This is a stretched canvas of burlap. I bought a big "G" for my sister Gwen which I put all sorts of goodies on including a bit of dictionary page that is for Sister. Then I glued it onto the burlap background. I added a piece of ribbon that is attached at the back so that she can clip pictures or whatever to it. Again I would like to thank my Pinterest addiction for this idea.
For my Dad the artist I did an 8x10 canvas. I spread modeling paste through two different stencils with a pallet knife. I then embedded bits of watch parts like stems and bits of the inner workings into the wet modeling paste. I used spray inks and let them drip and mix on the canvas. I used gold glitter mist over all. I call this "Losing Time". Even though Dad is a pastel artist he loved it.
Thanks for stopping by.
