Good morning to you all
As this posts, I will be getting ready for my first day at my new job eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!!!!!
I am sure I will be fine.
Today's creation is something I have wanted to play at for sometime, and I needed to make a present for my old boss for being so fabulous, we worked so well together over the two years, so I could not think of anything better to make for her.
I have never done any mixed media canvasses before and have had my canvasses for probably the full two years I worked with her, that they needed a dust before I got started.
I found them when I had my clear out.
Okay so here it is, I hope you like it
I had great fun with my spritzers and my texture paste through my stencils. I found this little heart in the Range and added a sentiment to it before adding lots of flowers, wooden things, metal things an old necklace, charms bling well actually anything I could find, some of them are from SSS. I used my new glue gun to glue them all in place and once dry I coated everything in gesso, I love how it softened the pinks and greens from the original spraying. I then used my distress ink re inkers and painted the flowers in several colours before adding some guilding wax in silver to all the alternative embellies to make them stand out. I covered the whole lot with a layer of decoupage lacquer in matt and I am thrilled with it.
Here are some closeups

Will be creating some more for my bedroom walls I think
