Hello dear friends!
Today I'm sharing a small canvas I created for Mixed Media Place. I wanted to make something colorful and happy, so I decided to create a hand-drawn sketch of a typewriter full of flowers and butterflies!
To create this project, first I used a permanent pen and some prima stamps to make the sketch of the typewriter. Then I cut with scissors some beautiful patterns and a lot of butterflies from a prima paper and glued them here and there to make a collage.
After that, I used the Finn's stencil 'Weaving' with the light paste to create some interest on the background and applied some 'Vintage Photo' distress ink all over the canvas.
Then, it was time to focus on the composition. I used the Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays to color the dawned buttons of the typewriter and some gesso with water to color the black paper around them.
After some more stamping, I started to glue all the flowers, butterflies and other embellishments. As a final touch I used the watercolors and the LSG sprays to color here and there and make some splashes.
One more thing I did and had a lot of fun with, was putting some wire around the Prima bulb and using the same wire to hang some sticker letters on it in order to create the dimensional tittle. I really love how it turned out!
