Canvas

First Day of Spring

Lynda's Canvas 2

“Where flowers bloom so does hope” – Lady Bird Johnson. Daffodils are my favorite flower and they are just starting to poke through the still frozen ground in the garden closest to the house. The rest of the yard is still inches deep with snow, but I have hope we will soon be seeing green! I created this on a 17″x13″ canvas board gifted to me by a friend. I started with collage, using a bunch of scraps of painted papers in my stash, then layered with acrylic and chalk paints and stencils. Drew and painted my daffodil and girl, then painted over the busy background. I framed it in with Paper Artsy chalk paints through a stencil and smeared a Distress Crayon over the edges. Love all the underlying texture!

Collaged napkin pieces and dictionary page scraps onto a canvas page in my Dina Wakley Media Journal.  Added a photo of a hawk that has been nesting in our back yard. Used Dina Wakley Media Scribble Sticks in Sky and Lapis and some scribbling with a Stabilo All pencil.

Joy of Art – Magenta DT Post

With the holiday season fast approaching, I start to stress about all the details and deadlines that are looming. Today, I was reminded of the philosophy of a dear friend, “May you die young at a very old age”, which she accomplished at 96 years. I thought back to my youth and how much I loved to finger paint and began to play!

Magenta Post 11-21

First, I applied gesso to four small 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ canvases. I, then, added acrylic paint with my fingers.

Next, I used several stencils and colors of acrylic paints to add layers. Be sure to dry between layers.

I also added some stamping.

Then, I used the flower mask and applied purple acrylic paint to all surfaces not protected by the mask.

I outlined the masked area with white pen, then stamped and embossed the sentiment.

These could be a gift for someone special. One item checked off the list!
