color burst canvas

hello everyone!!

words can not describe just how much fun the new color burst colors and liquid metals are!!!!

i had started a project for a floral challenge that Ken put out there for his design team but as soon as those new colours arrived in my mail slot…well let’s just say one of my treasured wooden canvas’ came out and i started playing!

this is a second in a 3 part series that i am creating for my ‘quiet’ room. you can see the first one here.

so i started out using the newest colours on a wooden 12×12 wooden panelcolor burst

i did  a bit of sprinkling

then i just kept adding, ,heating, dripping until i was happy with the background

i then wanted to add the lotus flower to my piece but didn’t have a stencil large enough so out came a mask and my cutting knife and i created my own!!
