Time for a canvas... in lovely blue shades made by the talented Linda.
Linda used paint, metal, micro beads, sticky back canvas: a lot of texture going on here...
I had fun playing with the Eco Green Acrylic Paint and Gesso to make my bird canvas this week ... but before I touched any paint I added lots of texture to the canvas! A strip of old book page ... a piece of Claudine Hellmuth's Sticky Backed Canvas pleated; some Gesso through a Sequin Waste Stencil ... and then I started painting!
When I was happyish with the background I added some stamping in PaperArtsy Snowflake paint with the flourish from HP1005. Tim's Caged Bird was die cut from Ten Second Studio metal backed onto black cardstock with Humungo Tape and then embossed using a folder. The book page flowers are die cut with the Tattered Florals die.
I gave the impression of flower stems with black paint and the edge of a credit card. I think collage elements always look better if they are grounded.
