This first canvas is using a picture of Connor and Shadow. I have wanted to scrapbook this picture with a title of "Me and My Shadow" since I took it. Figured I'd use it for this project since it was one that really captures how close these two are. It's hard to believe that he was scared of her as a puppy but 2 years later they are inseparable when he comes over.
|I used Puffy Stick On Letters to create the words Me and My Shadow. |
Mom thought I should highlight the words so they stood out more,
but I this type of project is supposed to be more like
an Eye Spy project, the more you look - the more you see.
These pictures were taken while it was hung on the wall so I couldn't get a very good picture of the top details so I took pictures of the bottom details just to show you the different "findings" I used.
The texture on the photograph is from spraying polyeurathane on the whole piece to seal it. This gives the picture that "mat" texture instead of a glossy finish.
This is the type of art that you either like or don't...and I'm really starting to like it a lot....so there will be more to come.
