Hooked on paint....:)



Canvas-for-Julie

There's something magical about putting paint on canvas. I can't believe it took me so long to get hooked on paint. The misconception is that it is messy and you will get paint everywhere. At least, that's what I thought since many artists tend to show us their painted hands. *LOL* Which was why I started with mists. You get the randomness of paint with the easy clean-up.


But it's surprisingly not as messy as what I initially thought ....[trust me, I can do this without messing up my manicure *LOL*] and you have more control over where the paint goes and drips. And all I need to clean up is my craft mat and my palette knife [Yep....too lazy to wash paint brushes..hehe]. 


A canvas for my bloggy pal Julie. :)

Supplies: 4 x 4 canvas, Daler-Rowney acrylic paints and gesso, Claudine Hellmuth gel medium, Tim Holtz game piece, 7 Gypsies sticker, Golden glass bead gel, bling, pearls, button, wrapping tissue, paper blooms, netting from vegetable packaging
