I’ve been itching to do a mixed media canvas for some time now, especially since I’ve been so focused on Project Life the last few months. So, yesterday I finally got to it, with no idea as to what I wanted to do.
It’s was the first time for me using a canvas board. Definitely a different experience to regular canvas and paper! I loved the coarse texture for the texturing part, but it was a lot harder to draw and paint on! Initially I missed the “give” of the canvas or paper that I am used to.
Since I am using a lot of pearl mists and iridescent paint, it’s hard to photograph the board and get in undistorted impression, but many different angles will eventually give you a full picture!
I am only vaguely clear as to where this one is going at this point, but I’m having so much fun with it right now and I peeled mod podge, paint and gesso off my fingers with relish last night!
I think I feel some wire elements coming on for the free spaces. Interestingly enough I only realized later, that I’ve been gravitating toward very similar colors as this little canvas I made quite a while ago, that also had wire art in it. Hmmm, guess I wasn’t done with that phase just yet!
This is how far I got last night - I am curious to see where this is going next!
What are you working on right now?Pin It
