Hello again. Today I have an 8x8 canvas for you. I seem to be in a phase of wanting to decorate and paint things other than a card
I started by colouring the background with a variety of lilac/purple hues mainly from paperartsy fresco paints. I wanted to add some text so out with the wordchains and hydrangea archival ink. I stamped on tissue paper and mod podged it to canvas. Interestingly the words appeared purple even though I stamped in blue.
Then I used the smaller swirly leaves stencil and sponged metallic lilac acrylic paint through it. I think this one was by Cosmic Shimmer.
Once dry, out came 2 more stencils, Madeline and honeycomb. I used grunge paste which I let dry before adding any colour.
I decided that I was only going to add colour to the flowers in her hair, lips and eyelid.
Above you can see the flower in detail. I added 2 shades of treasure gold gilding wax to flower and distress glitter on the 3 areas on stalk.
I added a hint of colour to the rest of the face with spectrum noir pencils which i smudged with my finger.
I coloured the honey comb areas and added more treasure gold to them and along all 4 edges of canvas.
I really hope you like my offering as much as the recipient did, Theresa xx
