Hi Everyone! Hope the start of your week is going well. Today I am sharing a canvas that I created at the request of one of my etsy customers. She wanted something with dachshunds on it.
This concept was a bit out of my comfort zone. I have never done this type of canvas before and "pet" subjects are not usually something I use. However, this turned out to be great fun and has now got me thinking I may do one with kitties! LOL
The background was first coated with gesso then layered with gelatos and mists. I used Dylusions for the brown tones and Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist for the yellow tones.
The numbers are a stencil. I lost the packaging long ago so not sure which one it is. My pups were created from BoBunny Autumn Song papers. I had purchased a digi image of a dachshund and then after I printed it out in different sizes I cut it apart and used it as a template to cut my pups out of pattern paper. I probably could have just drawn one myself using an image as a guide but I like to support my fellow etsy artists.
The additional embellishments are either things I had in my stash or leftover bits from past Scraps of Darkness kits. The paws were created by my stamping on some of the Autumn Song paper. I wanted the paws to be the same to bring consistency to the design.
I used modeling paste with a stencil, Dusty Attic Chipboard grass with a distress paint dabber and some stickles for sparkle.
Thanks a bunch for stopping in today! Hope you will you all have a great week!
