Just Be Canvas

I finished this canvas last week and thought I would finally share it here, and put it in the display window at Scrapbook Fantasies.  I have used Golden Fluid Acrylics for the painted background, along with some Golden Gels for texture.  There is Glass Bead Gel randomly added on the background, as well as Soft Gel (Semi-Gloss) to attach the Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap, Washi Tape, American Crafts Thicker Letters and thread (good old sewing thread) and to give the dimensional flowers their dimension.  I have also used a Karetake Brush Pen (from Scrapbook Fantasies) to add the stems and leaf outlines.  I also used a Darkroom Door Dot Background Stamp and Ranger Teal Archival Ink to randomly stamp here and there on the background.  At the end of all this textured goodness I used a touch of Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink around the edges for a bit of highlight.  The whole piece has been finished with two coats of Golden Gel Topcoat w/UVLS (Gloss) for added protection from the harsh CQ elements.
