Firstly I sprayed the top of my canvas with water before spraying each colour individually, to make each run down the canvas the way I wanted I sprayed extra water if needed. When dry I turned the canvas and using a spatula I smeared modelling paste over my newest stencil.
The next layers added were the strips of washi tape which I softened with white gesso and the mounted selfie photo of Fiona and I took on one of our cheese and wine nights onto paper from the 6"x 6" papers and a piece of torn dictionary paper from the Mix'd media staz2 collection (I used 'London Blue' to colour the edges).
The cork heart and chevron arrows were painted with Dylusions ink 'Postbox Red'/ 'Black Marble'. As the with the word 'Duo' after covering it with white gesso first to ensure the brightness and same effect as the background. When the heart was dry I covered it with Glitter Ice Stickles.
To finish off the canvas I traced around the heart and word with the Sharpie marker adding squiggles etc.
Thanks for coming over to check out my canvas, this was my first ever canvas and I thoroughly enjoyed making it and look forward to doing my next one.
