FOUR MINI CANVASES
For this project, I taped four canvases together and worked on them at the same time. I couldn’t choose between a couple of stencils, so I used 8!
TCW9011 Clear Matte Medium
TCW759 Tangled Vine, TCW765 Flower Grid,
TCW768 Journal Musings, TCW769 Flower Scroll,
TCW770 Wildflower Duet, TCW772 Regal Butterfly,
TCW787 Architexture, TCW737 Love Sonnet
Paints – umber, cheddar, sedona, elephant
Dictionary pages, tissue wrap, 6” square canvases

To begin, I gessoed the canvases and then I taped the four of them together so I could work on all of them at the same time. I stuffed paper towels in them so they wouldn’t sink in when I was working on them.
Next, I painted them with an ivory paint and then used matte medium to glue strips of dictionary pages onto the canvases.
After that, I began to paint the canvases with the cheddar, sedona, and elephant colored paints.
Once they were dry, I used the umber paint and a large variety of TCW stencils to decorate the canvases.
In order to tone down some of the color, I applied tissue wrap using the matte medium; and then painted over that once it was dry.
To finish, I applied more stenciling and painted the sides using the umber paint.
