time for my weekly Visible Image post
and this week iv got something a little different a mixed media canvas
this was inspired by Helen's stunning Create with your Soul verse, i made it as a gift for her and so the colours are her fave.
i started with an 8'' round canvas, i stamped the verse scanned it and then re sized it in My Craft Studio to fit nicely in the centre of the canvas, i chose a background from My craft Studio faded it down. and overlayed the verse then printed it onto tissue paper.
i then added this to canvas using Deco Mache matt decoupage glue , once this is dry i mixed up some acrylic to the colour i wanted and using a sponge i coloured all over the edges and gradually faded it into the centre, then i went over the words with a thin paintbrush and acrylics in gold burgundy and black, not quite mixed together to give the dappled effect.
i left it to dry and then went over the whole thing with the decoupage glue to seal it, then came the fun part of arranging the flowers and foliage, all of which i got from the lovely Lisa at That Craft place.
and there you have it , i really love making these mixed media pieces, and really need to find the time to do more.
