New Canvas

Afternoon All

 Today I have a canvas to show you, this is mixed media and decoupage.

I first used gesso and left the brush marks showing than torn scraps of paper and added randomly on the canvas adding layer of pale blue paint over the top. I decoupaged a flowered serviette on each side.

I did added a sun in the left corner but did not like it so I went over the top with layers of paint so it would still leave the out line but not the yellow. I added gorse to the canvas then another layer of paint but not very thick I still wanted the gorse to show through.

I used modeling paste through my butterfly stencil, drying each butterfly as I went along as not to smear.
Going back in with more blue, white and turquoise paint.

As I was going along adding more paint it dawned on me the outline of the paper looked like mountains so I went with it and enhanced these areas.

 I also used Pitt Pens and Pan Pastels is areas to make it pop and that's it!

I did not want to add anymore and lose the effect I had.

Wow I stood back and thought job well done Linda, I could never recreate this as it just evolved as I went along.

Hope you like it.

All for now and I shall see you all later.
