What fun I had making this little scene here to celebrate Father's Day for my husband. He's a real grease monkey as his hobby is building streetrods. Now, the best thing about that is he can NEVER say a word about my scrappy spending habits because building streetrods is way more expensive!
So, I borrowed that cut little vintage gas tank from his miniature car collection and using a Canvas Corp 6 x 6 canvas; I "parked" an old car in a field of Petaloo blooms beside the tank! The first step in creating my canvas was to paint the canvas with a thick coat of white gesso so that my mist and masking would be easier to apply. After the gesso dried, I misted the canvas with both silver and suede Glimmer Mist. Next came some stenciled on bricks. Then the fun part, dying the flowers, adding the photo and the fun embellishments.
