Winter Tree Canvas
I thought I would blog my process for working on a canvas
Basically, I just start by using something I like as a base point
I used some pollyfiller through the winter tree stencil, there was some blue ink left on the stencil which gave the texture that blue colour.
Then I added some torn book pages,
And a few blobs of blue paint, at this point I had no idea where it was going!
Ruined it totally with the mustard colour! Where do I go now?
I swept across it with some white, pink and blue acrylic paints and then went round the circles with a black oil pastel and rubbed it with my finger to blend it. The other circle I did with sparkle texture paste.
I added some white paint with some texture pads and then some embossed blossom. Stamped some birds, I like these birds. I also brushed some gold acrylic paint across it too. The circles weren't quite dark enough so I used a really small brush and some black glossy paint. To frame it all I went round the edge with versamark ink and used black embossing powder. Then just onto another white canvas.
It's taken me four days of going back to it, but I think I'm finished now. The point is, even if you think you've ruined something it isn't always the case. Also, you don't always have to have a plan!
I never do. Xx
