Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.
The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it. It's part of packaging. The initial C I purchased from Joanne's.
The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.
The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish. Really nice.
The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly.
I painted the C in black premium acrylic. Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue.
I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.
I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers. I like to use both. Hot glue helps it stick instantly, but the tacky glue keeps it in place forever!
