Hello friends, welcome!
Today I’d like to share a little mixed media piece with you.
This could be a wall hanging, or simple sit on the shelf/table.
First I found this little wooden wall hanging tray thing at Michaels. I bought a few and stashed them for later.
It had a saw tooth hanger and some twine stapled to the back for hanging but the orientation was wrong for this project, so I took them off, filled the hole, and sanded. Then I painted the outside white.
First thing to do- prep the canvas. I used clear gesso.
(I cut the canvas down to fit inside the tray.)
Once it’s dry, paint away! I used watered down acrylics for the background, and full strength acrylic paint for the sunshine.
Once it was painted to my liking and dry, I went over the lines with a paint pen.
Now for the Dew Drops! Woot! I used orange in the center of the sun.
For the word shine, I used dies from Bruut Monroe. I cut multiples and stacked them up o make the die cut thick and sturdy.
