I thought a lot about what to give my sister for her birthday. Ironically, in the past I used to buy her gifts never thinking of making her one myself. This year I decided to change the tradition and create her gift myself! I wanted it to be really special and beautiful so I created a collage mixed media canvas with a photo of us when we were kids. This is her favorite photo of us so I was sure she will like it.
The technique for this canvas is not new and can be found on You Tube and other websites. All of these techniques are inspired by Anna Dabrowska also known as Finnabair. I played with this technique and I wanted to share my insights and experience with it and a few new ideas as well.
The step by step video tutorial shows you how to create these colorful, shade changing, textural effects from start to finish, and also how to incorporate a photo in your creation.
Have fun creating!
