And now, let's move on to the pics of my project for you to check out:
I used a 4 3/4" x 7" canvas board and I using my Recollections spray inks in a shimmery green and blue to add color to the background.
Next I move on to some stamping to add texture to the background.
I used some images from a couple of different Autumn Leaves stamp sets and my Memento Mixed Media ink.
I followed that up by stamping some text using my Hero Arts "Art is Life"stamp.
I then used my heat tool to set the ink and set it aside to work on my image.
For the image, I used my alcohol inks to color her in and here's a rundown of the colors I used:
-Skin- E00, E11, E13, R52
-Hair- E74, E18, E29
-Dress- Conda brand markers from Hobby Lobby in: 72P, 75P, Gold gel pen, CG22
-Leave- GY83, GY106
-Flower- V20, V25
With the image all colored in, I fussy cut her out and adhered her to the background using my tape runner.
Then to add some shading around the image, I used my Faber Castell Big Brush marker in Black, smudging the ink as I applied it.
Next, I decided to add some more flowers for added dimension, arranging them on the canvas and painting them using black paint.
Once they were dry, I used my Recollections spray ink in a shimmery purple to tone it down and add extra sparkle.
To finish he canvas off, I added blue rhinestones to the flowers centers, pearls to her crown, and a few butterflies I punched using some leftover black card stock.
Lastly, I added chipboard letters to create my sentiment, "Be True" making sure to add a white highlight to each letter.
And voila! Canvas complete!
I hope you enjoyed this project for today!
