Part VII. Decoupage on canvas.

Decoupage on canvas is one of very useful technique I have learned at the course.
It taught me literally, how to paint a background around a motif that those two create one consistent wholeness. I saw some of the work made by my teacher in her workshop and I was really amazed. From far one couldn’t see that it wasn’t a painting. Only when look closely one could notice that there is a precisely cut out motif glued to a canvas and the background is painted around it. It’s a beauty of decoupage!

We had many choices of motifs, but I have picked up this one. Maybe because of the sentiment to dogs. ;)

Stay tuned! In a post where I will show last piece created at the course, I will reveal who was my teacher. :D
