listed in my shop until then.
Thank you so much for visiting with me today!
