Michelle here with a beautiful Goddess canvas made with Rinea Paper Foil!
- Rinea Metallic Foiled paper
- Sapphire Star Struck Foiled paper
- a canvas
- Any face photocopied on the lowest ink setting.
- Gold embellishments
- Decorative paper
- Paper or floral roses
- Decorative punch
- Foam tape
- Old paint brushes and a round foam stencil brush
- Tacky glue
- Acrylic paint is shades of: white, cream, blues, pink, orange, yellow
- Fine permanent pen in black
Using the round foam stencil brush, start painting at the top of your canvas with the darkest of your blue paints. Gradually lighten the blues as you work your self down into the pinks and yellow paints.
Twist the foam brush as you work to make the painted circles seem 'cloud like'.
Glue your photocopied image onto sturdy craft paper and cut out. Paint the face with white and cream colors. Then add some color for the cheeks, lips, and eyes. When the paint is dry, accent features with the black pen. Cut out her outline including hair and torso. Trace her cut out onto the canvas. paint some vibrant colors around the traced design.
Adhere your cutout to the traced design with some diluted glue. Leave about 1" from the edge of the cutout without glue.
Measure your paper foil to be about 5" wide. Starting from the outside, gently crumple the foil towards the center. Then crumple into a neat ball. Next un-crumple the foil, careful not to tear it as you unravel it. Smooth it out as neat as possible.
Cut your foil into ray-like shapes as shown.
Use an old paint brush to spread glue onto the foil.
Place your rays onto the canvas, tucking the ends just under the face cut out.
When all your rays are in place, begin cutting your Sapphire paper foil and decorative paper into crescent shapes.
These crescents were approximately 4" wide. Begin adhering them with glue around the face.
The purpose of the "crescent" shape is to frame the face and to portray the movement of a shawl or scarf.
For the body, you can start gluing down overlapping layers of block/crescent shapes from the patterned paper.
Add more Sapphire foiled paper as desired and then start adding thin curved strips of the gold paper foil as desired.
For this goddess, I added gold star shapes.
Finish with your paper roses and more patterned paper.
Accent with glitter and punched foil shapes as desired.
Thank you for coming, I hope to have inspired you!
