Secret Garden Canvas

This is how the Secret Garden canvas started out, a few scraps of lace, die cuts and book paper adhered to the canvas with Matt Medium. The darker die cuts I painted gesso over to tone them down.

Then I put some texture paste through a couple of stencils for added texture.

Added lots of leaves, (fabric and clay) flowers (fabric, paper), moulds, berries, pine cones, acrylic pieces with a hot glue gun. Then sprayed brown ink in and around the flowers and leaves. I also randomly dabbed gesso over some of the leaves and berries for a more even colour tone.

I hope this close up shows how textured the canvas is!

Here is the finished canvas!
