I wanted to start by saying that I always think I will take pictures of my creative process......but then I get to creating and forget to even look up and see what is happening around me. That being said, I only have one picture of this piece.
I started by using gesso and then laying out my paper design (but not gluing yet). I added a brick stencil with some homemade texture paste and then glued down my design using Claudine Hellmuth multi-medium. Awesome stuff, buy in BULK! 😋
I added some Tim Holtz gears/cogs and rub ins. Next I inked all of the edges of the canvas with brown archival ink.
Lastly, I used another stencil, Chicken Coop, with some black ink and I added some flowers after giving them a soft coat of gesso and the bicycle die cut (I purchased the bicycle on Etsy, I don't have a die cutting machine or anything fancy like that, yet!).
Hope you enjoy! Thanks for stopping by my blog and have an awesome day!~€
