Dusty Attic April challenge

Today I am sharing my take on the Dusty Attic April challenge.

Here's a look at the mood board.

My project is a 'secret garden' canvas.

I created the background on the canvas board with 
acrylic paints, distress oxides and stencils.

I layered on some Dusty Attic Chicken Wire chipboard 
that I coloured with black acrylic paint.

I also used a Dusty Attic Entangled Heart chipboard piece. I used the negative part for another layer in my 'garden', then the heart as the focal point, tangled within the vines as if it was 'discovered' in the secret garden.
I coloured these chipboard pieces with layers of acrylic paint, gesso, gelatos, and Colour Blast Colour Artist inks. 
I highlighted all the details in the heart chipboard piece with a black pen.
