Hey everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a present for a friend to say thank you. I made a backlit storm themed canvas using led lights, canvas, linen cardstock, black embossing powder, versamarker embossing pen, silver and various blue and purple acrylic paints, and craft knife.
I began by sewing led lights into the back of the canvas, that way I could control the spread of light over the front of the canvas. I then started my design by cutting a linen cardstock to the same dimensions of the canvas. I hand wrote 'Storm' in versamarker embossing pen and covered with black embossing powder and heat set it.
Next I began cutting lightning type holes and patterns into the panel. I affixed the panel when I was done to the canvas.
I then began painting in different mixes of blues, purples and silver acrylic paint and in a tumultuous way to suggest a stormy sky.
The top photo is the canvas in the day, and the second is the canvas lit at night with the backlit areas really popping through the lightning areas.
Id like to enter this into the following challenges:
Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments :-)
