Hi my friends, It's been awhile hasn't it.
Here's a look at a canvas that I made as a gift for my sweet Dad's Birthday.
I was playing around with colors and textures for a background on this
12" x 12"canvas. I try to use products that I have on hand to create with. Gesso, paints, Distress sprays stains, chalk paint, crackle medium, and some of my favorite masks I begin layering.
First with paints I covered the canvas in random spots. These colors will peek through the crackle. I found that using flat paints often times crackle better.
Next I added the crackle medium and let it dry to the tacky stage before adding the chalk paint on top. Love the way chalk paint crackles!!
To tone it down just a bit more after the crackle layers and chalk paint dries, I add a soft layer of Gesso. It also adds a little more texture.
Now to add more color, Distress Spray Stain in Tea dye and Peacock Feathers.
I grabbed a couple masks and Gesso I add that yummy texture. Also a few pieces of tissue tape were added. Black circles place on using the cap from the distress stain dipped in the black paint adds a touch of contrast. Only need to add pictures, a title and of course flowers. Project just don't look finished to me unless I add flowers.
Finished the canvas and now ready to give to my Dad for his Birthday.
Hugs and happy crafting,
I'm entering this canvas in the challenge on the blog.....
Come take a peek! Thanks Laurie
