I've been a busy bee this weekend. Worked on 6 backgrounds, 5 x 7 in size, flat canvas board. Previously I was working on watercolor paper, but the warping bugs me, so I moved to canvas board to see how they'd turn out.
Same technique I've been learning on Tam's Collage, Paint, & Soul course over at her Willowing network. I've been modifying how I work for what works for me, but I still use her basic concept to achieve the results I like.
I really love how the backgrounds turned out, you can't see the details, but I used crackle paint on all 6 in various corners. Looks pretty cool in person.
The last image are the girls I'm working on....just wanted to share the in progress work I've been doing since I haven't posted in a little while. I was wanting to get all 6 done, completed, and in my shop this weekend, but alas, it's been a crazy weekend with trying to potty train the little one, fit in errands, and battling holiday traffic.
On the plus side, hubby, little man, and I got to see a drive-in movie. Never done that before, so that was a pretty cool experience - the only down side is the screen looked a tad blurry...that or my vision really sucks (which technically it does since I wear glasses to see distance, boo!). X being 2 1/2 didn't really grasp the concept of sitting still and watching a movie (he usually tears up the house while we watch a show, his toys and books will be all over the room, but it seems to be his happy chaos...that he has to clean before bed, lol), but that's ok since it didn't start until 9:30p so 30 min into it he was knocked out. He sure did love the popcorn tho! haha!!
Anywho....a warm welcome to all the new followers and a big HOWDY to those already following. I hope wherever you are you are managing to stay cool and enjoying the holiday!
