Winter Flower Canvas

Good Morning!

Georgie here today and I'm sharing with you a mini canvas I have made made using loads of Prima goodies!

I had one last Prima Resin Flower (Patty) left, I love these by the way, and can't wait to get more! I sprayed her with Prima Color Blooms in Summer Sky, Iris and Pearl White. The petals absorb the paints perfectly. The base was super easy to do, I ripped some papers from 7 Dots Studio Messy Head 6x6 Paper Collection, using Art Basics Soft Matte Gel to lay it down with and then cover a layer of it over the top.

Then I did a very light coat of Art Basics White Gesso, and stencilled over with Art Basics Modelling Paste using the a Finnabar's Stencil.

I included two pictures here of this little lovely flower, to try and show you the gorgeous shimmer and sparkle. Of course, the opportunity to use some Finnabair Glitter Glass always makes me happy and as I was going with wintery theme colours I chose 'Midnight', and topped it off with Finnabair's Sugar Glitter in White

I love the Micro Beads by Finnabar, for this canvas I used 'Splash'. Once dried, I went back over with the bloom sprays. The leaves are from Prima's Wood Icons in a Box and painted with Art Basics Gesso.

I added some torn strips to the sides with some modelling paste and paint drips to continue the theme.

Finished up with ink distressing the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

So that's me for today, I will be back soon with another project. Hope you all have a fan-tab-u-lous weekend!
