Just messing about

Well I bought some canvases from Hobbycraft yesterday.....my mom says what you going to do with those? Erm not sure I say....just mess about.....so here is what I have created on the first one.....


So I started off by using some grunge paste (love this already it's thicker than other texture pastes I have so I think it might be using this a lot!) through some stencils, then I sprayed some dylusions and added some paper artsy fresco paints (mostly from the limited edition JOFY set I just got - ace colours) and then also added some definition over the texture paste with some peacock feathers distress ink. Oh I also tried out the technique from paper artsy of stamping into the grunge paste with my tiny little lavinia stars. Not sure if you can it from the picture but it's in the squares on the top right.

Next I used clear texture paste (creative expressions) over the spodge away owl in a tree mask; and then some more grunge paste through the moon stencil from the same splodge away set. Once dried I added some mustard seed distress ink to the moon and also some gold gilding wax. I also used black distress ink around the tree to highlight the owl.

I then mixed some more grunge paste with black paint and used the mountain mask from the same splodge away set to get the mountain in the bottom corner.

I then stamped on the bird (tim holtz) and the fairies (lavinia) and the trees (paper artsy jofy) and the ivy (lavinia). I used paper artsy fresco metallic glaze on the bird and fairy wings. I also stamped some stars with silver distress paint.

I added some stampendous fragments and some other glitter in the bottom corners. I highlighted a few areas with white gel pen. I added some distress ink around the edge. Then I finished it all off with silver gloss paint to highlight the edge, the mountain and a few others spots. I drew on the little birds on the moon. I think the moon is my favourite part.
