Hello, it's Liesbeth here for the last time this week! Let's finish the canvas we started yesterday.
I did the same background- technique as the card of the first day this week: I applied some drops of Fresco Finish onto the craft sheet. I used Hey Pesto, Yellow Submarine and Inky Pool.
I sprayed (much) water onto the paint and pressed a piece of Smoothy White Stamping Card into it. Dried it with my heat gun.
I inked the woman stamp (LPC029) and pressed the Eclectica shape circle upside down on here face , an easy way to be sure to stamp her face in the centre. I stamped some some text (LPC028) onto the stem.
I coloured both pieces with Fresco Finish Inky Pool and Yellow Submarine and some colour pencils for the face.
I cut out pieces and bits, and small arches from the houses, I used my fantasy, not as big as the houses really are, smaller...very tiny here and there! I hope the photo's show what I mean :-)
I cut the bottom side of the houses a round shape so they'll fit at the circle later.
I glued the circle and stem onto the canvas and added the houses and arches to the circle by using 3d foam tape, to make a flower.
From the left overs of the painted paper, I cut out some stamped (houses) circles and glued them onto the canvas. I finished the flower and the edges of the canvas by applying some Treasure Gold Renaissance, I just used my finger for this.
I put a piece of blue metal wire, with two glass beads, through the holes and bent a heart.
The finished piece!
See you next month, thanks for joining in!
Leandra Says: Beautifully finished Liesbeth! The paint spots and water technique is so vibrant, a real testament to how fabulous Fresco Chalk Acrylics are, even when diluted
Gillian Says: Genuis ... love how you have created such depth/dimension to this canvas. The centre piece is striking. Thanks for a great week of inspiration.
