Ihr seht, ich war völlig durcheinander!
Nach der daraufhin einsetzenden Beruhigung, fand ich mich am Basteltisch und zeige Euch, was dabei heraus kam:
Our Creative Corner whom I joined for their "Anything Goes" September Challenge, were so friendly to invite me to create something as a guest.
This made me so happy that I ran to the next shop only to buy three pairs of new shoes (something I normally undertake when I am very annoyed and/or have eaten too much. You see, I was completely out of this world!)
Having done that necessary step for my tranquility, I sat down at the craft table and this is the result:
An autumn canvas without "ifs and buts", without too whimsical embellishments or symbolism, with which I merely invite you to join me in trying the technique of image transfer and background creation.
So please continue if you like to read the tutorial.
Einen weißen Canvas (auch die Ränder) nach Belieben mit Papier, Stoff, Malerkrepp usw. bekleben.
Cover a white canvas (don't forget the edges) with paper, fabric, masking tape...
Cover everything with gesso when dry. Press a baby wipe or tissue on the wet canvas to create structure.
Use stencils to create layers.
Use structure paste through stencil to create dimension. When dry use paint to integrate into image. Use a pencil or charcoal to create shadows.
Another leaf was stamped on the canvas.
After drying completely (some hours, better over night), soak the paper with a wet sponge and use your fingers to gently rub the surface until the top layer of the copy comes off in little worms. Repeat until you can see the printed image embedded in the varnish/gel medium. Take care! Too much water and rubbing may destroy the complete image. Let dry. The image can be seen clearly now, however veiled through a thin leftover layer. This will become transparent as soon as it is varnished or coated by a cover of wax.
Cut a piece of corrugated cardboard, cover with some gesso or paint. Use a snippet of paper or fabric, sew along the edge. Cut letters (here I used Tim Holtz's, or use die-cuts). Colour them with paint, wax, pastells, inkpads, embossing-powder. Mount on cardboard and then on canvas.
