April challenge over at Altered Eclectics *
For this months challenge I put together this canvas for my daughter. She has twins and whilst trawling facebook I found these fabulous pictures of them on the swings. I knew I had to use them and enhance them on canvas.
I used modelling paste through a stencil and sprayed using a purple top til half way down and green from bottom up. The colour was far to strong so spent an absolute age dry brushing with white paint to make the background more subtle - took ages lol.
For the frames I cut some twigs from my garden and roughly lay modelling paste over the top to give the impression of bark. The flowers. leaves and metal pieces were colured using the same purple spray. Voila and all done and dusted. this is now hanging on her living room wall.
Now for the pics - enjoy!!!
Thanks for dropping by and why not head on over to Altered Eclectics and join in with this months challenge.
