Primadonna Wooden Canvas

Well not quite a wooden canvas!!  In fact, two pieces of wood 3.5" x 2.5" glued together to make a piece 3.5" x 5" for PaperArtsy technique #4 by Linda.

I created the background as per the technique, but used slightly different colours.  I also used different images as I don't have those either!!  As you can see, because of the ridge where I glued the wood together it didn't quite stamp properly.  I painted the bright gold wings with baltic blue paint and then swiped it off with a baby wipe to make them look more grungy and fitting for the piece.

After I'd used the white Posca pen I took out my black one and filled in the gap where the ink had missed the wood on the main image.

Great work, very inventive using the things you have! The background looks fab, though, I love it.

Lovely blending of the background colours to leave that beautiful highlighted area in the centre - love your woodblock canvas!

This is what the challenges are all about Sam, being inspired by the GD and the PA products to make something your own! You have certainly done that with this GORGEOUS make, love how you have improvised with the wooden blocks, for me this adds extra interest to the piece. Love this lots. Thanks again for your enthusiasm in supporting us! x

Terrific idea Sam to use the real wood. I like the one with misses stamping it gives it character.

Have a good day

Love Chrissie xx

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 9 years and 0 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
