 Hi Bee Arty friends ....  We are now in lockdown again but let's make the time to create some amazing art.

Today I am sharing a canvas I did last year using lots of mixed media products.  

Bee Arty Products used in this project:

Other products used:
  • Collage papers - Assorted Gel print papers, coloured photo of myself 
  • permanent water colour pencil in dark blue
  • Fiber paste
  • texture paste
  • gel matt medium
  • pink paint
  • plastic bag
Tear the gel print and photo paper into similar width strips.

Glue torn strips of paper to cover the whole canvas.  Cover the page with a coat of white paint or Gesso to a translucent finish.

Mix the Colour paste - Licorice paste with some Shimmer dust –  Duke.  I also added some fiber paste to the mixed to make a heavily textured paste, but this can be omitted if you haven't any.  Apply the mix thickly through the Face Side Profile 2 - A4 Stencil.  

Mix a  good quantity of texture paste with black Gesso, add some black paint if the colour isn't dark enough for you.  Spoon the paste into the plastic bag, snip a corner of the bag then pipe the texture paste to form the hair line and strands of hair.
Pipe a lace trim along the bottom edge of the portrait silhouette.

Mix some pink paint with texture paint then apply paste through the Flux A6 stencil stencil around the outer edge of the canvas.  Outline around the edges with permanent water colour pencil (dark blue), then add some water to the pencil outline to blend some shading to the stencil.

Thank you for stopping by and hope you are inspired to have a go at creating a canvas for yourself .... enjoy the Easter break 
Your Creative Palette
