I have been needing some artwork for my guest bedroom when I was inspired by an article in Martha Stewart's magazine about her show. A fabric designer, whose name unfortunately escapes me, covered a canvas in fabric and then painted a bird over it in acrylic paint. I really liked the color combinations and decided to try it using one of my favorite subjects, my dog.
The project was very easy, the only problem I experienced was a shedding foam brush pooping on the canvas as I covered it with layers of decoupage glue.
Here are my two pieces:
the bubbles are not as bad as this picture implies
I really enjoyed making these and look forward to doing some more. Any questions, let me know!
