Time for a summer project and maybe even some colour....
The base of this was one of the very cheap stretched canvases from the Works ( 4 for £4.99). I wouldn't want to use them for fine art but for this sort of thing they are fine.
Having decided roughly what I was going to use and where it was time to colour the background.
The canvas was coloured with the Ranger "Bubblegum" inks. Sprayed with water they were allowed to flow into each other and the canvas left to dry.
The individual letters and motifs were decorated with a range of distress inks, decoupage and paint.
All that remained was to stick everything down and let it dry.
Amazing how much mess this all made!
