When the canvas fabric has been ripped off the canvas frame ... quite simple really.
a closer look at half of that frame
and the top of the frame itself
a little mist, well a whole lot of mist, a little gesso, a little modelling paste and some more mist ...
a flower or two or ten - no idea how many, but a few ...
and again ... in its entirety ...
So what did I do and how did I do it.
Take one canvas and rip away the canvas - a little frustrating when it doesn't come off cleanly though.
Take gesso and liberally apply all over the frame and I mean liberally apply everywhere.
There's not many things worse than waiting on paint or gesso to dry ... so I had to give it a helping hand.
I then painted on Prima Color Bloom purple spray using a paint brush and waited for it to dry and then got bored, so out came the heat gun again. I applied another coat of the same mist and dried.
I then fossicked around looking for some old Kaisercraft rub ons and applied all over the frame. Doesn't matter if they don't come off cleanly, it gives it a rather unique look. I went up one side, turned the frame and came back down the other.
I grabbed a stencil and some modelling paste and applied modelling paste randomly on the frame. Waited for it to dry and then grabbed another Prima Color Bloom mist and using a smaller paint brush applied the colour here and there ... okay, randomly!!!
I gathered together flowers, muslin and few trinkets and using the hot glue gun and stuck everything down.
Then finally I grabbed the tub of gesso again and lightly touched gesso here and there.
