Hi guys! After playing with the canvas I did Friday I knew I had to create another one, except this time I wanted to make it a little more my style.
For me that means a painted face, butterflies and flowers. This has that in spades, lol!
I started again with a recycled box:
Since I was low on matte medium I opted for good ol' Mod Podge. The papers I used for this part are DCWV Latte stack. They are very thick and canvas textured. After that dried it got a coat of gesso, some lace, gauze and antique music papers.
The metal down the right hand side is one of those old stretchy metal watch bands.
My very first step before any of this was to sketch and paint her face. I painted her on 140 lb. cold pressed watercolor paper:
She was painted with acrylics, watercolors and prismacolor pencils.
The banners were a lot of fun to make and I decorated some mini clothes pins to "hang" them from the line:
And here's just a few more close ups of other various places:
