Sorry about the lack of posts, end of schoolyear, crazy busy!

Made this set of canvases a while ago. I started out with two 12x12" scrapbook papers which I glued down with mat gel medium. I applied some gesso in turqoise acrylic paint and used a stencil and a brown archival ink and sponged through the stencil.
Then I took a circle stencil and some texture paste and added some circles here and there. I made sure that one circle overlapped both canvases in order to make the coherent. After drying I added a pearl acrylic medium to them. I used Distress ink to distress the edges of the canvases.
In order to add texture I added a flower arrangement to both canvasses. I used some Prima flowers and a Prima flower spray, The bird and birdcage were painted with a darkbrown acrylic paint and then covered with Distress Crackle paint.
On the right canvas I added a lovely butterfly I had once bought in a garden center. It matched the colours perfectly.
The crackle structure you see in the background was already in the print of the papers and that brown baroque like pattern you see is the one I stencilled on with Archival ink and a stencil (so it is not a stamp as you may think). Hope you like this one ladies. I haven't been round your blogs lately, so sorry and I'm afraid it will not get any better in the next few weeks. Another 2,5 weeks and then the summer holiday starts, can't wait! Hugs Frea

Zo dames, ook op dit blog weinig activiteit vanwege de einde schooljaar drukte, maar deze canvassen had ik een tijdje geleden al gemaakt. Een mooi moment dus om ze op mijn blog te zetten. De achtergrond bestaat uit twee vellen scrapbookpapier dat ik erop heb gelijmd met matte gel medium. Daarna heb ik hier en daar wat turqoise en taupekleurige verf aangebracht. Vervolgens heb ik met een stencil en bruine Stazon ook hier en daar een motiefje erop gesponsd. De ronde cirkels zijn gemaakt met een ander stencil en een reliefpasta en om de twee doeken op elkaar aan te laten sluiten heb ik één cirkel laten overlappen. Na droging heb ik daar wat parelmoer acrylmedium p[ aangebracht. De randen van de canvassen heb ik met Distress inkt bewerkt. Vervolgens heb ik wat bloemen van Prima flowers op beide canvassen aangebracht. Het vogeltje en vogelkooitje zijn van chipboard en heb ik eerst donkerbruin geverfd en vervolgens met Distress Crackle Paint bewerkt. De vlinder op het rechtse doek had ik eeuwen geleden eens bij Intratuin gekocht en past er precies bij qua kleur, dus die kwam nu goed van pas. Ik vind ze wel romantisch geworden, ben wel benieuwd wat jullie ervan vinden. Nog 2,5 week en dan begint de zomervakantie. Kan niet wachten!! Groetjes Frea
