The prepared canvas was sprayed starting at the top where the Glimmer mist was encouraged to drip down. Then the bottom sprayed and then the middle with red. A few more blasts of all colours left a nice puddle of green on the work surface the canvas was dipped into that leaving darker patches and splodges.
Next the roses and a single sunflower were stamped in black. Gold croco spread sparingly from the top. Interested to see how this would behave if an inked stamp was pressed into it, so the sunflower was cleaned of ink press into the moist paste stamp quickly cleaned. While the croco was drying the the roses and sunflower were painted. Two more sunflowers stamped onto the sides but not filled in to provide a little sense of depth. Green croco spread up from the bottom. Canvas set aside to dry.
Acetate cut using TH Butterfly die and coloured with gold leaf pen. Sheets of pva glue coloured with alcohol inks cut with same die to go under the acetate. Various parts glued together and left to dry. Found in the acetate packet a stamped dragonfly, this was cut out and attached to the canvas. When the croco was basically dry if not completely cracked the butterfly was stuck on. Florist wire curled and shaped tops this canvas off.
I wonder if this is acceptable as a second entry this month to Alter it Monthly where the theme is Canvas?
