'Dream On' mini canvas by Marta Lapkowska

Hi everyone,
Just before the weekend we have mini art for you.
Magic, fairy and black gesso!?
Are you looking for black gesso inspiration?
Check out this wonderful mini canvas! Texture and rich colour for all mixed media fans.




Hello my crafty friends,
I am so happy to be back to you.
I have some mini art today, mini canvas.
Can you believe that I used black gesso for the first time ever? Yes, first time. For long I felt intimidated by black gesso and I don't know why.I am used to white gesso with nearly every project but never black one :)


I felt that it's time to experiment with black gesso. I used my favourite wooden bits. You will find those on the back of your brand new canvas. For some reason I was always collecting them without knowing when and how I am gonna use them.


I concentrated on creating as much texture as I can by using wooden bit, thread and white crakle paste. I coloured my piece using many shades of silks. Finally I add cut out photos and title.


 
You can see the whole creative process in my video.
I hope you will enjoy it and find some inspiration.
So grab some canvas, paints and enjoy, happy creating!
