Welcome to this months project for Altered Eclectics, a month long mixed media and altered art challenge blog with an anything goes theme.
The paint splatter is from the new collection of fabric spray paints by Colour Factory, here I've used blue, green and yellow. Spayed from around three feet above the canvas I got smaller droplets.
While the paint was drying I dabbed around the edges with transfer foils in gold and blue, the tacky paint picked up on the foil giving it a little sparkle.
The flower was stamped on to white tissue paper then added to an area on the canvas painted with PVA glue, it was then sealed with another layer of PVA over the top and left to dry.
The petals and leaves are coloured with Fabric inks taken from the ink pad with cotton buds and blended on the canvas.
The sentiment comes with the flower stamp, this is stamped in black on to white tissue and added to the canvas in the same way as the flower was. The tissue goes a little translucent when painted on so the speckles of colour still show through, this is the benefit of using tissue, it almost disappears ans saves you having to try and stamp direct on to the canvas which can be problematic.
Don't forget any mixed media or altered art project can be added to our challenge blog at Altered Eclectics, the only thing we don't accept is cards and ATC's.
