CREATE - ColourArte DT Call project 40

Mona Pendleton | Monday, February 2, 2015 @ 11:25 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Today I have a project to share as part of the application process to become a member of the fabulous ColourArte DT.
In case you are not familiar with ColourArte products, please be sure to visit their site ~ HEREColourArte makes and sells a variety of beautiful and unique Watercolor-Acrylic Hybrid paints, Watercolor Twinkling H20s, Silks Acrylic Glazes, Primary Elements Artist Pigments and Radiant Gel Paints. 
 I created a canvas featuring a variety of ColourArte products including Silks Acrylic Glazes and Primary Elements Artist Pigments along with lots of texture and a variety of embellishments:
To create this project, collage and adhered tissue wrap paper on the canvas: 
 Once dry, add lots of texture using a stencil and texture paste:
 Allow to dry, adhere the heart and embellishments then paint the entire canvas with white Gesso: 
Once dry, paint the entire canvas with Silks Acrylic Glaze African Jade. Highlight the perimeter of the heart with Silks Acrylic Glaze Bolivian Blue then mist with water to blend the colors. Highlight the center of the heart with Oytser Silks Acrylic Glaze:  
As a final touch, mix a small amount of African Jade and Bolivian Blue Primary Elements Artist Pigments with a couple spritzes of water then highlight the perimeter of the heart and flowers. Allow to dry then randomly splatter with White Acrylic paint: 
Many thanks for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)

Mona your heart canvas is so cute. I love the texture you achieved through the stencil. It looks great when you cover the canvas with tissue paper. And the shades you painted are fab as well. Are these flowers homemade ? They are so pretty. I adored the flowers you used on your happy home and you mentioned that they were homemade. They look super pretty !!!
