I settled on the vertical line "Green, Flowers and Swirls". I wanted to finish the canvas that I started at the retreat a couple of weeks ago. My thanks go to Neil Walker for his class and inspiration ...I now have more confidence to use canvas.
Here was the canvas when I got it home :
I wanted to have a go at making a more feminine piece but still quite grungy. Here is my finished project.
I blended Crushed Olive and Peeled paint distress inks over the canvas and paste to change the colours.
The skirt on my dress makers form is made from glassine paper. I absolutely love the stuff!! I die-cut the oval petals then embossed in a Cuttlebug folder. Then I wiped over with a gold ink pad to highlight the embossed flowers.
The flower was text pages from an old book using the tattered floral die. I sprayed the flowers with some Starburst stains to colour and shimmer before building up.
And of course I just had to add a dragonfly as my signature (it's either a bird or a dragonfly) to finish off.
