Hello! Hope you’ve had a great Thursday. Tonight I’d like to show you a canvas I made, using a tutorial by the FABULOUS Hels Sheridan – if you don’t know her work, you need to visit her blog immediately. Or at least after you’ve read this post.
When I saw the gorgeous canvas Hels posted on her blog last week, I knew I wanted my own & very handily, she posted an excellent tutorial on how she made it.
I loved making the background. I’ve tried colour blocking before & failed miserably, but this was easier. Even though I was slightly trepidatious in the beginning, to my relief, it all started to come together.
Wish these photos were better. The shimmer from the Perfect Pearls mist is lovely. The little bird on the branch is from PaperArtsy.
I didn’t have a heart stencil, so I made my own using a PaperArtsy die. It looks great with the Treasure Gold on to. The canvas is 21x15cm & I think it’s a little large for the heart, but it was the only one I had – shopping expedition required!
Here’s the finished piece. Weirdly, deciding where everything was going to go took me an age. I faffed around for hours before making a final decision. I wanted the canvas to stand, so I painted the wooden spools black, attached the adhesive pearls & glued the spools on with Comic Shimmer glue.
Thank you so much to Hels for posting such a great tutorial, making this was fun.
Until next time,
Love & light
