Hello, I thought I should pop in and let you know I have not given up on crafting, giggle! Life is so full and wonderful I just have not been in the craft room much and now of course, it needs cleaning before I can get crafty. Welllllll, I went to a crop and this is the first time eva that I started and finished a canvas or project for that matter. Yippy Skippy for me! I used all South Ridge Trading Company chipboard. Since the first thing I have thought of doing this spring is camping and fishing, I thought it fitting to enter the Spring Challenge at Southern Ridge Trading Company. Here is the layout, getting ready to get painted and inky!
I added the sun, grass, Sentiment, splotches and dragonfly by using stencils and gesso.
I painted the whole piece with gesso then added yellow gelato to the gesso and painted the sun and rays.
I added blue gelato to the gesso and voila!
I did the same with the rest of the piece by adding brown, green, then added white gelato mixed with water over the lettering. I rolled cotton gauze, added gesso then cut it to fit for the rope on the fence of the dock, hat band and chair. I added feathers to to the flies and wire for fishing line. I added clear crackle to give the dock and water some texture and shine, I used stickers to add the name above the Gone Fishing sign. My husband loved it and we plan to put it in the travel trailer. Thanx for stopping by.
