NOT MUCH HAPPENING AT THE MOMENT....SO!



Hello Everyone..

No DT projects to share at the moment...so!!..

I'm going to share a project I have been working on for awhile..and I'm quite happy with the finished result.
I had an order for a canvas or two, and the client gave me a canvas that  she had purchased from a store, and liked at the time, but after the " Bark" canvases I did for her she didn't want this one anymore and gave it to me..well, to be honest I didn't like it much either....so I changed it..

This is what I was given....






Well. it's not that bad.. but to me, Poppies should be red....so!!




I used modelling paste over the poppies and let dry naturally..



Then painted them red with Acrylic paint...shaded the edges with water pastels and smudged away until I couldn't think anymore of what to do...



Then I tinted up some more modelling paste with red paint and plopped it on  here and there...when it dried, I realised I used the wrong red and it dried sort of brown in colour...and I didn't like that much.




So I  painted it again but this time using my fingers as it was so much quicker and I really enjoyed myself...
In this photo I just couldn't get the real colour to show, but it looks,IRL like the first red coat but with more texture...

Anyway, I was happy with it and here it is now on my craftroom wall....not too shabby eh!




Thanks so much for stopping by, see you soon...

luv CHRISSYxx

Good grief a mighty...NOT bad at all....it's GORGEOUS! How much fun was that to read! I love the poppy transformation. Sounds like you had a royal blast finger painting too. So much fun to get sneak peeks into your wonderful life. I can imagine it's so much fun to see that when you're crafting.

It's a fantastic transformation and the poppies do look so much better in gorgeous vibrant red and with such lovely texture now as well. It sounds like you had fun getting messy making it too!
