3D Bloom and Texture
Hope you are all wrapped up
warm and cozy on this fine
We have Hazel Harler to talk
us through her stunning canvas
so get yourself a cheery cuppa
and prepare to be A-mazed....
"For my project I used a 6" square canvas board
First I cut some vase shapes out of corrugated card
having the ridges go different ways,
then I glued some wooden shapes and pearls to them.
The vases then had a coat of gesso
I coloured the vases with acrylic paint.
then sprayed gold foil Color Bloom on the blue vase,
brimstone wings on the pink vase and
dragonfly blue on the pale blue vase
I used my finger to spread some Treasure Pewter over the vases
I stencilled some modelling paste through a Dreamweaver stencil
and gave it a coat of gesso when the paste had dried.
I watered down some acrylic paint , dabbed it on the canvas
and sprayed with water letting it run down.
I put the paint on one colour at a time drying it between colours
I thought it was a bit pale so I added some yellow
paint and some red Gelatos I also splattered some frost Color Bloom
I used my finger to spread Treasure Pewter
over the modelling paste and went round the edge with black ink.
I stamped some Paperartsy tulips.
I coloured the flowers with pencils and cut them out
I'd stamped extra flowers so that I could 3D the central petal.
I glued all the pieces to the canvas."
