Today I am up on the Memory Maze blog and have created a canvas for you. This depicts a heart closed in, embraced and restrained by elements. I have used my favourite colour - purple and green as an earth tone.
I adhered them with 3D Matte gel. Once dried I gave everything a coat of black gesso. I didnt placed the Prima Diamond Stones onto the piece until last.
Once the two coats of black gesso were dry, I coloured some white Prima wire with Dylusions Spray Ink - black marble and wrapped it around the canvas panel.
I began with my colours. I have used the following colours:
Prima Mica Powder - Lilac Opal Magic, Green and Gold.
Prima Acrylic Paint Sparks - Dragons Eye, Iris Potion and Raven Black.
Dylusions Spray Ink - Black Marble
Art Alchemy Metallique Wax - Vintage Gold
I just kept layering the colours, drying in between and layering some more until I was happy with the result.
I have then sprayed the canvas panel in areas where I wanted to sprinkle glitter with a spray fixitive and added Finnabair glitter.
Here are some close ups:
and the chipboard pieces that I have used:
Thanks for stopping by and til next time - Happy Crafting :)
