Analogous Colour Canvas.

Hello Everyone,

Your Analogous colours sit next to each other on the colour wheel.
Choose one colour to dominate, a second to support. The third colour is used (along with black, white or grey) as an accent.  

Have a play, you will be surprised on the results you achieve.
My primary colour is blue on my canvas.
I apologise at this stage that I do not have a tutorial, I honestly was so involved in designing on the day that it was consigned into oblivion, I will make another canvas at some stage and I will do a tutorial for you. 
But for now you will have to read!
The canvas was first prepared with a layer of White Gesso, I know I am suppose to let this dry first before adding more media, but like many artists I am too impatient.

My image has been stamped with Archival ink on a die-cut heart and glued down with multi medium, I added a die-cut border on the top and some lace on the bottom, then it was a case of adding trinkets and metal things, along with the flowers in a design that I found pleasing.
I now grabbed my dylusions inks-Bubblegum Pink, Crushed Grape, and London Blue, masked off the image and spayed away, to finish I sprayed over with Biscotti Perfect Pearls and once dry I painted the whole canvas in Multi Medium Matte.

As you all know by now I love texture, and this Canvas has plenty.
The artist in me has to veer away from cards occasionally.
Have a play with Analogous colours, you do not have to use inks and get all messy, you can use paper or paints.
