airbrushed canvas

Hi Miranda again.
Today I have a canvas to share. 

First I coloured this fabulous image by Aurora Wings. 
Copics I used are:
BV00,17, 25, 29
V17, 15, 05, 09
RV0000, 63,17, 19, 32
B02, 99,95, 93,79
YG03, 17
E000, 01,02,13,17

Then I glued the images on my canvas and started adding a lot of embellies, flowers, leaves , metal items, wooden items  and rhinestones. I also used some stencils with modling paste in the background (e.g. Bubbles by Dutch Doobadoo). I glued everyting down with gel medium and after it dried it I coloured it white with gesso. Had to add two layers to cover alle the colours underneath. So don't worry about matching the colours for your embellies...you are going to paint them white anyway, so a good chance to use all the ones you still have lying around in the wrong colours, isn't it.
When dried I coloured the flowers and other embellies with the airbrush and my copics. Using a few of  colours as I used  for the image. 
For the finishing touch I brushed some inka gold (purple and golden) over de embellies to give them a extra shine. 


have a fabulous day
