This is the project I have for you!! First, I want to say I am super excited to be part of the eclectic Paperie DT!! Yay!

Ok, for this project I used a Natural canvas, added gesso and covered most of the top. I set aside to let it dry. Next, I worked on my leaves. I took some real big leaves and traced them on Watercolor paper, then cut them out, after that I dry embossed them. Covered them with Banana Gelato and water sprayed. I used my heat gun to dry the leaves, after that I painted them with Gold Viva Decor Paint (it dries super fast), then I inked all edges with Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain Distress inks, bended he leaves to give them a more natural real look.
After my canvas dried, I added modeling paste, dry it with heat gun, added Pool Acrylic Paint using a paint brush, then splattered Red pepper Acrylic paint. After the canvas got dried, I sponged all the edges of it with Metallic Copper Acrylic paint and Gold Paint. I painted a Vintage wood bird and letters with same metallic paint color.
Then added a piece of burlap, and added all the piece to canvas.

Hope you like my project!!

I invite to stop by the eclectic Paperie Blog and enjoy all the other projects made by the DT! They are fantastic!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  9. We are all super excited to have you join the team, Giovanna. This canvas is wonderful. The texture of the leaves and the burlap is awesome. I love the colour palette you chose, especially the bright blue of a clear fall sky. The leaves looks fabulous...love that they are scultural. The bird makes me smile and those letters are so vibrant. Great creation.
