Art Brushes – Patricia Basson

Hello Dear Blogger friends…

I know…have not blogged and shared for ages!!! But today I am back with a very special project, a canvas created as my Dusty Attic monthly project. I used some of the new designs added to the Dusty Shop…I used the Doily # 9 and the Paint Brushes # 2

To get some awesome textures on the Burlap canvas, I used Pumice Stone Effect Pastes and Art stones from Prima.  Also used Rust and Patina Pastes… 

I wanted lots of dimension of my Chipboard, therefor my old and trusted technique of wetting and separating the layers was used again. After drying and Gesso’ing the wings, I used Metallique Waxes , Rose Gold and White Gold on them. I used several colours of Distress Oxide’s to paint my Paint Brushes and the Doily. I used Broken China, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo.

Using the pastes to get a weathered and used effect on the brushes…

The canvas and chipboard in the planning stages.  

Colouring and embossing on the Doily, also used the inside circle. The embossing is done with Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel from Stampendous.

Thank you for taking the time to visit….
