I OVER think it. Then I make something, and it is not what I pictured so I wait and make something else. Then I end up waiting until the last minute. Not sure what is wrong with me.
Well, I finally made a project yesterday that I really like.
My first ever canvas and I am kinda' lovin' it.
These where the colors for the April Color Challenge
Here are the LSG sprays that I used:
You can check it all out on the LSG blog.
Here is a close up where you can see the colors.
I sprayed the canvas. Then added more, then ended up washing color out from adding more on top. LOL In the end, I liked the colors and patterns.
You can see that I applied Golden Light Modeling Paste through a Prima Damask stencil over the sprayed canvas and it soaked up the colors that were underneath it. Then I added a little more with a paintbrush just to get it where I wanted.
Here you can see where I added the same paste through a TCW Wildflowers stencil and then painted over it with a brush.
Check out these flowers...
I used vellum. I die cut the flower shapes with a TH and sprayed them with
I added little squirts of Alpine Ice Rose on the pink flowers and Marigold Yellow Orange to the yellow flowers just to get a little color variation.
I made the centers darker by dabbing on more Ramblin’ Rose Pink then added glass beads and micro beads.
For the leaves, I tore strips of vellum and sprayed them with Edelweiss Moss Green.
If you look closely, you can see where I sprayed white cloth wrapped wire with the green and made little tendrils.
So what am I taking from this?
Process videos will have to come later next week.
