I created this this 18″ X 24″ canvas using “Golden Coast” from Prima Marketing Inc.
I applied Finnabair’s ArtBasics Heavy Gesso, then a few layers of Finnabair’s Opal Magic “Unicorn” colors. The edges of the canvas was distressed with “Frayed Burlap” Distress Oxide from Tim Holtz.
I used a selection of the florals from the “Golden Coast” collection and a bit of the greenery from the “Moon Child” collection.
I took a bit of artistic license and used the “dream” cut-a-part and added my own phase at the bottom of the canvas. I thought this best describes my talented sister-in-law Kathy and her photography business.
I fussy cut the hot air balloon from the paper collection, then cut a duplicate piece of the basket and flowers, then popped that piece up with foam squares for a three-dimensional look. I repeat this for the “dream” cut-a-part.
The last elements are the doilies, also distressed with Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide, and jute twine made into circles of various sizes.
The entire layout is attached to the canvas with foam tape.
