Mixed Media Canvas for SaCrafters - Spread Your Wings & Fly

Hi everyone,

I hope everyone is doing good so far. I have recently taken on a new job and I know that it's gonna be an exciting journey for me. I should have more time with my kid and getting to work is a breeze when it's just 10mins drive away. So big "yay" to no more traffic jams! :)

This canvas was completed some time back when I resigned from my previous company....wanted to give a message to myself....remember to Spread Your Wings & Fly!

Lots of thoughts have been put into creating this canvas cause I want it to be a very meaningful piece.

  • Lace Flowers; signifying to bloom and grow
  • The big gear behind the brush acts as the sun, hence the way I spread the premixed gel medium giving an illusion of sun rays.
  • Of course I need wings to fly, I put on a double wing reminding me of a butterfly. Meaning it's time to evolve!
  • Lastly, the paint brush. I could have put in a mini broom stick like the Harry Potter Nimbus 2000 if I could find one. So the closest I could play with is a paint brush :)

Here are so close up photos before you scroll on to my video tutorial.
