Memory Maze Reverse Canvas
Created by Linda Thompson

I wanted to create something to go in my girls new room. The entire canvas was painted in gesso then a dark purple, I then did a rough cost of white paint and once dry it was sanded to show areas of the purple this shows thru the swirl on the frame.

I used a brick template and texture paste to create the bricks on the sides and back wall of the canvas then sprayed it with 2 different tones of brown and added a darker brown ink to the edges to highlight certain areas.

Memory Maze 12x12 swirl frame had the center cut out of it and was painted in a lavender then touches of a dark purple added here and there the swirl center was painted in eggwhite (grey/white), Green Tara & Manor house flowers.

Prima vine was added up the inside edge behind the chair and green tara petals and flowers added to it.

Memory Maze Bird cage wrought iron was first painted white then a clear crackle paint was added once dry   I painted it with H2O paint and rub off the excess so only the paint remained in the cracks, the chain was also painted with nutmeg H2O paint, a little american craft thickers glitter bird was added to the cage. More Green Tara flowers, petals and flower sprays added.

Memory Maze vintage frame has been painted in an apricot colour with touches of purple added the clear embossed to give it a shine and Green Tara silver paper added to the back to make it look like a mirror.

Memory Maze Bird Bath small was first painted in eggshell (a grey/white colour) then highlights of white added to look like shadowing along with lines drawn in grey, little birds were also painted. I small rose garden made up with Green Tara rosebuds.

Memory Maze Street Lamp has been painted with nutmeg H2O paint and the glob painted with a gold shimmer paint.

Memory Maze Chair Large has been painted using purple in light and dark along with the eggshell paint colour. More Green Tara petals rolled up under the chair.

Another Memory Maze Corner treated the same way but a larger one this time slipped in behind the garden.

Memory Maze Fence with Chain has been painted in eggshell then clear crackle paint over the top. 

Memory Maze smallest corner from the corner set has been painted in the nutmeg H2O paint.
