On yesterday's WOYWW post, I showed a canvas I was working on
- well here it is in it's finished state.
During the 'One World One Heart' event I visited over 800 blogs and sometimes blogs were very slow to open - I therefore tended to scribble and doodle on a large piece of scrap paper I had on my desk whilst waiting for the sites to load. I also used to scribble down the number on the list I was up to and various other bits of nonsense. It occured to me that this sheet of scribble would make a great background for something or other. (I don't know about 'great', but you know what I mean!!)
Here's the scribbled sheet of paper glued onto the canvas with
Liquitex matte medium!
I used water soluble crayons to add the first layer of colour.
Once dry, I added some more
I slapped on some white acrylic paint and brayered it into the background
Once I decided to add a fabric heart, I introduced some of the same colours around the edge of the canvas
Once it was all dry I stitched the heart onto the centre of the canvas with three strands of embroidery thread (it was quite tough to do)
I stamped a few random images onto tissue paper and stuck them onto the canvas with more of the Liquitex medium.
There are two buttons on there somewhere!
The blue flower and green stems in the right bottom hand corner is some tissue paper that one of my OWOH gifts came wrapped in - so how appropriate it should go on too!
Unintentionally then, this canvas has become my
homage to the One World One Heart event!
