Canvas Artist Apron
For the last of my January canvas projects for Tattered Angels, I chose to alter an artist apron. I used the new Spring 2011 Limited Edition Glimmer Mists on this apron (because, as you can see, I could use a little spring right now, ha!). I applied the colours in layers, starting with a gradation of lightest to darkest. I tossed it in the dryer to dry it, and then started masking with Glimmer Screens from the Fanciful Stencils set.
By drying it after the first layer, I could built up layers of colour, without them blending too much – which would make the colours muddy.
Am I worried about ruining this apron if I get all covered in paints and mists? (Let’s face it – the way I work, it’s less a question of ‘if’ and more a question of ‘when, and how bad’.) Not really – I’ll just add more layers of colour. I’ll call it a work in progress. :)
Supplies (Tattered Angels):
