Hi crafty Friends,
I was so excited to put some of Reneabouquest Beautiful Board Chipboard together to create a canvas. Beautiful Board is so thick, I knew it would create deep shadows, which would show it's detail, and add depth and texture.
I started by gessoing the empty canvas. Then decoupaged some torn up old book pages over the whole thing. I added some lace in spots over that. Then gessoed another light coat over everything.
Then the fun began with Beautiful board Bricks. I used 2 sizes of bricks. I put some book page pieces over a few of the bricks themselves. And some of the bricks I didn't set all the way back into their frame (or mortar). I left sticking them up a bit.
Then Ivy Vine Flourish and Ivy Vine Flourish 2.
Reneabouquets Trim-Sheer Romance Lace - White, Ivory Wild Roses, Gardenia & Leaves Flower Set, Prima marketing Art Ingredients - Art Stones and a couple of metal filigree pieces (I had painted white).
I die cut a frame from a canvas sheet to put the picture of this sweet boy in. I covered the picture before I sprayed the whole thing with a warm brown tea stain spray ink. And went over it all again with a dry brush of gesso.
Thank you for stopping by to look!
