Bold colours on a mixed media canvas


Bold-colours-on-a-mixed-media-canvas

This year, I've been working on canvas panels so that I can frame them in shadow boxes. Even though I've been a little distracted of late by pastels and pretty flowers, I decided to go back to my roots and work with some bold colours. :)


I started with The Crafter's Workshop stencil and Liquitex ceramic stucco. I love experimenting with different textured gels/mediums to get different textural effect on my pieces. 


Then I painted the whole canvas red before adding other paint colours using my fingers. Can you see the cool ceramic stucco texture? Yeah, plain old modeling paste is so passé...try others! *winks*
