Canvas ala Fiona!

Good Saturday Morning To You All!

Well, it's a slowwwwww start this morning!  I love the weekends so I can stay up late and craft longer!  Well, I did!  I worked on a canvas that Fiona (Jennings644 on Youtube) did on her Ustream class yesterday! Of course hers is better and frankly easier to look at!  I grabbed my Dylusions sprays and inked mine up pretty good! Bahahahaha!  I also got around to work on the Steampunk woman statue thing that I've mentioned before...which I'm still working on and will have done today!  One of those projects that I can't seem to stop playing with! She's going to be cool!

But for this morning....I wanted to share my first dimensional canvas.....It's pretty much a hot mess but at least I learned a few things for next time....







I might have to re-gesso it and start again on this canvas....but it was fun to do!

Y'all have a great Saturday!

  5. A Hot Mess? Its awesome.. stop being so hard on yourself.. art is art.. and you did a great job on this. I want to make one myself. if you aren't already familiar with Leanne on youtube here is the video on her canvas. If I am not mistaken she had originally started the idea. She is awesome.. I know you will love her work. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=NHtHVrYEkP4#!

  8. Jim; love the dimension and the intensity but rather than re-gessoing the whole thing how about hitting it with some black? I bet it makes your dimension POP even more!.

  10. Your first turned out much better than my first! I didn't know Fiona had a u-stream channel. It must not be the same as her u-tube channel? I'd love to watch the class if you could let me know how to find it. Thanks Jim. Happy Easter!

  14. OM Gosh.... I love it! You did a fabulous job! I have looked at it for almost an hour now to see all of the pieces and I don't think I can pick them all out yet! That is a major accomplishment, as I normally can't sit still that long!!! LOL!!!

  16. I've been trying to find time to watch Fiona's videos for creating these kinds of canvases but just haven't gotten there yet. I want to see your canvas in person...so many layers and interesting bits on it. I'll bet I could use up a lot of my hoarded stash making one of these...thanks for the inspiration!!
