Home is the place to be right now with this rainy weather. I'm not complaining though, I have to occupy myself somehow, and I don't need any encouragement to get my inks and paints out. I thought I would make a happy little scene of "Home is where the ink & paint is", and the heart of course!
I first primed a 30 x 25cm canvas with gesso, and left it to dry. Brushed some blue and green acrylic paint across the canvas until I was happy with the result.
I sprayed a page in a book with Dylusions Inks, Cosmic Shimmers and Radiant Rain, drew the letters for the caption and cut them out.
I used Balzer Design's Crafter's Workshop stencil on the bottom with some Forest Moss green TH Distress ink. I used a flourish mask to give the illusion of clouds and I really like how it looks. I also used a Dylusion's number jumble stencil here and there. The frayed material stamp around the edge is from The Stamp Man. I flicked some yellow, black and white paint at the canvas and used a lid for the circles.
I drew the heart flowers and painted them direct on the canvas then I tore two thin pieces of green card stock for the flower bed. I painted a page in my book with gesso and cut out some fence posts and cross bars from the page and stuck them on the canvas to make the fence. I really like the way the fence had turned out. I did some shading with some Caran D'Ache pencils at the base of the fence posts and the house.
A happy little painting for my craft room wall.
