Sunshine

A simple layout to enjoy the sunshine.

The base I have used here for making this canvas is a pizza box.

I covered the entire pizza box with home made gesso.

Allowed it to dry overnight.

I added some birds which were cutout from an old newspaper. Painted the birds with watercolor.

I drew the sun with markers.

Then I added some ribbon to decorate the canvas and a flower made from a plastic milk bag.





 Homemade Gesso:

Mix 3 parts of water with 2 parts of white glue. I've used Elmer's school glue.

Add talcum powder ( I have used Jhonsons baby powder) to the glue-water mix until you get the desired consistency.

Thanks,  Joan of Art
