|Nirvana Collection Canvas|
I had an Instagram Photo that I had taken of my Antique typewriter. I had added Font to it using fonts and designs from Rhonna Farrer. I then had it printed on a textured Cardstock which makes it look old and scratchy! I wanted this picture to be a part of the canvas and it worked perfectly with the collection Marion designed!
Here's my process:
|Start with a 8X8 canvas. I painted it with a combo of Ivory and Khaki paint that had been watered down.. Just wanted a light background texture.|
|I used an old McCalls pattern and added it on top of the painted canvas with Mod Podge. I crumpled it and coverd abot 3/4 of the canvas. Then I added some layers of white and ivory paint.|
|Once that dried, I added some light stripes of Watercolor. I love blending these colors and you can see I used some green, blues and yellows. This paint can be as dark or as light as you like! Set this aside to dry|
|My next watercolor went on some manilla tags . These I made in 3 different colors. They are dark on the edges fading to light.|
The papers from the collection I used were primarily these two!
|Another element I added was some metal frames and shapes.|
|Here is the placement of some more tags and LOVE that ruler!!!|
I am enjoying this in my home, and I hope this little tutorial will inspire you to go make some ART! Thanks for stopping by!!
