Thank goodness it's Friday! I think most people will be finishing work today and having a well deserved rest for Christmas. It feels great doesn't it?
I've made this canvas for a friend who moved away a couple of weeks ago. Her career is in numbers and her other half is just as nerdy too. The pair of them wouldn't look out of place in an episode of The Big Bang Theory. They won't mind me saying that because its a bit cool and trendy to be nerdy these days. Her other half specialises in probability mathematics hence the "probably" at the end of the quote. I just know the pair of them are going to love it.
I tore up some pages from a maths book, I found the ones with lots of equations on and covered the background of the canvas. I then painted over the scraps of paper with gesso, blue, yellow and green acrylic paint. I started adding layers of colour using number and pattern stencils with distress inks.
You can see the equations on the scrap paper under the letters. I like this. I've stamped numbers and texture stamps for even more layers too. The letters are inked up Tim Holtz Grungeboard, I've used London Blue Dylusions inks and cosmic shimmers to give them a lovely deep blue colour. I've edged a few of them with some white paint, and stamped a honeycomb pattern with metallic copper acrylic paint on the letters and on the canvas.
I used Tim Holtz flower stamp along the bottom of the canvas with yellow and orange archival ink, but I've also stamped paint too for some strong vivid colour.
It's in the post winging it's way to my friend right now.
I hope she likes it?
I'd like to wish everyone who comes passing by or leaves me a comment a very Happy Christmas.
I really appreciate you taking time out of your day to say something nice or just coming for a visit.
Have a great Christmas
