I decided to create an Autumnal Canvas and it was quite a long process!
I began by gessoing an 8x12" canvas. I then used masking fluid randomly to create an irregular border. I brayered on red acrylic paint and knocked it back with white.
I then put my first layer of stamps on using a mixture of Dylusions Paper Artsy and Tim Holtz stamps, letting them dry and then layering them up.
I added colour and white highlights using Faber Castell Gelatos and a Pitt Big White pen.
I used stencils to add texture paste and stamped on top of it. I added a postage stamp image from an old book and also an amaretto biscuit wrapper (!) I then used white and black pens to doodle and added the odd Swarovski crystal.
I cut the moths (well butterflies) using the Tim Holtz Texture Fade Bigz Dies, and then embossed them. They were painted with distress inks and embossed with distress embossing powder. I rubbed Walnut Stain ink around the edges and then used a matt Mod Podge and distress glaze on them.
After fixing them to the canvas I rubbed the masking fluid off to reveal the white edges.
I hope you like it!
