I've been a bit slow with my blogging of late - no excuses, just not enough time. Sometimes I just want to shout STOP EVERYTHING while I catch up!
Anyway, recently the Fearless Four got together for a crafty day. Linda had a pack of 4 box canvases, and Lin provided some hessian ...
To start, I painted the canvas with pearlised paint and set aside.
The main panel is a piece of mountboard that I stamped and embossed first, before adding some texture paste at the bottom. Next, a sprinkling of Brushos, spritzed with water. I coloured the flowers with Inktense pencils (used with water). I then intensified the colour over the paste, and finally used some pearl glaze (a Fresco one made by Paper Artsy).
When dry, the mountboard was layered with the hessian onto the canvas with PVA glue.
And the other masterpieces ...
The mountboard was cut into four after stamping, and there is a bit of decoupage there. Love those flowers.
The canvas has some texture paste on it, and I like the matching canvas and mountboard colour.
Another enjoyable day.
Love Spring, when my garden is at it's most colourful -
It's going to turn cold again next week, with an arctic blast, which will probably wreck havoc on the flowers, so I'm enjoying them while I can!
