Hi Lindy’s lovers!
I absolutely love the colors in the Color Challenge this month, so I had to work with them again!! This time, I chose three of the colors. I omitted the Poinciana Red Flame and the Ramblin’ Rose. Love that the Lindy’s Color Challenge inspiration board gets it’s own set of colors that are coordinated for you, and you can use in whichever way you want!
I created this canvas dreaming of the colors of the sea, but with a touch of violet. I adhered lace and strips of canvas to my canvas board. Once dried, I painted on gesso to coat well. Then, I did some random texturing using crackle paste and a stencil. I also painted my embellishments with gesso to coat. The Dusty Attic chipboard frame, peacock feather, and flowers.
Once the flowers and chipboard were adhered to the canvas, I sprayed the canvas with water, and began to spray on my colors letting them drip and run until I was satisfied with the blending.
I did not adhere the frame totally until my canvas was completely colored. Then I slipped the photo under it when the canvas was done, and then adhered it permanently.
I didnt have to do anything to the Dusty Attic peacock feather other than giving it a good coat of white gesso before adhering it to the canvas, The sprays colored it beautifully.
