Hi everyone, today I would like to show you this project where I used a completed acrylic poured canvas and decorated it with a stamped and coloured image. I used the wonderful Spectrum Noir Aquamarkers to colour the image!
Let’s get started!
To get started I first added some anti-static powder to a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface Paper and then I stamped the large flower image from a The Ton stamp set called “Coming up Daisies” on this paper using Versafine “Onyx Black” ink and clear heat embossing afterwards This way the lines stay black and crisp even if I add a lot of water. I chose Spectrum Noir Aquamarkers in the hues present in the acrylic poured painting and then laid down my first layer of colour. I wanted the flowers to be not to dark to make them stand out from the dark background colours of the canvas, so that is why I started with a light hand.
I first used Spectrum Noir Aquamarkers in Spice and Teal in combination with a waterbrush.
Next I added a darker layer to the flower petals but only using the small nib of the Orange Aquamarker. This way I can add a little bit of the darker colour at once and control the outcome better. Also deepening the leaves with the Teal marker and adding Daffodil to the heart of the flowers.
Adding more details with the small nibs of the Orange and Teal markers where I felt these where needed. Also adding some Terracotta to the flower hearts to darken them up a little. And then adding Chocolate around the entire image, creating the transfer to the canvas colour the image will be adhered to.
When done I added in some highlights using a white Gelly Roll Pen.
This is what my poured canvas looks like. I have a different blog post about how you can do acrylic pouring, this post is not about that form of art.
Then I fussy cut the flower image leaving a small border and to finish the project I adhered the image to the canvas using The Crafter’s Workshop Gloss Gel Medium and a brush (wash the brush afterwards because the medium will act as a glue).

And that’s it for today’s project! I wish you a creative day!
