Possibilities Circular Canvas


Today I am sharing a mixed media canvas I made during an online workshop with Tracy Evans.

The piece is 30cm in diameter and so makes a lovely wall piece. The centre silhouette is from the Eclectic Silhouette stamp from AALL & Create.

Distress Oxides in Fossilised Amber and Hickory Smoke make the base colour, along with background stamping and stencilling with texture paste. Paint splatters also give more texture. The chipboard words remind us to try things out of our comfort zone.

Paint dripage and shadows drawn with watercolour pencils accentuate the textured circles. Tim Holtz alpha tape and index clips were used as decoration.

Inside the painted embroidery hoop sits our stamped human silhouette wearing wings, but wrapped in wire. She needs to break free and be inspired to create. Behind her is some book page stamping and black threads. She is holding an 'Inspire' charm and has a paint brush base.

That's all for now!
Be sure to check out Tracy's Facebook Group for inspiration and information about great value online workshops.

That's all for today.
Thanks for stopping by!
