Well I take my dogs,out every morning for there walk,and I always walk up to our church,and there is one,beautiful tree and I have tried to do this in my canvas,so see what you think. Its all done with cardboard,and texture paste.
Step one applying the cardboard,I did,sketch it first then followed the lines i had drawn.
Then I used some modge podge, to begin to mould it to the canvas.
The next step I covered it with,gesso.
Then I added some,fibres,onto the,base of the tree.
Then again I put some more gesso onto the canvas. Then found some,bits from my stash,to add to the base.
The next step was to cover it completely with Gesso,and then added some texture paste,to add more dimension.
The next stage was to start adding color to it,
Here is close up of one side of,the canvas now all finished.
Another,view of the canvas
And finally,the full view of the canvas.
I have added,some elements from my stash,paints,Ferro metal effect steel gold,and some croco crackling color to the edge,turquoise.
This is a large canvas,15,by 8 inches.
croco turquoise croco colour.
ferro precious steel gold.
various sprays,glimmer mist,etc,
charms etc from my stash.
Finally,chipboard letters to spell,Nature.
Hope you like it,I tried to capture the tree,as its like a stub,they have cut of the top of the tree,and cut of most of the branches,
not to sure about this one but I know you will tell me what you think.
love Cheryl xxxx
