Fall Brilliance

I can't believe the weekend is over. I had a great weekend. I went to an image transfer class yesterday and below is my finish product.

We used a birch panel covered with printed paper (music sheets/text from a book). It was attached to the canvas with matte medium. Next step was we painted our panel with a light coat of Gesso. Then apply matte medium to the panel and apply the image transfer. Let the panel with image dry completely. Next, spray with water and remove the paper. Wha la the image is transferred to your canvas. I then painted my canvas with acrylic paints and water color crayon. I used a few stencils - butterfly, oak leaves with acorn (bottom right), Tim Holtz spider web and small dots for the centers of the flowers.

It was so fun and relaxing I can't wait to do the next one. We did some remodeling in our kitchen, once it's painted I will hang in the kitchen.

I hope you are inspired to create a project!
