Altered Canvas- Two versions

Hello Friends!
Hope you all are doing fine. Its Sketch Challenge this fortnight at Lulupu. So I decided to make canvas following the same sketch. Here I have the pictures of the two versions I made.

For this canvas I decided to go with colour gradient concept. Most of the embellishments you see here are recycled. I made use of some beads, silicon balls(from handbag), a metal chain from old wallet and handmade flowers.
The colour gradient was achieved using paints and Lindys sprays and a mix of Lindys spray pigment and gesso.

This is the other version of the same canvas which I attempted. This is my first try ever at a canvas so I thought of messing things up! Lol!
For this one it was a tough job since the new colours could not come out well on the dark colours of the previous version. For this look I tried gesso, paints and Lindys sprays and magicals.

  3. Super gorgeous Project!!! Love the colors and great use of all the embellishments :)

  4. They both look good! LOVE all the little bits and pieces.

    P/s: Maybe you could try acrylic paints instead of store-bought mists like Lindy's for your next canvas. The bottled mists are watercolours which gives the transparent effect but you have to use a lot for coverage.

  5. Woe Jaya, this is absolutely stunning work, thank you so much for sharing.
