Prima Doll Canvas

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I had a lovely day with my parents who are both keeping well.

I got home this afternoon to finish off my Prima Doll Canvas which I started yesterday when Kath was here.

The Julie Nutting Prima doll is called Bolero.
.

First I painted an 8 x 10 inch canvas with Pebeo Gesso and greengold acrylic paint, once this was dry I added the music note tissue paper. I then added Inca gold around the edge of the canvas.
The wooden MDF cleft I painted with a mixture of cream and brown and once dry used Inca Gold around the edges and adhered to the Canvas.


Using Kaiser Craft Heirloom Collection paper I cut out Memory Box Virtuoso Music die and adhered to canvas. The letters I inks with Versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder.
In the top corner I added a metal corner with a green large gem.
The doily is my own which I have attached stick pins and roses to the centre.


I stamped the doll onto Supersmooth and using Copics coloured her hair, face arms and legs. I stamped the image again onto the Heirloom Paper for her dress, bolero and head band.
To finish off I added another of my doilies with a cream rose and a metal trumpet charm.
