Textural Canvases

Here are a few more sneak peeks of my samples for Sheena Douglass' shows on Saturday on Create and Craft, 11am, 3pm and 7pm.
I painted three canvases adding old book pages in the background and adding the lily from Sheena's A Little Bit Floral range. I then added the three canvases to three small frames approximately 6" x 6" and painted the frames to coordinate.
This is a larger canvas I decorated, mixing the paints cerulean blue and primary magenta to get the colour I wanted. The Iris has been stamped onto acetate and painted on the reverse. I also added masking tape in the background on my canvas to add more texture and interest when painted.
I also added some brass letters for further interest.
My last canvas I added to a black frame again stamping the magnolia's onto acetate and adding masking tape in the background and adding more of the brass letters.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
