I’m back again from the bottom of the world [well so very close to it] to share a little more creativity with you all.
This time I decided to play with a little colour and to get my hands a little dirty and so I did both.
A triple hanging set of canvases.
I painted each canvas with clear gesso and set aside to dry.
I then found three plastic bags cut out some panels and scrunched each of them up a little and sprayed them with mist.
I turned the pieces of plastic bag upside down and dabbed areas on each canvas to give the canvas some background colour.
A real hot splotch of colour.
I found some old black rub-ons and randomly applied them around the edge of each of my canvases.
I used a Little Birdie Crafts stencil and some grainy texture paste and randomly applied through the stencil on each of the canvases.
I tore apart three pieces of cheesecloth [muslin] and sprayed each piece with a different colour cheesecloth and set aside for them to dry.
From my stash I found three different butterflies, each very similar in colour to the sprays.
I used three different chipboard words from the primed chipboard pack sentiments – think positive. I painted each word using a white acrylic paint and painted two coats – I wasn’t overly concerned having an even paint coverage.
I had some branch type pieces in my stash and made a circle, adhered on top of the muslin, adhered my gorgeous white flowers and the chipboard and then finally the word sentiment and my butterfly to each canvas.
I randomly applied some wee stones or sequins depending on the canvas colour.
Then with a toothpick I have randomly applied white gesso around the edges of the canvas, randomly on some of the cheesecloth and a little to the butterfly and to the flowers and sentiments.
and again in its entirety.
I had my husband’s assistance with the drilling of holes to hang my canvases together.
There you have it – three canvases – blessed, happy, grateful.
