Hey Friends, we made it to the weekend!!! Today we're heading out to do a little back to school shopping, catch a movie and a bite to eat. Should be a great day! Before I go, I wanna share a very special painting that I completed yesterday. I think I'm gonna call this one "With Love" because I made it for my nieces' room. One just turned 13 and the other is 9 so I went fun, bright, colorful and inspiring on this one:
This is a 11x14 canvas and I started out by applying a thick coat of Golden Crackle Paste with a palette knife. I gave it about 24hrs to completely cure before I started adding paint. Here is a closer look at those beautiful cracks:
Aren't those crack just gorgeous, they really add great texture and interest. Next I applied Liquitex Soft Body Acrylic in Indian Yellow to the outer edges of the canvas.
Then I pulled out those fabulous Dylusions Ink sprays and had some fun. I used Crushed Grape, Bubblegum Pink and London Blue.
I used letter stencils in various sizes and sprayed them randomly around the canvas with black Dylusions ink. I drew the heart and painted it in with Liquitex Soft Body Acrylic then outlined it with black and white India Ink.
The quote is from a Tim Holtz stamp set but it was too small so I typed it out in Word, printed on cardstock, cut it, inked the edges with TH Distress Ink, Salty Ocean and adhered it to the canvas. I'm really loving the fun bright colors and I hope my nieces love it too.
Well, I gotta start getting ready but before I let you go I've got a shout out:
Thank you so much for joining us, I'm so happy to have you :D
Have a Wonderful Weekend!!!!!!!!
