Canvas Art with GDT - Sherry

Happy Monday friends!
Today we have a gorgeous project by one of our Guest Designers, Sherry Bienert. I just love the richness of this project she has created. Here's a little about what Sherry has done with her beautiful art canvas!

I used  the 'Summer' Bloom Girl stamp as my beauty for this canvas. She was a perfect shape for the image I wanted to create! A strong front view was perfect for this multi texture, multi-layered canvas. 
How To:
-Using matte gel medium I collages wrinkly paper onto my canvas (old book pages, old sheet music and old sewing patters). 
-thinly layer fiber paste and apply it in an uneven manner! 
-mix acrylic paint with a paint thinner and cover the whole canvas! 
-let this dry for a minute then take baby wipes and wipe off as much paint as needed for the desired look. 
-stamp 'Summer' onto a transparency and cut out along her neck and face line. 
-apply black molding paste where her hair would be. 
-Using a variety of stencils apply a variety of mediums
-using word stencil, using black molding paste apply to a transparency. Once dried use colored sprays to time transparency
-arrange and adhere metal flowers and bottle caps and pop dot word transparency into place. 

Hope you all have a great week! We will be back Wednesday with some more inspiration!
