Long over due

It has been awhile since Ive posted anything. My work schedule changed right after spring break, so I have been trying to adjust, which has been very difficult rearranging schedules with the rest of the family too. I have played a bit here and there with color and blending, and just having fun! I was able to be outside on my porch with some great weather and made a pic for my living room by mixing and getting some texture in there too! So I will posty some stuff I've been doing.

Feather Your Nest

So After hanging all day at studio play on Saturday and playing around with some different techniques, I had pre- planned a little project to get done for Spring. This is what I came up with and I really like how it turned out. I have to add my paper nest and maybe a little chicken wire, haven't decided. I painted base a pale blue then wrapped a few rubber bands on a brayer and lightly rolled over the canvas i cheap acrylic brown to give it a aged look, then printed letters in different fonts glued them on cardboard (cereal boxes). Added Gel Medium to each letter covered and dried. Then used a fabercastle marker to shade around each letter. Then added texture from stamps. Cost only for canvas was 20.
