My very first Canvas – can finally reveal!

Posted by on February 15, 2014

Yay, I can finally reveal my very first canvas that I made about a month or so ago…

This was made especially for a one-on-one VALENTINE’s swap with a lovely lady here in Australia..

I’ve been very careful not to reveal this canvas anywhere until the package was opened…

Of course, since Valentine’s Day was yesterday, I’m safe to now share it with you all.. :)

I didn’t really know what I was doing.. lol.. I had looked at some pics on Pinterest of finished projects but I have never watched any tutorials or anything like that on YouTube… I like to figure things out on my own, gives me such  much greater sense of accomplishment.. lol

Anyway, after lots of Gesso, misting, some stencils and more gesso, followed by more misting.. This is the base..



I only took a few photos… Wish I had taken more now.. But argh well…

Here is the next progress shoot.. I’ve added the doiley in the middle, some torn valentines pattern paper strips.. chicken wire stamps to the corners.. The Kaiser Heart and some modelling dress maker things..

Here is the finished canvas… It is only  8×8″…

I added some ribbon to the bottom of the center cluster, the many flowers and a pretty Butterfly..
