As you may have seen I started to experiment with a photo collage style canvas...I am just having a play around with some techniques and, although I am so far from mastering this style, I am enjoying playing around with it...
I began with a 1920's style photo that I printed up and after deciding where it would be placed (and drawing a guideline around it, I began to ink and spray, use stencils and paints etc to decorate it..
I did some Distress Stain splats with Peeled Paint and Evergreen Bough...I blotted the ink with tissue afterwards as I wanted the colours for this to be quite muted.
Then I decided to add some spritzing of Dylusion colours using Dirty Martini and Calypso Teal.
Dot fade stencil was used with Picket Fence DP and Black Soot DI
I then began to use some stamping to add some detail and texture...I used a two different stamps - a script and text and using Jet black Archival ink I dabbed the stamps across the canvas.
I then stamped with Picket Fence DP onto the photograph
I added strips of printed tissue and tissue tape alongside where the photo was placed
A chit chat sticker was used edged with Black Soot DI
I added the photo and then decided to add a large metal flower...I brushed the flower with Gesso and when dry I spritzed it with Dylusion inks before gluing an Art Deco style button into the center.
I added two pearl pins to the flower decoration
Hope you like it!
