Canvas Inspiration with Trudi Harrison

Hi Colour Blast Fans!

Trudi back with you today sharing some more Colour Blast fun. This time I have a steam punk inspired canvas to share.  I really like adding colour and texture to canvas and chipboard elements with Colour Paste and Colour Shimmer Sprays.   

 To create the background, strips of patterned paper were fixed over the canvas.  White paint was added over the top with some masked detail added with a Prima Stencil and Snow White Colour Paste.
 Colour fun was intoduced with Colour Shimmer Sprays - Deep water Leather with a splash of Sunshine.
I also start by arranging a few of my elements of the design before affixing in place. 
As you can see, a few chipboard elements have been arranged with the face stamp image.

Chipboard elements were primed with a coat of white - I find this helps with colour absorption and the colour is more true.  

Colour shimmer was added over the top with Leather and Deep Water. The depth of colour was achieved by adding a few layers. Each colour layer was allowed to dry before adding the next.  

Chipboard chains and words were painted with Leather Colour Paste and accented with metallic gold paint.

A touch of texture and subtle accenting was added with Leather and Deep Water Colour Pastes - these were dabbed over some of the chipboard elements.
Deep Water Shimmer Spray was 'flicked' over clock metal elements by removing the nozel from the spray bottle.
Metal flowers were first painted white Deep Water accents - first with the colour spray and then colour paste was added the centres with a paint brush .
Shimmer Sprays are great for altering flowers - here I have used Leather to alter some of the blue flowers.  

Thanks so much for dropping by the Colour Blast blog today.
Till next time,
Happy Creating!
