It was inspired by a photo I saw on Pixabay while searching out magical forests. When I saw the photo, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. There are variances in the painting as I never copy photos exact. I hope you enjoy this rendition, especially with the added bits of sparkle in this magical setting.
It is painted on 300 gsm/140 LB Acid Free cold press 25% cotton watercolor paper. After it was painted I sealed it with Fine Art Fixatif, then did all the stitching. Once completely finished, I sealed it again with 2 coats of Krylon Crystal Clear sealer. I then added a layer of canvas fabric on the back and stitched up the edges with my sewing machine. I used the scrap pieces of canvas fibers and stitched those up on my sewing machine to make the strap. I then stitched in the signatures which are replaceable if you choose.
I plan to make quick and easy video to show you how to swap out the signatures.
NOTE – Although its been sealed well, I would not consider this waterproof by any means. I consider it a piece of art, so be gentle but dont be afraid to use it!
