This is a little 4' x 4' flat canvas for another recent swap. The swap theme was texture. I have used impasto and lace together underneath, then gessoed both. I then layered some ochre coloured paints to help give depth in colour. The main image is from a serviette with lots of doors glued on with modge podge and worked into the texture. I love the colours, the rustic Tuscany look of these. I then angel mist sprayed to re-wet and make sure the serviettes contoured to the texture. I then stamped the sentiment on a scrap part of the serviettes. This was then mounted on a bit of rectangle chipboard. Both the canvas and sentiment edges were then sanded and inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Frayed Burlap. A painted "Collections" bracket, a photo turn and high mounting the sentiment and it's done.
