Today is a shiny day here in my hometown Bergen in the world's most wonderfull country, Norway. And just because it is a shiny day I made a shiny canvas :-) This is a Mixed Media Canvas,
23 x 8 cm.
|TO DO LIST: 1. Learning to fly|
2. Fly away
I painted with gesso over it, let it dry before I painted with Dylusions paint in the colors of turquoise, pink, green and orange using baby wipe.
Then I used a stencil and black Dylusions paint and painted the words To do list using Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool.
I also used the stencil to apply the number 1 and 2, and so I used my black pen and wrote for freehand; Learning to fly and Fly away.
I stamped the gorgeous Rubber Dance butterflies on my homemade Design paper made from newspaper, gesso and Dylusions Ink. You can read more about my homemade design paper and much more in my post for Rubber Dance Skandinavian Blog now coming Sunday, September 6th. Be sure not to miss that post.
'Then I took a stencil called Dot Matrix and inflicted little dots here and there With a mini sponge.
I applied Glitter Glaze on all the butterflies with a small brush and then placed them on the canvas with such 'small adhesive pads
Glitter glaze was simply ingenious, the butterflies got a lovely sheen.
I hope you enjoyed my To do list and that I gave you the inspiration to create some art, perhaps on canvas, in your Art Journal or maybe a card.
Please, write a few words to me so I know you're out there. All comments are appreciated.
Come back soon! I will. Until then - let your creative thoughts fly.
