Remember

Hello everyone, and a big welcome. It's lovely of you to visit me today as I have some exciting news to share.  As well as a canvas.

First the news, I was approached and of course said yes, to being a featured artist on Altered Pages. You can see it on the 19th May.

Next,  I have a quicky post. it would  be far too boring if I were to talk you through all the different transformations this painting has had. I started it before Christmas and have thrown it several times. However, what inspired me to pick it back up and rework some of it, was the new theme over on the Paper Artsy Challenge blog which is Sprays. I'm entering this canvas into the the challenge. 

All the colour on the canvas is Media Mist, either sprayed straight onto the canvas or onto the craft sheet so I could mix the colours for the flowers and brush it on.


I've shown some photos of the different stages. It was all based on this journal page I created a while back. My mum loved it! So the idea came to create her something similar to hang in her new Lounge, as she had just moved.


The canvas I used was 30x30 inches. I started with Media Misters from DecoArt in the blues and greens 



I continued to play until I got to the picture below. I love this picture and would have left it somewhere around now, but it was for Mum and I know she would prefer something more flowery similar to the journal page.



I stencilled grunge paste through a Lin Brown Stencil from Paper Artsy.



After many changes this is the finished picture. First some close ups 


                                







Mum was very pleased. I hope you like it too.

Well that's it for tonight time for bed. Sending big hugs to you all, take good care

  9. Like you I loved the background and would have stopped there in fear of obliterating it! Still, it's a background, so it just has to be done.... and those flowers look wonderful on it!
