COFFEE - A Mixed Media Canvas by Lynne

Hello there! It was an interesting week around here because both my best friend and I (we ride to work together) had our thermoses break so we were without life-sustaining hot beverages on our lunch break! Let me tell you it was NOT pretty...but on the bright side our crisis did inspire this canvas!

I started by stenciling with texture paste and then I attached the title and all the elements with hot glue. I primed the entire piece with gesso them painted here and there with Twinkling H2Os before adding another coat of gesso to soften and blend the colours. I misted with tan and gold mists and inked the words and coffee cup with gold and brown ink on the edges (red on the "love" ticket and the heart)

This was a fun project to put together and would be a great gift item to create for any coffee-lover! Thanks for visiting and may your week be filled with hot beverages and warm hearts!

  1. This is a really fun canvas, Lynne. I love coffee, too, and was thinking how great it would be to hang near the coffee maker.
