Enjoy the Journey Mixed Media Canvas
Good evening everyone. I am here with a project I made for my male best friend who loves bikes. Sometimes it can be hard to create for men but I really enjoyed making this :)
I started with a small plain canvas, wooden bike embellishments, printable canvas, texture paste, stencils, spray inks, water, some clear stamps, embossing powder and stazon.
I began by gluing strips of torn paper for a mixture of textures on the plain canvas. I let this dry.
Next I started stamping onto the canvas with stazon-I used some texture stamps and also some 'sewing stitches' stamps. Because of the different levels on the canvas it gave the wonderful 'messy' look I was imagining.
I then got out my spray inks and water and spritzed over the canvas-in some areas rubbing the colour into the canvas and in others leaving the 'spray' look of the ink. I did this in stages to get good coverage until I was happy.
I decided I wanted some more texture so I got out my texture paste and some stencils. I smeared this on in a messy fashion. Next I sprinkled some blue embossing powder onto areas of the paste where I wanted a different look and set with a heat gun.
I then embellished with a digital sentiment printed onto canvas using serif Craft Artist software, a pin badge and a bright yellow penny farthing bike.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
