It felt so good to be back in my studio and getting my hands messy. I had been working on the “business” side for the last week and no time for creating.
This 5″ x 7″ canvas is the result.
I went looking in my scraps bin and took out some gelli plate prints, scrapbook paper and some post card printables. I used DecoArt’s DecouPage to collage them to the canvas.
I then added some acrylic paint with glazing medium from Americana to tone down the canvas and mesh all the papers together.
I love Tim Holtz Distress Inks! I love the vintage and time worn look they give papers. I applies the Vintage Photo color to the bird printable and the canvas.
Continued working on the background with Dylusions stencils, Americana paint and Paper Wings Productions stamps.
I love this charcoal pencil! I used it around the red bird to give it a more dimensional look. I used my finger to rub the pencil line and blend it in.
I let it sit overnight and I was wondering if I was done. You know how I love adding words to my art, so I was contemplating what to add to this one. The phrase “Take Flight” was really in my head, but in the end I decided that it was perfect the way it was.
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and thanks so much for visiting!
