Oh the Joy of scheduling posts! As you read this, I will be in Asheville, NC celebrating a 31st year anniversary…and hmmm…Thursday is scheduled for the Biltmore tour…or is it the Pub Crawl? … either or…it will be awesome to experience some 70 degree weather!
Also – I want to shout out a BIG THANK YOU to Lisa for covering the Thursday post last week! Really appreciate it Lis!
Now…without further ado…let’s get started on this weeks project!
I began with a 3 x 3 deep canvas painted long ago in metallics.
I stenciled with gesso…look how the gold is seeping thru….ooooo
Don’t forget the sides!
I loaded a used transparency for ink jet printers….into my ink jet printer….opened my “Word” program and typed the word “Fleur”, then printed onto the rough side of the transparency.
Next, I cut out the word “Fleur” from the transparency leaving a generous border. Then the FUN part…(I could not share a pic as, sadly, I only have two hands)…I held the transparency with tweezers and LIGHTLY burned around the edges using the long handled lighter type thingy….going slowly so as not to let it catch fire…just enough for a nice curl…MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
For the final steps, I outlined the “Fleur” transparency with a gold marker (as well as the stenciled fleur) and attached to the canvas with a brad….glued….long story. Opened my pot o Inka Gold and highlighted the edges of the canvas ….and Voilà….my fleur is fini!
Enjoy your Thursday…au revoir!
