Today a few of us from SNC wanted to spread some cheer with some ‘springy’ projects. It is nothing like Spring here in Newfoundland. In fact, our weather is more like Winter, and we are calling it ‘Sprinter’. So let me tell you, I really need some ‘Spring’ cheer!
I can’t wait to see some Spring flowers, so I am sharing a couple flower canvases I did this past week.
Donna Downey recently released a free video tutorial of a beautiful canvas. So I followed along with the video and made this!
I started out by creating a bunch of messy layers using acrylic paint, some stencils and finally gelatos. This is what it looked like. Isn’t it yummy! I almost didn’t want to cover it up, but onward I went!
Next I cut a bunch of circles out of cardstock and scattered them over the canvas. (Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of this step). Then I sprayed the canvas with black Mister Huey’s and removed the circles. Next it was time for the flower. Donna Downey used a flower stencil, but I don’t have one, so I drew a picture of one and cut it out. Then I traced over it with a white Uniball pen.
I took off the paper and painted it in with gesso.
Once that was dry, I went over it with white modelling paste, and then painted the stem.
I like the way it turned out!
And this is what we made! Fun right?!
