For October Unruly Arts has put us to the test for RAQ1 and for RAQ 2( that's Reader Art Quest). RAQ1 is to use paint, or a painted project. RAQ2 is to add dimension to a canvas. So I rolled them into one project, simply because I couldn't find my note book and remember which was which. ( My work desk, "Betsy" had had a jolly time hiding my note book.) The background of this canvas is layers of paint and gesso buildup, including some stenciling and some stamping. Like I said LAYERS. Once I had gotten that far I wasn't really sure which direction I want to go from there.
I loved the blue and avocado green peeking through the white. In a closeup you can see where I stamped swirls with a soft leaf color and an soft ocean colored ink. I chose the two tones of blue print paper for the flowers and use Tim Holtz's Tattered flower die. I kinda grundged them up and added a Rhine stone to the middle. I found some avocado green print and cut a swirly and some leave with the Cricut machine. After fiddling with the layout I decided to add the avocado grosgrain ribbon. The sentiment was cut with the Cricut, and three little flower rhinestones finished the project.
