Life Is A Journer - Canvas by Brenda Caldow
Hello crafty friends and welcome to the A2Z Scraplets Blog. Today I would like to share a canvas I have created using three chippies.
To start my canvas I first painted it with Black Gesso. Once it was dry I then used Modeling Paste with a Diamond Stencil. Once it was where I wanted it I then dried it with a heat gun.
Then I picked my chipboard and placed them in the positions I wanted except for the feather.
Once glued where I wanted them I then Black Gesso everything again. When I dried it with the heat gun this time I made sure I used some extra heat where the stencil was to allow it to bubble up.
Once this was done it was time to colour things. To do this I chose to use my new Prima Colour Waxes. I used a mix of colours and a dry brush to do them. I applied it to the texture paste diamonds and also the chipboard.
Once this was done it time to distress my photo and mount it. I chose a purple colour to match in with the waxes. I then put it where I wanted on my canvas. I then placed on some Little Birdie paper flowers at two corners of my photo.
The next and final step was to colour my feather dangle. For this I chose to use DecoArt Metallic Lustre and Prima Sparks Acrylic paint. For this I applied it with a pint brush. Once this was done itt was time to place it on my canvas.
As you can see by the next closeups to follow my canvas was finished.
