Mixed Media Canvas
At the beginning of April I made the trip up north (Teeside) to attend some Art Workshops organised by Sue Tucker and taught by France Papillon. I had a great weekend away with my friend Lynnda and met lots of other lovely ladies.
I'm of the opinion that you do workshops to learn techniques and learn about products not necessarily to create something perfect at the end. We made a handmade book, a beautifully textured frame and a canvas. Here's mine:
It suffered a bit on the way home and I didn't like the colours I did the canvas at the workshop but the textures were great. So this week I've had some time - I spun it round, added a little more Bead Paste and then covered with Black Gesso.
I've brushed on Opalite Glacier Blue re-inker, flicked on some Oak House Studio Gold Acrylic Ink and added all the embellishments. The molded plaster pieces had a coat of Green Precious Metal paint and I rubbed some Treasure Gold wax on the metal pieces. It's just finished with some scrabble tiles I've had for years!!
I noticed Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge is Show us your Metal so thought I'd enter the challenge! Thanks for visiting and leaving comments - they are much appreciated.
