Hello and welcome you all to my blog. This time I have tried to create a canvas using shells which I love and also wanted to add lot of elements to it.
First I gessoed the entire canvas. Then I did some stencil work using texture paste. I used the Bloom Silhouettes stencil from Artploration also I used another stencil from crafter's workshop. Towards the lower side I stuck the shells with 3d gel medium. I also used some buttons, a lock and a key, metal flowers, time clogs, a clock etc. Then I gessoed it all again . Then I painted it with acrylic paints metallic green, bronze, inka gold . I also used perfect pearl to it.To the wooden chipboard I applied Egyptian Gold, after it dried I stamped it with walnut distress ink with scripture stamp. I wanted the canvas to have a few hanging embellishments . For that I made metal chain and attached a bottle filled with glitter to it. I also used a key , a bird's cage, a heart to it. I cant show in the picture as to how lovely these embellishments look but it has given a different dimension to the canvas. I wanted to add a fairy but dropped the idea. Finally adorned it with bling and handmade paper
flowers .Hope you all like it.
