Three Little House Canvases Using Gelli Prints

These are three small canvases - about 5X5 in. that I did. I gelli printed directly onto the canvas for the background and cut pieces out of other gelli prints for the houses. Then I used more paint, doodles, stamping, rub-ons and more to finish them off.

Mixed Media Canvas - Peace

Wow - it's been a while since I've posted anything. It got really busy over the holidays. But I have been making lots of art. I'll be posting some pictures over the next little while of things I've been making.

I recently tried repurposing a canvas that my daughter had done a few years ago. It was one where she had melted crayons on it, so I knew the only hope was lots of gesso, texture and molding paste.

Unfortunately I didn't take a picture of the original canvas, but here is the finished product.

These two pictures sort of show the texture and also you can see some of the art peeking through below the gesso.

I am currently following along with Donna Downey's Inspiration Wednesday and that is where I got the idea for the raised letters for the word "PEACE".  So that is it for today. I'll be back soon with more art to share!
