Hi everyone - Summer's back today!
I've been at it with the Brushos again. I have these great small canvasses - I like them as they are not as daunting to start on as the larger ones.
The first thing I did was cut a piece of white tissue paper large enough to cover the canvas, then I sprinkled various colours of the Brusho Paints & spritzed really well with water. I left this to dry over night.
Once this was dry I crumpled the tissue up & opened up. Applied Mod Podge to the canvas & applied the tissue to the canvas adding a few more creases & crumples as I went. This was left to fully dry.
I went over the canvas with Inka Gold to highlight the creases.
I decided I wanted an image so I stamped the large image onto tissue paper using distress inks, tore carefully around the image, applied Mod Podge to the canvas & carefully applied my tissue image, being careful not to smudge the distress inks.
While this was drying I stamped various images around the rest of the canvas - I used black Archival for this but stamped off the canvas first to give a shadow image. I coloured these images with DI.
Added a bit more of the Inka Gold, some lace to the top & an embellishment with a button.
Hope you like it.
Thanks for stopping by.
