Once the CHA was over, Stampington chose a few of the projects to be published in the July/Aug issue of Somerset Studio magazine. Since the magazine was just released, I thought I could share a few photos of my piece that were taken before I packed it up for the show.
I painted multiple layers of Distress Paint over the entire canvas starting with a very bright green background (crushed olive), then covering parts of it with a few layers of blue (evergreen bough, iced spruce, tumbled glass). Once the background was dry, I drew imperfect lines that give the piece it's visual structure. Additional layering with bits of paper, stamps, Idea-ology Layering Stencils and Tissue Wrap.
