Patchwork Canvas

For this canvas I did a take onPapaerartsy's Christmas Cracker Video 2  all was going well until I started adding the TG and it went on a bit heavy in places, so I tried knocking it back by Dry Brushing Blod Orange over, you see what you think.

I started by drawing the grid onto the canvas in pencil then realised I was going to cover that in GP, Doh! Oh well, I could kinda make out where the pencil lines had been so I used my pallette knife to re grid it.

I used pallette knife for cross hatch square, Mini 101 and 49 (i think) as well as ELB03 to make the textures in the other squares, painted them in hues of minus green (Sherbert, Rose and Very Berry) and then added the TG - Royal Amethyst and Renassiance.  I painted the wooden heart and flower with the left over paints and washed the top over with Blood Orange for depth, and finally added the metal wire heart (TGd with Renaissance) and button to the the centres of these emebllishments.

I am also entering this in Craft My Life - Anything Goes

The Treasure gold enhances the texture perfectly and I so love the fish impression in the paste!
