Hello again. Today I have a small canvas for you that I have made for a friend of mine that loves poppies. However her birthday is at the end of the month so I need to hide it and make sure I don't post it on social media.....
So I started with a 6x6 canvas. The diamonds and ovals are 'waste' from a die that I had cut earlier. I triple mounted each for dimension and then attached to the canvas. Then I gessoed it 3 times for good coverage.
I then set about making the flower. It is the jumbo poppy by Stampendous. I stamped it in versamark and embossed it in black. I did several layers to decoupage it.
I coloured the flower with abandoned coral distress paint and added darker shading with barn door. For the centre I used shabby shutters and forest moss paints.
I assembled it and left it to dry. I then spritzed canvas with black dylusions and fossilized amber distress spray stain. I also added a little spritz of biscotti perfect pearls for a little bit of sparkle.
Once the flower was dry, I spritzed it with spray and shine to bring out the shine and give it more durability.
I left it to dry and added some shadow underneath the raised areas. I went round the outside edges with black soot distress paint and finally added ruby treasured gold and renaissance pebeo gilding wax.
Finally I attached flower to canvas and added some black swirls for some extra flourish.
So I really hope she will like her little pressie, Theresa xx
I would like to enter this canvas in the following challenges:
