A Pair of Pictures
Here are a pair of canvases as opposed to canvas boards. The canvas was painted with various colours of acrylic paint to give a nice backgound. The dotty effect on the swirl and canvas was created by applying paint to some bubble wrap and then pressing this onto the required areas. The images were stamped on tissue paper (Elusive Image stamps) with solvent based ink and then coloured with Promarkers being very careful not to make the black ink blend in. They were then cut from the sheet and applied with matte ModgePodge. The tissue paper almost blends into the background so that it is not too obvious. The swirl was created from a piece of card on which I had hand drawn the shape. It was painted after it was cut out and when dry glued in place.
