Pink and red mixed media ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week was good and you have fabulous weekend plans. Today I have a recycled mini canvas to share with you and here it is …
Yep - another mini one canvas - love them! Gorgeous depth
And I love the effect I got on the heart!
A final look
I got a wee bit bored with the original canvas that I had created so I removed all of the pieces that were on it and, amazingly, damaged the canvas, oops. So I grabbed a snippet of cheesecloth which I coloured with pink, red and a little green coloured inks and left to dry. I painted the chipboard heart with white gesso before using pink acrylic paint to colour it and left to dry. Once the fabric was dry I attached it to the canvas and waited for the glue to set. I grabbed my only Tim Holtz layering stencil and using a pallette knife put white gesso through the stencil – it’s amazing what you can create with paints and gesso, and I put that aside and left it to dry overnight.
I used a script stamp to add detail to the heart with a Cranberry Adirondack IP, left to dry, used Distress Stickles on all edges of the heart which has given a lovely subtle shine and texture to the heart, put aside to dry overnight.
Once the canvas was completely dry I used pink and red watered down acrylic paint to colour the fabric and white gesso. Finally got to stick it all together and I love it!
Created for me and especially for these Challenges:
I used paints, a stamp and stencils
