Spring Canvas

Hi, thanks for joining me today I am sharing a project I created for Spring for both Gina's Designs & Kraft Supplies 4 U.  This is a re-purposed canvas. It started out as one creation, of which I was not happy with, then this is the final creation.

Full view
Spring, the blue bird, & the water can where all colored then covered with colored glitter.

I had a great time creating this canvas, this canvas started out as a different project, first I used white gesso over the entire canvas, then using a heavy gel medium & the mixed media fragments 2, using the chipboard fragments as masks as both the positive & negative to create different elements on the canvas. After the elements dried I used different colors of color wash, from butterscotch, moss, blue, & red.  

Gina's Design Supplies Used:
Wood Wall Art - Winged Things
Mixed Media Fragments 2

Kraft Supplies 4 U Supplies Used:

Parchment Flowers
Large Birds
Lace appliques
Crochet Doily
Lavender butterflies
