I finished a canvas I started working on a few days ago, and I love how it turned out!! Saw this on pinterest and loved it! But I didn’t have any wood, or some place that I could really put something that big. What I did have was a selection of canvases and wall space! So, out came the stencils and paint, and here is the finished piece:
Originally the copper colored letters were turquoise, but I felt like that blended into the background too much. The pictures don’t do it justice, it’s very bright and colorful, and the copper and black letters really pop from the background!! The final layer of the background was molding paste colored with paint and used with a stencil. The texture just invites you to run your hands over it! Since I know I will never frame it, I painted a black border around the edges, and I think it makes it feel finished.
Materials used: 18″ x 24″ canvas, gesso, acrylic paints, molding paste, stencils, sharpie paint pen, and gel pen.
Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope you are having great spring weather where ever you are!
