Texture red poppies on canvas
Hello my name is Veronica, I’m a stay at home mom and I LOVE IT! I have an obsession with Pinterest, all things girlie, decorating and I enjoy cooking for my husband (Jeff) and my two wonderful boys (Josh and Liam). From an early age I have always wanted to have unique things. While most girls wore jeans I always had to mix thing up a bit and put on a dress, draw on my jeans or wear something different from the norm. Like most people I never wanted to show up at a party with the same outfit as someone else. Likewise, with my home I never wanted the same cookie cutter home. My artwork and furniture had to have a distinct stamp. I was one of kind so should my home be.
When I started to create art I wanted artwork that reflected my clients individuality. It should be a statement piece that possess class and show the clients has taste that is a cut above. The artwork should elevate your home to another level. Not scream Homesense and Walmart, mass produced.
My goal is to provided original artwork at an affordable price so everyone can have that one thing in there home that distinguishes them from the masses. I hope you enjoy my blog and I would love to hear from you.
Salt Technique and Zentangle Art
As an artist I find there are so many things I want to try. I found out about Zentangle while at work. During my walks through the call centre each day. I walked by a certain rep whom in between phone calls her head would be down. One day I asked to see what she was doing. At first I assumed it was doodling then she educated me on the difference between Zentangle and Doodling. I forgot about Zentangle for years . Now that doodling is so popular it prompted my memory. I decided it was time to give it a try.
What is the difference between Zentangle and doodling
Zentangle is a repetitive patterns, it’s also well thought out. Doodling requires no thought you go with the flow. The artist draws whatever come to mine.
I thought a colored background would have more of an impact instead of the usual black and white background that most of the Zentangle I found on the internet had. The back ground was created by using a salt technique in which you add salt to the paint then leaving it to dry.
Large grains of sea salt create more of a dramatic effect. Once dry remove the salt. The background was then ready to create what ever master piece you want. If you have no drawing skills trace the outline of a shoe then have at it. I love the rich gold of the background. Since this was my first time I used simple patterns.
