‘Love is all you need’

imageI was delighted to come in the top three in the Indigoblu December blog challenge. They have kindly asked me to do a piece for their February challenge – ‘Love is all you need’ For today’s project I’ve made a 12 x 12 mixed media canvas featuring stamps, stencils, papers,pastes and of course the lovely luscious powders from Indigoblu .

The materials: 12×12 flat canvas; 2 mdf hearts;

The Method:

Mix the luscious powder with the extra thick ‘slap it on’to make a paste to put through the stencil. Stick the image and paper to the mdf. Stencil over the top and highlight with ink when dry.

Prepare canvas and smaller heart with gesso.

Paint and crackle heart. Ink later when dry.

When dry spray again to build up the colour. To increase the texture stamp and stencil further layers and enhance with ink when dry. Finally splatter with gold and white paint.

Stamp and colour the butterfly  with luscious powder. Colour snip art borders in green. Assemble the elements adding mesh, frayed bandage and thread to add texture and interest.
