I tried something new

I didn't take a picture until I was finished. Briefly, I started with an 8x10 stretched canvas. I painted then added a photo that I printed. Added a little more paint here and there then some words that on one were printed from the computer, on the other it was hand written.

This is my daughter's cat Ace. I did this one using a saying she had posted on facebook. She said her favorite colors were pink, blue and green so I used a little bit of all three when I did the background. I also framed the picture of Ace by glueing on some green jute twine that I had.



This one of Gibbs I started by applying masking tape in a crumply fashion to the outer edges. The tape wasn't sticking down well enough so I added a layer of tissue paper to hold it all in better. Next I painted the whole thing black then added other colors to highlight the wrinkles I added the picture of Gibbs then fisnished it with his name. The capital G was cut from my cricut machine then I traced around the G on a piece of brown card, wrote out the rest of his name and then cut around it all. I added the glitter to all but the first letter then I glued on the die cut letter.

Both need a sealant sprayed on them but I don't have any until I get to the store. That won't change the look of them so for the picture  they were done.

I had fun doing these and may try with some other pictures.
