So school gets out in a few weeks. So of course I have a million things going on around here!! Tennis playoffs, the Susan G Komen 5K, making S'mores bags for the school cakewalk, planning a tennis scavenger hunt, Julia's birthday, Mother's day, end of the year party planning and more tennis!! I just have put too much on my plate!! So what do I do when I have too much to do??? I sit and play!! In fact, I sat and played at Altered Angel with my Thursday's Angels and made this fun owl canvas!
I actually found the brown canvas at Goodwill. It had white decorations on it, but it had obviously been sitting in the sun and was absolutely faded!! So to start I mixed my acrylic paint, clear gesso and glazing medium. That way I figured I would have a ground and pretty transparent paint to show off the original shapes in the background!! Next I cut out and glued on my owl and grass. I also put some paint, rub-ons and tissue paper around the edges to liven up the background. I REALLY like how she turned out!! I am going to hang her on the wall near my desk I like her so much!!
