So, here’s something that’s way out of my comfort zone on ALL levels:
1 – Canvas
2 – The major use of the color Orange
3 – Rub Ons
I’ve never done a piece of canvas before. I started by picking my picture. This particular picture was taken over 4 years ago – but it’s long been a favorite of mine – it’s me (in the middle), my best friend Melissa, and our friend LeRoy. It’s a great picture of all of us and shows what a great time we were having that particular weekend.
I painted the canvas with MM acrylic paint (orange) mixed with Pearl glaze. Then the green flourishes are actually one huge rub on.
I added the circles as mats for the photo. The word friends is made with my Cricut – cut from vinyl! I’ve had vinyl for my Cricut for a couple of months, but haven’t found a reason to use it – until now.
I’m really pleased with how this turned out and will definitely be working with canvas again soon.
