Here are some closeups of detail.....
One of the first steps for this canvas was gluing on some mesh onto the canvas. I then painted the canvas,using DA paints,denim,cashmere & hot chocolate. My next step was to do some stencil work, I used Shimmerz paints TexureZ Teal me no lies. Once that dried I applied a thick coat of clear crackle onto the canvas....
I painted the chipboard with DA paints,then clear crackle. I sprinkled on micro beads onto the heads of the grass while the crackle was still wet.
I also used some seed beads...
For the glimmer on the canvas I used LuminArts silks acrylic glaze,& H2O's. I just kept playing with the silks to get the shades of colour that I wanted...






Thank you so much for taking the time to look,& I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with,with this months Mood Board!
