I used a small square canvas and applied Ranger Crackle Paste focusing more around the edges. I used my heat tool to dry and then applied some powders and sprays in different green tones, then set a side to dry. I painted all my chipboard Marrakesh Trallis and Lacy Ornament in brown acrylic paint.

For the Heart I used Prima Patina Effect Paste. The wings I created using a mold and resin and applied the Patina paste to them as well. I used the bronze paste in the Patina effect paste set to highlight the chipboard and the wings.

The small butterfly I used a the same powders as the background and then used the bronze paste to help in blend more in with the theme of the canvas.

Dream Catcher Canvas – August Mood Board for Dusty Attic

Hello Again!! Today I am sharing with you a canvas board I created using the Dusty Attic August Mood Board which is on their blog as inspiration.

Mood Board

It’s always a challenge for me to create something that isn’t boy related due to having 3 boys so I found this a challenge but loved every moment of it. I wanted to create a canvas focusing on the dream catcher image and the colour tones….and this is what I came up with.

There are so many layers to this canvas..I just love it!! And I got to use some molds a very dear friend of mine made for me. I loved how the crackle varnish created more texture to the dream catcher.

Here are some close ups.
