I was finally able to get some better pics of my latest canvas this morning, YAY!
I'm calling this 12x12 canvas "Sweet Harvest". My inspiration for this piece came from a recent trip to Hobby Lobby. The isles were full of the warm rich colors of fall and the sunflowers really stood out to me.
With fall in mind, I got to work. First I doodled on some flourishes with 3D Gloss Enamels. I wanted to add texture and dimension to my background. If you use this product on your project, be sure to let it dry naturally. I let this cure over night before continuing.
Next I began layering in my colors using Raw Umber and Yellow Oxide Golden Fluid Acrylics. I also used TH masks with Red Liquitex spray paint. I spread the red paint around with a baby wipe to blend it into by background. I also used some ART-C mist to tone the color down a bit.
Remember those 3D doodles? I ran my brayer over the canvas with some Raw Umber to help them pop. I love the way they turned out :D
In keeping with the harvest feel, I used some burlap and stamped my sentiment on canvas. I wanted to tie the red in and give the canvas piece a finished look so I ran it through my sewing machine with some red thread. It was looking a little stark to me so I toned it down with ART-C Mist.
The beautiful die cut sunflowers are from K&Company and those gorgeous roses are from Paper Studio.
Here's a closer look :D
The blue strip of patterned paper is from an ART-C kit.
I've been wanting to use that feather for awhile!
