King Owl Canvas

Hello again!  I am back on track now, and I  intend to take part in challenges and blog on a regular basis, I promise.  I have been so busy lately with family from abroad visiting for 3 weeks, and another daughter moving house.  It is nice to finally get some time to play.

I would like to show you my newest canvas.  I have named it King Owl.




 Here is king Owl! I perched him on a beautiful key, and gave him a crown.



Some of the beautiful embellishments available from Craft Box, owned by Anna Hersom, a very talented and forward thinking lady! 


A beautiful piece of Snipart, available from Craft Box You can receive these beautiful embellishments, and lots more besides, when you subscribe to the monthly box.  A wonderful box of treasure, and sure to make you happy!

I have made a short Tutorial, telling how I created King Owl, I hope you enjoy it.
King Owl Canvas by Rhoda

First of all I painted White Gesso over the whole canvas.
I tore strips of paper, and put some through my paper ribbler (tool which makes ordinary paper into corrugated paper)
I glued the paper onto the middle of the canvas and then ‘splodged’ 2 different Crackle Paints (Old Paper Distress Paint (green) and Dusty Concorde (Mauve)) randomly and heated them up to crackle.  (Great Fun!!) - Once that was dry, I used Decadent Wine Texture Paste and 3 different stencils on the canvas, avoiding the crackle paint sections.
Now up to this point, I had the canvas sitting horizontal, but decided to turn it to Portrait. 
I then used a tree stencil with gold Metallic gilding Polish.  Now, this didn’t go according to plan, and it ended up being a round splodge on a trunk! Lol!!  I liked the look and just kept it that way.
I used another stencil with the same Gilding Polish, to make gold circles over the Old Paper Crackle Paint. 
I used the same stencil with 2 different colours of Sparkle Texture Paste to cover some of the torn papers.  I used Decadent Bamboo, and also Decadent Teal.
I used Prima Opal Magic Wax in Blue Velvet, and Pentart Wax Paste in violet, to highlight some of the texture on the canvas.
I searched through my Snipart stash and found the perfect shape to cover my Gold Splodge!
Then it was time to add the pretty Craft Box stuff.  I used a silver brad to fix the top embellishment, then 2 keys below that.  I used Glossy Accents to fix everything.  I hung the heart charm from the side of the Snipart.
Now, on to King Owl! I fixed 2 little glue glitter gems in his eyes, and perched him on another key.  I found a crown charm and it fitted perfectly on his head. 
I then stuck sparkly gems randomly over the canvas.
Done!
