The current challenge is Shiny Stuff and as treasure gold is my most go to medium this was right up my street.
A couple of weeks ago my husband's cousin sent a photo she had found of him and his two sisters when they were little. The younger sister died when she was 3 or 4 and the older sister in her mid 50's so the photo was quite nostalgic for him especially as he hadn't any photos of his younger sister.
As a surprise I decided to use the photo (copy of it) in a project and this is the finished canvas.
The 7 x 5 canvas was covered in white gesso, some grunge paste stencilling and then painted with Fresco Chocolate Pud. More stencilling, this time using Fresco vintage lace. the photo was mounted onto burlap which was frayed and the pulled stands were glued onto the canvas for texture. I used lace and assorted embellishments some of which were painted with Chocolate pud or Vintage lace and a few left bare. Lots of treasure gold was used to highlight some of the elements and raised areas.
I hope you like it - more importantly my husband certainly did!
