Arty Girlz weekly challenge #54 RED

This weeks challenge over on Arty Girlz is the colour RED as always you can create what ever you like and interpret the theme how ever you choose.

I have made a small canvas board modern Art painting for my sons bed room actually this is going to be a set of 3 the red one is #2 of the set and the blue green one is the 1st one that i did and number 3 is a work in progress.


The boards come ready prepared i used Hard molding paste to create the textured sections, when that was dry i painted the canvases with Acrylic paint when that was dry i used silver gilding cream over the textured surfaces then glued silver washers to the textures sections.


I used flouriest wire to create hanging loops for the back by twisting and making a figure 8 so my son can hang the canvases what ever way he wants and the other end of the figure 8 acts like a spring and lets the canvas stand proud from the wall rather than tilting inwards.


They do look better in real life i just couldn't get a good pic :-(

I really like these Crissi - simple but very effective! May I ask where you bought your texture paste and if it's easy to work with? I know Louise uses it too, but you know that I buy most of my materials online because of where we live!
I loved your art journal page. I am having so much fun with mine and am so glad I started one!!

Fabulous work, Crissi.
Im so out of touch with things, I don't get to craft much at the minute as I finally got the chance of a new job but I aren't qualified to do it, so they took me on anyway & I am in constant training. I study at night & when I do get chance to craft it is hard to create something in one day.
But it will all be worth it in the end. I am happier than I have been in ages :0)
