Pear Canvas, Made in Idaho
I use this canvas to Brave girl Camp, and I wanted to share it with you – share my bulb, if you will allow me. I can and will try to describe Brave Girls Camp at some point, but it will take time to absorb for a while, the experience and talk about it. I'm going to soon.
I can tell you that one of the big things I've focused on me, while I was at BGC, the completion of the projects, I WANTED to make. I mean don’t to sound selfish at all . . . I know that women (the few men that read this blog too!), you can, in any case, all of the other’ relate to the pressure of meeting;s expectations.
And whether you believe it or not, I'm in time with this blog, feeling like I was drowning, not posting projects of my own, because I thought you would hate what I've done.
I didn’t put the time and effort into these projects, I should have, for a million reasons. I accepted guest posts, that I have shouldn’t, not because I want to didn’t, but since I was committed to me, and that’t responsible.
Brave Girls Camp is about the discovery of the truth. The beautiful (and scary part) about the truth to do that, it’s out there, no matter what you do. I came with a lot of things, good and bad, about my work.
. So to the people I let down, I’m sorry.
On the positive side, I was more grateful for you, the readers of this blog. I have a great blog community in the world (in my humble opinion), and you are the most beautiful, most amazing people I’ve ever met. Thank you.
So, how did I bulb this collage? Gather these supplies:
16″ x 20″ screen
fabric bits – all of this you can find in coordinating colors
Mod hodgepodge gloss
FolkArt acrylic colors – bright Blue, cobalt, Wicker White, Citrus Green, Lime Green
Flat brush – two
Start layering your pieces of fabric on your canvas with the Mod-hodgepodge. This is so funny and so messy – I love it! Layer, layer, layer, until all of the exposed portion of the canvas is covered. Coat the entire canvas with Mod smorgasbord and drylet.br>Paint your pear-shape (or the shape of your choice) with bright Blue. This is so loosey-goosey. Only I eyeballed it, because it didn’t matter that it was the exact. Fill in the pear shape (it takes a couple of coats) and allow to dry.
you Paint the Form of a trunk with lime Green. Fill and allow to dry.
Go back to your cobalt and wicker White and add some accents in the bulb. I actually used the cobalt and only then, used, cobalt, mixed with some Wicker White to create the main highlight. In order to play. You can always go back over them until you are satisfied – trust me, I did! Let dry.
accent the stem cells with Citrus Green. Let dry.
the canvas to dry for 24 hours before hanging.
Let me tell you, after that first I was ready for a series! I love mixing fabric, Mod patchwork and paint. It’s life’s small pleasures. Are you looking for more posts about Brave Girls Campcoming soon.br>
