I was busy this past weekend making some canvases. Now I haven’t edited them in photoshop or anything. They are straight from my iphone, as that is what was handy to me at the time.
I used the Scarlet Lime August mixed media kit. It was fun to play with. I didn’t use all of what we got, but I still love the outcome. I know I can make something else with the leftovers.
This is a 4×12 canvas. I used some dictionary paper for the background (you can’t see that at all) and then just made circles with paint and used india ink for outlines. Nothing special, but I had fun with the colors and just playing. One good thing with this canvas, it can be turned multiple ways and still look good.
This is an 8×8 canvas that I had used gelatos on the background a while ago, but then didn’t know where to go with it. It has sat on my table for over a month now and it just came to me to put a sailboat on it. I tend to do more “girly” canvases and it’s always a challenge to come up with something for boys. I had some real wood paper that I had gotten years ago and knew that I would use it some day. (I have hoarding tendencies with my stuff:) ) I thought it was perfect for the boat and used some scrap fabric for the sail. I think it turned out great, if I do say so myself.
