Hi everyone - I am back to today to share my second creation as guest designer this month. Many thanks for the lovely comments I received for my beach hut canvas.
Today is similar but different! Yes another reverse canvas but a different theme and colour scheme. This is also a much larger canvas - around 12 x 9 inches. I started by applying texture paste around the frame and inside through a couple of stencils.
I then added various purple paints - first by spritzing with water and allowing to drip, then using a baby wipe to move where I wanted a little more and then finally with my fingers if I had missed bits! Once dry I added some stamping to the background using archival ink and a brick stamp.
I painted the ATC and border, the corner flourishes and bird on vine with the same paints - I make sure I get some variation in colours - rather than one flat colour. I added some gilding wax in places to highlight.
My finishing touches included a little gilding wax over some of the texture in the background and on the frame, some fibres under the ATC , a bird cage die cut and some little flowers to add focus to the ATC.
I have the opportunity to sell some of my craft sometimes in a local shop and I managed to get this one in last week just before our shop closed again for a while - it sold within a couple of days which doesn't happen too often! I hope you like it too.

It has been a pleasure being a guest here this month - thank you.
