We Are Australian
I love this song, it gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. The theme this month for my Helmar DT project was 'something to celebrate Australia Day' on Jan 26th. I loved doing this canvas, it was all about a bit of Art for Art sake. I love the freedom of the design team as I get to use the variety of Helmar products, including Scrapdots, Acid Free Glue and one of my favorites at the moment, the 2 Step Crackle, with all sorts of other products.
I Google searched the lyrics of the song for the background of the canvas.
The image is of Locky and my nephew fishing off the beach in Busselton last year and transferred onto the canvas using 'Sheer Heaven', this specialty paper gives the best image transfer I have seen so far.
I played with the Helmar, Texture Effects, getting this result using Glimmer Mist Stencils.
The crackle was achieved using Helmar 2 Step Crackle.
The colors of the canvas, the Collections chipboard letters, bird and my hands on the day, were a result of playing with various Glimmer Mists and Radiant Rain Daubers.
Back again soon.
