9x12 Mixed Media /Grateful Heart
Happy Wednesday-hump day!
I am excited to share with you a new -favorite- canvas I did.
I brayed a couple of Americana acrylic paint colors on the canvas. Had to go back over the ones I really wanted to show up good (especially the red).
Then I sprayed black spritzer thru the stencil. Did you know DecoArt also sells stencils??!!
They have some awesome ones to choose from.
Then I used warm white acrylic paint thru another DecoArt stencil (French Words). Shows up so well.
The heart I hand drew on a piece of watercolor paper-I really wanted a thicker piece to DecoArt decoupage on my canvas. I used my brayer for the heart as well. After several coats and layering, the paper started pulling up a little-really added to the texture. To finish the heart, I went around the edges with black gelato & I dry brushed cream acrylic paint in the curves. I really love how it turned out.
I used a white Posca pen to write the sentiment.
