This was for a challenge over at Swirlydoos. We were asked to create a Textured Canvas by layering lots of mediums.
I first went over the canvas with some Gesso, then blended areas with Glimmer Mists, Lumiere Paints and Acrylic Paints to create the background.
I used Modeling Paste to create the textured Brocade pattern and highlighted some of the texture with some Gelatos, Inks, and Paints
Since this challenge was about Layering Mediums to create texture, I used one of my favorite techniques to create "Faux Vintage Leather" with masking tape, inks, and clear embossing enamel.
I layered a piece of Burlap on top and then stamped a Toile pattern on some tissue paper to accent my photo mat. Added two crocheted doilies, then lightly layered some fluffy marabou feathers on top.
I added bead gel to several areas to add even more texture and shine.
For embellishments I kept it pretty simple, a small cluster of flowers and pearls, a few chandelier beads, and an angel to finish it off.
