Love apple tree Canvas......Welcome baby Sol

A while back I made a tiny picture using my
love apple tree digi for friends.
I really like the idea with the couples initials carved in the tree
and the kids initials on the apples sitting at the base.

I decided I wanted to try out the same idea for
friends that have just had baby Sol.

This time as a mixed media canvas.

I covered the canvas in old music score.
Painted with a thin layer of gesso as a base.
Then painted with pale acrylics and crackle paint.
Added the clouds which were cut from a WRMK dp.

Love apple tree was coloured with Promarkers and Sakura.
Trunk and branches finished with clear glaze
and the apples had added shimmer glaze.

Pearl liner to edge clouds, stickles to add definition to grass.
Various glitter glazes added to grass and sky, then some
alcohol ink applied with sponge to add definition to sky.

It was alot of fun!

I'd like to share this with
