Inka Gold. I have named it:
This sentiment is from Tim Holtz Life Remnant Rub Ons. It just sums up how I felt when the canvas was done!
To make the sun and the rays, I first applied Wendy Vecchi embossing paste through a Viva Decor stencil, turning it to look like the sun. The embossed image so much texture and interest to the canvas!
In this photo, I angled the frame and washed light over it so you could see the shine the Inka Gold added! That was my last step and I applied it with a tiny paintbrush to get in the fine lines. I think it adds the warmth of sunshine to the canvas! I also have a vivid imagination!
Here you can see the Wendy Vecchi embossing paste pattern left by the stencil. You can also see how I applied green and yellow and white TH Distress Paints along the bottom, turned the canvas upside down, and spritzed it with a Inkssentials Mister bottle until the paints marbled how I liked them. You can also see how I started adding paint splats with more TH Distress Paints to make flowers.
I used the same technique for the sky base.
The water sprayed on it did the trick, and I kept adding more colors and paint until the color looked right to me. Then I painted the sun bigger and splattered and splatted different colors of TH Distress paints until I was happy. And in case you forgot, here is the end result:
I hope you like it and are inspired to try something new to you like I did!
