half the year is gone - unbelievable!
As usual on 1st of the month there is a new challenge over at Country View Challenges. This time it´s called "Do more of what makes you happy", hosted by the lovely Sue.
I love to make canvases in mixed media style with lots of different materials, mediums, layers.
Here is my canvas.
I made this canvas for my mom to her 80th birthday, she wished me to make a layout for her - well, of course I made one.
First I put modeling paste through a stencil from finnabair on top of the canvas. painted everything with Gesso and colored the background with acrylic paints.
For the layers I used a small chipboard panel, I painted with white crackle paint, resin pieces, made with moulds, chipboard gears, a chipboard clock face, a piece of lace, also made with a mould and light modeling paste and pink flowers.
The gears I painted with rust effect paste, the clock face I painted with black Gesso and aged it with white Gesso.
The flowers are decorated with some glitter for more interest.
And last but not least I glued down a sentiment which says: "How the time flies". I found it fits to a 80th birthday and to the photo with the pretty pocket watch from the internet.
Now I am curious, what you will show us and what makes you happy!
Have a sunny July!
