Hello all! I am now entering another part of the art world. This is the first canvas for me. I started out with nothing that I ended up with. I had made a mistake that I tried to cover up and it really was bad so I scraped everything off and started over. I covered the canvas in Gesso so it would be a clean slate. Here is a list of the products I used:
Dreamweaver Crackle Paste and Glossy Black Paste
Ranger Texture Paste Transparent and Stickles
Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Shabby Shutters, Tumbled Glass, Peeled Paint, Fired Brick and Dusty Concord
Copics - YR16, Y08, Y00
Stencil from Wendy Vecchi
Dies from Heartfelt Designs, Gina Marie Deisigns and Darice
Stamp from Heartfelt Designs
Papers from Bazzill, Core 'dinations and generic
Sentiment is from Create with TLC
Stampin' Up Dazzling Diamonds Glitter
Ken Oliver Color Burst Yellow Ochre
Pearl is Queen & Co.
Flower is popped up with 3-D dimensionals and I used Heartfelt's techniques to make the flower dimensional too.
After I thought I was finished I took this over to my sisters house.
She gave me a few finishing ideas that really made a difference. This included a different flower. It was hard taking off the flower but I managed. The different color and added touches made a huge improvement. She is so talented!
My great niece said she wanted it and who could refuse this gorgeous face
So later today when we celebrate her daddy's birthday she will get a present too. I just love this little angel.
I hope you enjoyed this. Next canvas I will take pictures while making it so I can do a bit more to show you how I did it. Since this was for me to hang up and be a bit of inspiration, the next one may very well contain the same sentiments.
