Here are some closeups of detail…..
One of the first steps for this canvas was gluing on some mesh onto the canvas. I then painted the canvas,using DA paints,denim,cashmere & hot chocolate. My next step was to do some stencil work, I used Shimmerz paints TexureZ Teal me no lies. Once that dried I applied a thick coat of clear crackle onto the canvas….
I painted the chipboard with DA paints, then clear crackle. I sprinkled on micro beads onto the heads of the grass while the crackle was still wet.
I also used some seed beads…
For the glimmer on the canvas I used LuminArts silks acrylic glaze,& H2O’s. I just kept playing with the silks to get the shades of colour that I wanted…
Thank you so much for taking the time to look,& I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with,with this months Mood Board!

STAY TUNED FOR AN AMAZING GIVE-A-WAY THIS MONTH AS WELL !

    Rachelle, your canvas is just AMAZING! So many chippies used – I love it! I wish I lived in Australia so I could attend your workshops…but alas, too far of a drive from Oregon, USA, LOL. Love the mood board for August:)
