This month at Altered Pages the theme is flowers. I created this home décor 8 x 8 floral canvas. What a cherished gift for a friend, sister, mother, aunt or it may look perfect on the wall in your own home!
Using the gorgeous printable florals and teacups images from Altered pages, so beautifully vintage. I chose pink and gold as my colour base. I began by using White Gesso to prime, let dry. With gel medium I added vintage text papers, also scraps of papers from my stash (waste not want not!) Let the canvas dry.
I painted the canvas with pale pinks and white acrylic paints. Then collage the fussy cut images with a gel medium, set aside to dry. With various pens I enhanced colours, details and shadows. Finally, I painted the border in a metallic gold (you can not tell its metallic in the image). As an option you could use Gold Gilded Leafing for the border.
