Woodn't it be Lovely?

Woodn't it be Lovely

Hi there!

Are you enjoying this
theme as much as I am?
When I first saw these
wooden embellishments
I was somewhat bemused
but I am fast becoming
a convert to their versatility

In case you haven't quite
made up your mind take
a look at Hazel Harler's canvas:

 "Hi everybody, my latest project 
is an oriental canvas using
Kaisercraft wooden flourishes 
and Color Bloom sprays.

 I used a canvas board, 
Kaisercraft wooden flourishes
 and a piece of chipboard.

 I also used Kaisercraft stencils
 and blosson stamp - 
in the end I didn't use the bamboo stencill

I stencilled some modelling paste 
on the canvas board and 
when it was dry I gave 
it a coat of gesso. 

I also gave the chipboard and
 flourishes a coat of gesso.

 To colour the canvas I scribbled
 some Gelatos over it.

Then I used a baby wipe to spread the colour.

I turned the canvas upside down 
and sprayed some sunshine Color Bloom 
and let it run down the canvas, 
then added some dragonfly blue Color Bloom.

I then sprayed some iris Colour Bloom 
on the top and let it run down the canvas.

Then I sprayed some wild raspberry Color Bloom.

I stamped the main image onto tissue paper
and on the back painted the face white,
 I also stamped the blossom onto tissue paper 
and then used matte medium to glue them 
to the canvas and chipboard. 

The wooden flourishes were painted with
 iris Color Bloom.

 I glued the wooden flourishes and
 image to the canvas and then I used 
my finger to spread some white gold
 Starlight paint over the blooms
 and edges.

Starlight paint and the sequins
 that I added

The finished canvas.


This is a lovely canvas Hazel 
Thank you for showing it
to us

Amazing what you can do
with these wooden flourishes

'Till tomorrow
