Stone Angel Canvas in Progress


Here I go with the cemetary angels again :)

This is a canvas that is in progress, to show at the program I am doing in like 6 months.

The angel is transferred directly to the stretched canvas. This measures 18x18. It actually has more done now than shown in this pic...........I am hoping to get more time to work on this today.
The angel image is from my pal Kelly at Collage Visions

The text at the bottom is not written directly to the canvas , its on cheap white tissue paper. I have had a thing for Coldplay lately and its lyrics I scribbled from one of their songs onto the tissue and adhered to the canvas. I LOVE that the color from the canvas goes right through it, and you can't tell its tissue paper other than the bit of texture it has.

thats one of my favorite "secrets" about putting things on canvas is my cheap white tissue paper! It works perfectly!!

Great secret!! I will have to try this one - love the color. Can't wait to see the next phase. How are you feeling these days - thinking of you with fingers crossed :-))

Can't wait to see how this one progresses! That blue is my FAVE color at the moment! :) I like Coldplay too - so we have movies, books, AND music in common! lol
