It is a beautiful SUNNY (for a change) day here on the west coast :-) Got lots of chores to attend to, but that can wait for a few minutes ;-)
Got this much wanted WALL ART, but where, oh where shall I put it!!!????
So after weeks of pondering, I decided to put my Wall Art onto a canvas so I can move it around to my liking ;-)
· A 16x16 inch Primed Stretched Canvas
· Gesso Paste
· Acrylic Paints : 3 different Pinks and white
· Tim Holtz Tissue Paper : Terminology and Composer
· Tim Holtz Distress Inks : Aged Mahogony and Walnut Stain
· Permanent Markers : White and Gold
· Enmarc Craft Products used:-
o Wall Art : Scrapbooking Supplies
o A4 Doodling Stencil

o Petal Blooms : Large - Burgundy
o White Board Chippies:-

§ Swirls & Flourishes : Twisted Heart Swirl
§ Dress-me-Up : Bigger Corners No 7
o Dazzles : Chocolate Eclaire, Poison Ivy, Anthracite, Cranberry, Avocado and Mystic Olive
· LOTS and LOTS of FLOWERS that I now don’t need to hide anymore . . . LOL
I first added another layer of gesso to the canvas to smooth the surface as I wanted to stick down the Wall ART. I then painted it with a bright pink and toned it down with an old rose which was toned down further with white.
I then pasted down torn pieces of the tissue paper with Mod(ge) Podge. Another layer of a lighter shade of old rose was painted on top of the tissue paper.
After it was dry, I used the Doodling stencil and sprayed the canvas with Chocolate Eclaire Dazzles and dabbed the Dazzles with Art Roll.
I also used the Edge Stencil : Funky Scallops with Poison Ivy Dazzles which I dabbed with Art Roll.
Then the FUN part started ;-) Doodling with Permanent Markers in White and Gold. Then the tricky part. . . the Wall Art!!
I used the Tim Holtz Distress Inks on the edges of the canvas.
Aaaaah, and then ALL the flowers and chippies. I sprayed the Chippies with Anthracite Dazzles and glazed it.
