Hello Faithful followers, it has certainly been awhile since my last post so thank you for your patience. I decided to branch out into a little different piece this time. This a multi media layout I made on canvas. I really had fun stepping out of my creative zone and learning a new technique or two.
I started with a , forgive the pun, blank canvas. I added the picture I wished to focus on, added some dimension by adding the brickwork (made by cutting chipboard 1/2 by an inch or so. After allowing the glue to set up I added a paint treatment that gave a very stucco like feel to the piece. This also served to blend the picture and brickwork onto the canvas. after adding a layer of white acrylic paint coat over that I just started adding everything and anything that reminded me of my children. As you can for my daughter I added a crown (which was actually a broach I had and I just added the blue jewel for color) Because every princess needs a crown.
and some gears also from Tim Holtz , since I have the die to cut these now I have really had alot of fun playing with different materials. As you can see here I used cardboard
I had to add a butterfly and some feathers.
I finished it off with these cool metal corners that I found at Michaels, sorry I don't know the names right now but it is a really cool like of metal pieces that, as you can see, can be inked to match your project.
Thank you for stopping by, until my next post, I will bid you auf wiedersehn.
