We still had a good time though and my lovely hubby finally did the Padi diving course and thoroughly enjoyed himself even though it was hard going at times!!!
This week I have created a canvas for Bubbly Scrumptious that is to be given as a christening present.
I have to say its just the most gorgeous baby pic so it was quite easy to create a piece of art around it :D
I painted the canvas with acrylic paint applied with a baby wipe - this is the first time I have tried painting like this and I love the effect. Its much softer than using a brush or a sponge and you can create nice swirly patterns in the paint.
When it was dry I inked the edges with frayed burlap distress ink.
I sanded the piece of die cut paper to soften the colour then ripped a couple of holes in to it. I curledthe edges back and inked with the distress ink, then stuck patches of scrap paper behind.
I highlighted the edges of the canvas and paperwith inka gold in old silver
I used Fancy Pants stamps and coffee archival ink to create swirls on the corners making sure itwent over the patterend paper to create depth.
I painted Ranger rock candy cracklepaint to one corner and blasted with my heatgun to create some texture,then inked with the archival ink pad.
I then added lace and flowers and spritzed with cosmic shimmer mist in copper.
I added prima canvas letters and a few buttons along with a mix of flowers to finish off.
Hope you like it and also the recipient,
