Hi everyone :). Hope you are well, wherever you are. I'm winding down after a long, hot, busy day to share with you a canvas that I created for the PaperHaus magazine blog.
"Love Art" Canvas
Now, I would definitely not call myself an artist- but I sure do love playing around with art :). As a child, I dreamed of becoming an artist; obviously that didn't happen, but it sure is nice to explore that early passion through this craft.
I don't think the love of playing with colors ever leaves us from childhood ;)
I've been playing around with my "messier" me. If you remember my works from about a year ago, I was much more unorganized in my projects- and sometimes, that can be liberating. Finding the balance between messiness and cleanliness isn't easy...but it's coming along :).
Doing collage work is awesome because you can literally just grab some scraps and go!
Would you like to see how I went about creating my background? If so, I've put together some steps for you...
**I personally love the catalog pages idea! Who doesn't have piles of that type of junkmail just laying around? I know I do...so nice to do something with it, right??**
**I used gel medium, although you can use gesso too**
**You don't have to use a palette knife. A credit card, scrap of paper, or your fingers works great as well**
