My first canvas

Here's my first ever canvas.

PLEASE CLICK ON THE PIC FOR A BETTER LOOK AND MORE VIBRANT COLOURS.



I loved doing this! Getting really messy and just going for it!! Think I'll be doing a lot more!

Ok after much questioning of people I decided to gesso the canvas first. I then stuck bits of Papermania paper over the dried gesso and used a medium gel to apply it.I then sprayed a little water over the canvas and applied Dylusions inks letting them run a little. After that was dry I applied more gesso through a spotty mask and went over it with some white dabber. I then stamped various images in black colouring the poppy heads in with red pastel. Next came the white pen to add all the highlights and dots. And then the She Art collage pieces which I again applied with the medium gel.They looked a bit fresh and new so I smooshed over some of the dylusion inks to blend them in with the background. Oh the bird and branch are a Marianne Designs die. Finally the words which came with the she art collage. I cut them out and went around them with walnut distress ink. Think that's everything!!
