Paint Your Own Born to Be Wild Canvas - Denise Alloca Creative Team Thursday

When I received Jessica’s Born to Be Wild Animals stencil it reminded me of my daughter, not that she’s a wild child!  That and she loves animals and has an incredible spirit.  For this Design Team contribution I decided to make a canvas for my daughter Erin.  Using three of Jessica Sporn’s stencils I created a bright, positive piece of artwork for Erin. I started off painting my canvas in bright colors, then I used a texture plate to add interest.  

Next I used a reductive stenciling technique that gives a subtle and interesting look to the image.  A little detailing with Stabillo pencils and water, and done.

I hope you enjoy the video!

With a passion for art from an early age, Denise Alloca turned her interest to photography and later art education. Through her diverse exposure to various art forms, she found her way to mixed media art, where she currently showcases her work on her blog.  Denise has been a Design Team member for Donna Downey’s Artist Gang, creating instructional videos showcasing various mixed media techniques.  Denise's work has also been published in Art Journal Kickstarter, which offers advice and techniques for art journaling enthusiasts.

Thanks for this great tutorial Denise!
