Nice to be with you for this weeks little offering. This week it is a about small but perfectly formed haha
I made a 4x4 chunky canvas blank into a special little wall hanging using the one of the very special sentiment stamps as my focal point. It ended up looking a little vintage but I enjoyed the technique I used which was using a heavy bodied carvable paste coloured with ink and mica sprays to give it its rich tones, black lace and feathers always adds to the drama too.
So here is this weeks little offering for the fabby Visible Image.
For those of you who would like a how to make this just keep on reading.
I added a good amount to the front of this chunky canvas and simply using a palatte knife carved into it before drying with a heat gun, you can leave it over night if you refer and then you can sand the texture paste etc too if you would like a different effect. I wanted it to dry almost fabric looking so a little softer for this piece though.
This is the paste I used for reference.
So after drying you can see it has puffed a little and is now matt.
I used three different sprays two ink ones with no mica in a reddy tone and a chestnut brown and then a gold mica over spray gives it its shine. I dried each colour separately so the colours didn't look muddy.
I had some thin black lace in my stash so I added it in two layers facing each other on the sides. I used hot glue to attach it but you could easily use a fast drying wet glue also however tapes wont stand up to the heat gun too much and I reheated the top with sprays several times.
Next I used this gorgeous sentiment that I loved immediately entitled If you have hope.
I also added a little angle resin piece I had and added some classic treasure gold to the corners and the resin angel to pick out the features.
Here it is diagonally so you can see the light from a different angle.
So that's it folks it turned out really well and I enjoyed putting this one together.
I hope you like it, Let me know if you enjoy mixed media items and what you would like to make or decorate like this canvas or a box to cover etc
So have a wonderful Tuesday and thank you for stopping by
