Over the weekend, I took a class on hand painting dimensional type. I decided to test run my knew found knowledge on our heart canvas.
These little canvases are gessoed and all ready to go. Just grab your paints and get started!
After about an hour or so, here's what I had done. Apparently it's a little too abstract because nobody in my family could read it. Oh, well, I like it and I think I'll get better at this with practice. Besides, Eric was totally impressed with my typography and his compliments in this area mean a lot to me.
I gathered some twigs from my backyard and glued them to the backside of the canvas to make a frame. (I love this idea and plan on using it often!) By propping the piece up on a bowl, I was able to place the twigs so that the curved edges came forward toward the front of the piece.
And that's all folks! Now, I'm off to get a hood for the front door.
