Finnabair inspired canvas reworked

 Hi everyone hope you are all okay and having a crafty time
preparing for Christmas.
This was the original which had a lot of layers and the 
base had a translucent.
So i gessoed it all with white gesso and allowed to dry.
 Next came spraying with Lyndy's stamp gang moonshine sprays.
 Followed by a bit of dry brushing with a mix of Deco arts Prussian
 blue hue mixed with media tinting base.
 Layers of white gesso were dry brushed to highlight the swirls on the
canvas base. 
 The photo below shows how it lifts the swirls off the canvas.
 The following photo's show the dry brushing, over the main focal point
of the canvas.
Another photo. 
 I really enjoyed altering this. Work had asked me to do a piece for
our office wall so it will now be hanging up on our art wall. 
I hope you have all enjoyed my piece today please feel free
to let me know what you think.
Cheers Dee. x

Mechanical World Custer over at SASPC

Hi everyone and its time for our next round of inspiration for 
the month over at SASPC blog.

I used the 'Mechanical World Custer" From Boozy bear for 
my plaque.

To begin with I used a circular chip board base which I painted
 with deco art media fluid acrylic cobalt turquoise hue.

Next I used deco art crackle glaze which i applied over the blue 
painted chipboard circle & put aside to do its magic.
Once dry black antiquing cream was used to
highlight the cracks.

The middle harlequin and globe were covered in a layer 
of texture sand paste and painted with panes grey when dry.
Quinacridone gold was then applied over the top.

The top cogs wereI usedraw umber followed by crackle paste 
gold embossing and dirty washes followed by dry brushing
with gesso completed the top part.

I sprayed heavy water coloured card with Lindy's stamp gang moon shadow 

Andy skinners industrial stamp was stamped onto the card along with 

A bit more embossing stamping the vintage journey stamp onto a wooden stirrer.
I hope you have all enjoyed this post please feel free to let me know 
what you think.
