Hope Sings - Donna Salazar Designs

Hi lovelies!   Today I have a little 8x10 canvas to share with you using lots of wonderful Donna Salazar goodies...

I have used a Zutter Canvas Artboard as the base, they are fabulously rigid with a MDF backing, perfect for collage and stencilling.  I have torn some sections from the dictionary print paper in the Mixed Media Stax 2 and adhered them to the background, as well as some Clouds from the Fun & Funky CutOut Sheet and strips torn from some Natural Beauty papers.  

I've then used Donna's Heart Stencil from Want 2 Scrap with some texture paste and added some more texture paste to create the background.  The Bonnie's Bird Cage and Hand Drawn Swirls Chipboard from Want 2 Scrap were spray painted white and then adhered to the canvas.  The cage part of the chippy was slightly curved before adding to the base to give it some depth, and some open weave muslin drapped in through the open cage door.   Once glued down the whole canvas was sprayed with loads of Smooch Spritz.  Mixed Berries, then Caramel Latte, Sea Breeze, a little River Mossy and Green Olive.  I allowed the colours to run and blend...

The printed quote was coloured using the smooch colours that dripped into the colour catcher, as were the GCD Chipboard Alpha Stickers.  Finally the chain and the little bird embellishment were added and the texture picked up with some metallic rub to finish it off.

 I love the gorgeous shimmers this shows in the light, with so much colour sprayed onto it, all the mica adds the most beautiful subtle effect!

Thanks for visiting today!
