I’ve been working on my week 4 project and decided to do a canvas. I was partially inspired by May Flaum and by instructor Jenn Mason who taught a great out of the box class working on black gesso. I was fairly pleased with how this came out as it was my very first canvas. One of the things I did that I wouldn’t do again is cover the focal embellishment with Matte Medium. You can see that it didn’t dry clear, which shocked me so there are little white clumps that look funny in closeup. I also had some odd reaction with the spray paints – the orange “broke”. Kind of like oil and water. Not sure what happened.
The products used were: Liqutex Spray Paints, Liquitex fluid ink in Deep Purple & Naphthol Crimson, FW Pearlescent by Daler Rowney in Genesis Green, Molotow Markers in White, Black and Grey, Dina Wakely Paint in Blackberry Violet, Stencils from Heidi Swapp (hearts) and Club Scrap (sentiment), rub-ons, Tim Holtz grunge hearts, Rose from I am Roses, wire and metal from stash.
