Hi and welcome. Just a quick post tonight, showing you a canvas I have just finished for:
http://archiscraps.blogspot.com.au/ where the challenge for January is based on a photo of Sydney's spectacular Opera House. The added criteria is to add something musical.
For this, black gesso was painted onto the canvas and when dried spritzed with glimmer mists. the fireworks were drawn on with metallic inks, kindy glitz and liquid pearls.
The photo I've used for this piece has come from a public domain site and depicts the Opera House on New Year's Eve. This has been mounted on paper put through a music embossing folder. The edges were torn and smooshed with 3D stamping paint. The music staff and fluoro notes were a set of stickers bought years ago and forgotten about. Amazing what a good tidy up discovers! These were also smooshed with the 3D stamping paint for a touch of glimmer.
Extra bits and pieces include a metal spiral, a metal badge made up of various musical instruments, star-shaped paper clips , fluoro ribbon added to one of the firework bursts and plastic stars. Other musical notations have been put on with a foiling technique, liquid pearls and metallic inks.
At the moment I really love creating with canvas, because of the versatility with what can be done with them.
Thank you for stopping by. Your visits and lovely comments are always appreciated.
