Good morning all
Not so warm today as it was yesterday - in the sun in our garden it got up to
over 45 c !!!
Too hot to be in the garden but a nice day to dry the washing.
Thank you for your very kind comments about my work it really is appreciated and
a great boost for me at this time.
Not sure where the time is going .... so here is my project for today
I made this with Summer florals in mind
Note how the paints shimmer in the light - hopefully you can see this -
the colours change in the light
Started with a white canvas board !!!
Covered it with black gesso and then started with my design.
Using acrylic paints used the IndigoBlu laurel leaf stamps and stamped around the
edges with different colours - waiting for the paints to dry and adding more
colour and texture.
Painted the now black canvas with shades of blue acrylic Dyna paints
First stamping with the leaves
Stamped butterflies into the background
For the flowers I used snippets from the front paper from IndigoBlu
and die cut out the flowers using Tattered Lace dies.
Added gold dots to the centers of the flowers.
Then stamped a butterfly onto paper and coloured in with the paints.
I hope you like it and would like to enter it for the following
I do seem to be in the mood for making projects with canvas at the moment
It is great fun.
Have a go, if you have not tried it yet.
What have you got to loose... nothing as you can always go over with gesso again
and start again .... fantastic.
Must go now - have a great day
