Click here to see last week’s upcycled art project (which is great for the kiddos who are now on summer vacation).
Eclectic Art Supplies Used
– used cross stitch hoop, 8 inches
– raw canvas material (un-gessoed)
– cut up pieces from a painting that didn’t work out
– CREATE pocket stencil
– clear gesso
– molding paste
– printed tissue paper
The project starts off with a (barely) used cross stitch hoop that I purchased at a resale shop for only…50 cents! I bought it months ago not knowing what I was going to do with it. Can anyone else related to those kinds of purchases?
Mixed media artists save everything! I cut up a painting last year and kept the pieces, just in case I needed it in the future. I took one of the pieces and created an owl on it. First I applied white gesso on the parts I need to paint over to create the wings, eyes, and tuft.
Applied clear gesso to a small piece of canvas where the word “Create” will go. I let this dry for several hours.
I think he is super cute!
