Anyway, here are a couple of new layouts, sans photos!
This second one is for my 7 year old ballerina! I love how it came out.
The next project I'm working on is a wall canvas for my 15 year old daughter. She has a favorite quote by Mary Oliver that she wants to hang up in her room. She printed the quote off the internet and then asked me to make a "poster" for her room. I was thrilled that she wanted me to make something for her as generally she does not have much appreciation for my art...
Here's the quote:
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
With your one wild and precious life?
I've decided to make a canvas wall hanging instead of a poster because I rethink it will look really cool as a wall hanging, and like the challenge of creating on fabric.
First I cut a large piece of canvas, 22x26", (poster size), and Gesso'd the whole thing. Instead of using a paint brush, I used a credit card to apply the gesso to the canvas fabric. This works quickly, cleanly and applies a smooth and level layer to the fabric as you can see below:
I'm going to let this dry overnight and then will start spraying, stenciling, stamping and painting tomorrow night. This will be the fun part!
