Today, in a (for once) lovely sunny corner of Kent, UK. I am bringing you wo mixed media canvases I was working on earlier in the week when playing along with http://creativeartistemixedmedia.blogspot.co.uk
They both started out in the same manner.. a layer of gesso, sometexture paste through a stencil and then painted with another layer of gesso.
I added lots, and lots, of embellishments, shells, an octopus charm and other sea related items on the blue one and flowers, metal charms egtc on the peachy gold one. I used Prima Gloss translucent gel on both to adhere them to the backgrounds..one a mini canvas and one a large chipboard heart.
Once the glue had dried I painted all the elements and sprayed and misted them until I was happy with the colours.
To finish off I I added some gold wax to the 'Deep Blue' one and then added tiny white hightlights to the 'Love' one.
Here they are on my desk before I added all the colour to them
I love doing thesebut not sure what use they are, so I will keep making them..but I'm not actually sure what I am actually going to do with them? Any ideas?
