Hello Lindy’s Stamp Gang friends !
Stéphanie with you today to share with you this new project made for a special occasion, Father’s Day! I hope , he enjoys my work, i’m not sure about it, but I enjoyed making this for him, and that alone is great!
Here is a new mixed-media canvas. It’s actually five mini canvases glued onto a big canvas. It’s the first time that I create something like this, but I love dimension so much, that I wanted to try something different .
It’s also the first time that I worked on such a small area. I really enjoy to work on canvas because there is already texture on it, and the white colour of the texture is really beautiful.
I wanted to create a clean looking project. That’s why I worked on very small canvases, and left lots of white space on the big canvas. I just added some big tasks of gesso in the center so there is a touch of something different , but still avery clean look. I left my gesso dry 3 days long because it was very thick.
To begin my work, I prepared my five mini canvases with a very small collage of paper and gesso …
… stamped some stamps in black ink … and then added some Lindy’s!
I used different colours here and there on the five canvases. Then I applied a crackle texture paste with a stencil on the canvases.
Once again, I used a second texture paste, this time a glass bead paste, that I mixed with some ‘Art Sugar’ (Antique Silver) . It gave color to the project, texture, and shine all at the same time.
I then continued with other colours, small or bid drops of colors, some of the colours mixed together and I got a beautiful results.
Three of the five canvases are worked with metal embellishments.
I used acrylic glaze (silks) to paint on the metal embellishments.
On three of the canvaes I built metal layers to add dimension.
I added Lindy’s colours again and again. After that I glued the beads.
I added Lindy’s colours again and again, until I find that it’s enough, and I achieve the look that I want.
I hope that you find inspiration here to try to work on the mini canvases. It’s so much fun!
Remember to play with us with the colour challenge, as there still are some days left for you to share your work. You could maybe win a Lindy’s prize! Take a chance!
