I managed to play along with Our Mixed Media Moods again this month. I went for a reverse altered canvas. I have been playing with this idea for a while and it was finally time to make it happen.
First up, here is the Moodboard:
I took inspiration from the tree picture in the top right corner as well as the bugs and the colours. Here is what I came up with…
I have used Tori again in this project. If you don’t know who Tori is you can read about her here.
This is my first reverse canvas and I really love how it turned out. Most of the work is in the background colouring. I used my Colour Blast Colour Sprays to build up the colour. There is a process video up on Popleopod you can have a look at.
I used a transparency over my background which made the whole project a bit harder to photograph but here it is all stylised.
Before you mention the fact that you can see glue, I know and I did it on purpose. I like the way it looks. Especially as it almost looks like cobwebs in places.
Here are a few close ups:
Oh and here is the process video:
