I am using two different stencils on this mixed media canvas, one is taken from Jill K. Berry's Map Art Series. I am using the small rose from the Global Compass Rose stencil. The other stencil I'm using is from TCW, it is called Raindrops (TCW 400). I have several canvases that I was not happy with the original work I did on them, so I just painted over that and started again. I bought some of Dina Wakley's new Heavy Body Acrylic Paint last week and I've been anxious to try it out. The color I painted on the discarded canvas is her Blackberry Violet color and I must say it is gorgeous, it has a really nice texture to it. Here is the finished canvas and then I have a short tutorial showing how I did this in the event that you're interested.
Then I used a stencil called Raindrops with white gesso, I applied the gesso with a paint brush.
. I lifted the stencil straight up to keep the design clean. When I finished I made sure to wash the gesso off of the stencil and also out of the paintbrush right away.
I used the Rose stencil from Jill's new series and stenciled just the small rose with Modeling Paste.
This canvas became a little surreal when I turned it upright and then attached the digital art from Hidden Vintage Studios at DeviantScrap.com.
I sponged a small amount of black acrylic paint over the roses and around the edges of the canvas. I attached a piece of black twine to the balloon and it is finished. The entire canvas measures 7 1/2" by 9 1/2".
