ESCAPE by Stéphanie PAPIN

Hello eveyone !
Today I have the pleasure of sharing  my new creation with you, which I created  
with some of the beautiful 2Crafty chippies!
  Each time I work with  my 2Crafty chippies, I feel inspired, because each 
piece of  chipboard is a precious embellishment. 
This month, I decided to work with something different! 
Here is a home decor canvas that will have a special place in my home!
I didn't want to work with a photo this time, I needed a change! 
So I choose  a beautiful picture that would fit in the beautiful  little resin frame,
 and it served as my main element in my canvas.
So I decided to build my canvas around this element. Looking at the picture and the thin dainty branch, I was then drawn to the "Leafy Rounds", with their delicate and thin branches and berry 
like bits and thought that they matched the image in the picture.

To complete  the work on my canvas, I decided to use some geometric elements that 
would be an extention of the resin frame.
 And what a pleasure for me to discover the "Bubble grid panel".
  Yes, this was  also  a great element for my canvas, because I find with this chipboard 
right angles that remind me of the right angle from  the frame, and at the same time,
 the small  bubbles in the grid remind the berries.... with some imagination!

I wanted to make a very bright canvas because I find that the light inspires serenity.
First of all my mixed media work on this canvas is made with light colors.
I decided to paint my chipboard with a white color.  Here I diluted white gesso 
with some water and I painted my chippies with this texture.  
Just my  title "Escape"  has been left natural, I needed to have some contrast.

To remind me of the main picture in the centre, I decided to add some big India ink drops.

Here and below are some close-ups, where you can see these beautiful chipboards !

I hope  that you like my canvas work without a photo!

 Hope it helps to inspire you and maybe try a Canvas using some beautiful chipboard.
