Hello Friends ,
I am here to share a Burlap Canvas Mixed Media creation, This one turned out stunning and im loving it.
The agenda was to create an Anniversary table top creation on Canvas . I am good with layering and sense of layout but I needed to put this together in such a way that it's perfect for a couple, so the tricky part was to bring out the masculine and feminine touch and blend them well !!
This is how It all fell in place together, I am sharing a step by step process picture tutorial here .
To begin with I have used Burlap Canvas readily available at Itsy Bitsy .
I have next adhered 2 layers of paper scraps over it using the medium gesso .
Then I have used CHIPBOARDS SHAPES COGS elements on one end of the canvas and played with them. These elements bring in the meaning of mundane daily routines in the life of the couple .
I have used Gold alcohol spray to create the rustic look on the chipboard shapes.
I have adhered them on the canvas only after being confident as to where they belong !
Usually this process is what takes the longest. I directly do not paste them , I take time... take it slow ; take as many pictures as possible in different positions and finally only when I'm satisfied I paste it down . Sometime this process takes days !!
I have further gone with having the script stencilled on the other end of the canvas , Giving it a sense of many stories that we have been through and daily routines.Once the modelling paste dried completely after heating it with my Heat tool I took the next step .
I used brown colour ink to stamp the heart and the keys on the canvas , depicting the love and you are the key to my heart concept .
Next I have used dried flowers in yellow bringing back some sunshine in life ! I have added a Photo mat to it using double sided foam tape .The photo mat is a sticker backing with vintage look perfect for this creation and further I have added a swirl chipboard embellishment.Here again I have used gold alcohol spray to colour it . Lastly I have added chipboard elements silver heart and number 2 element. I have finished the canvas with a quote from Technique tuesday stamp set .
I have further adhered this canvas to a Easel making it a table top Burlap canvas mixed media creation that rests on the receivers table !
This creation is very close to me with very interestingly elements and each one having its own story to tell !
I am soo glad that this was also received well , making it a perfect anniversary gift from Recounting memories from the day they met , their journey of falling in love to anniversaries.
