I made what I think I’ll call an Intention Board – a place to pin my new year resolutions, or maybe it’s a Prayer Board and will hold pictures or the names of people on my prayer list. Either way, it’s a painted and collaged canvas with wires running across the front to hold tags, photos with mini clothespins, or baubles.
To make your own….
Gesso a white 14×11 canvas. Paint on bright colors!
Apply acrylic over watercolors and dab off with tissue paper if you don’t want brush strokes.
Add some ephemera with matte medium.
Add more gesso- kinda here and there
Spread on more acrylic paint in darker colors with an old credit card, let it dry and then add more paper. Mine just arrived from Tokyo. 🙂
Stencil on black stars and lace- or whatever.
Add a white heart, initial, or bird, then a random number, two little gold stars, then outline a few elements with a charcoal pencil and brown water color crayons. Paint the edges black and then add your wire. I used thin green floral wire that was doubled up on itself.
