For all lost mums on Mother's Day


Space bubbles canvas

Hi everyone, haven't blogged for a while so though I would show you what I have been up to this evening.

Space bubbles canvas

I started out with an 8" x 8" blank canvas.
I didn't prime this one with gesso but you can if you wish.

I then got out a selection of Tim Holtz Distress ink pads and just created random area's of colour all over the canvas.
I gave a light spritz with water and pulled it away with paper towel.

I then chose 3 colours of  Paperartsy Fresco chalk paint and added a tiny drop of each colour into a mixing tray and added an equal amount of water to each colour.

I used a nail art fan brush to flick the paint onto the canvas and repeated this for all 3 colours.
 I finished with a spray of shimmer gold.

I dried the canvas with a heat gun to make sure it was 100% dry before continuing with the next stage.

I knew I would find a use for these circle masks as some point - and today was the day. Lay them out in whatever pattern you choose over the canvas - adhere them as best you can.

Then paint over the entire canvas with black gesso.  I painted the sides as well, but again, that is up to you.

Once dry carefully peel off the masks to reveal your "bubbles" underneath. 

To finish, I used a black micron pen and drew sketchy circles inside each bubble to add a bit of interest...

and there you go - a piece of art. 

Hang it any which way you choose.

Thank you for reading my blog
