Canvas RE-DO!!

Did you ever make something,
then think....Ugh!!!
What the....

Time to Re-do!!

so this actually started as that....

I looks like a cheesy velvet painting!!
It had to go!!

so i painted over it....
used an inspiration wednesday technique for the background,
wiped away parts with a stencil..

big canvas so it took a while!

added molding paste with another stencil...
to add texture

you can still kinda see the background painting..
just adds to the layers...

time to regroup..
not think !
and paint!!

glaze the background 
let dry a little 
and wipe away...

 added a little more white to the background..
and done
Wow do I feel so much better!
That velvet painting had to go!!!!

it is now hanging over the fireplace....
until i decide to do something else!!

oh did i mention i started some smaller panels like this!!
come back for more!!

Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. Completely wonderful transformation!! Thanks for the inspiration so I might get brave and paint over a few of mine that aren't favorites

  2. This turned out beautiful! I've been taking Donna Downey's Abstract Florals course, but haven't gotten brave enough, yet to do a multi-flower vase....I'm still in the single flowers. Thank you for posting this!

  3. Beautiful work!!!I love what you have created.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Lovely result, Yes I know about hating a painting. I am trying to learn watercolors and i have the tendency to put on too much paint so I am doing a lot of washing.

  5. I love this one...but I love the colours on the old one too...I do understand not wanting to look at some of the art that shows up...I have a lot of that too!
    Great revamp!

  6. You smashed it .. Love love love the outcome .. It looks fantastic on your wall ��

  7. I really admire what you have done with the old painting, the new looks so much fresher and modern.
    Nice work with all the layers, it must have taken a while.

  8. We've all been there! Love what you did with it. It has so much more depth now.

  9. lot of great textures going on and the painting looks better with a lighter background :)
