3UP Abstract Canvas

I can now reveal that I'm taking part in the current 3UP over on Paperartsy Blog.
Please do pop over and take a look at all of the wonderful creations. 

Colour group B: Banana, Tangerine Twist, Bougainvillea, Caribbean Sea, Blue Glass and Purple Rain.
My Topic Paint
I started off with adhering Tissue wrap to a large canvas board then totally covered it with Blue Glass, then started to shade in with purple rain, splattered and dripped Caribbean Sea.
I let this completely dry before adding any of the other colours as I didn't want to be left with a muddy looking piece.  I had soon firm ideas of where I was going with this piece but after looking at it for a couple of days and realised that I was being limited by the butterfly so I covered  it up and everything started to flow.
The colour palate reminded me of the smarties and tutti fruttis and that influenced how the piece finally looked when it was finished, a sort of cosmic explosion of sweets. 


I had so much fun producing this using the wonderful Paperartsy paints in our colour group and I also added a little Snowflake, Treasure Gold Indigo & Limted edition 2, Blue Crocco, Micro Beads, tissue wrap, stencil and script stamp.

Wonderful abstract piece. Love the colour palette & it reminds me of looking into a full tin of Quality Street with the sun glinting on all those amazing coloured wrappers.
