Art Canvas - Fern
I chose the photo for this piece which is a fern from my 2015 Alberta Road Trip Calendar.
I selected the colors for the canvas from the photo and painted a ombre pattern in greens from dark near the bottom to light at the top. I let it dry overnight. Once dry, I spattered the canvas with white paint which quickly dried.
I mounted the fern photo to a layer of black card stock leaving a small border. This layer was adhered to the bottom left hand corner. It is mounted to the canvas with 3D foam tape. I colored the sides of the foam tape with a black marker before putting it in place.
Being put into the Miniature Show at the gallery this weekend.
I'm also submitting the Nature Leaf mixed media piece I created a while back.
