Create a Canvas

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all doing?

Both parents are well and it was lovely to see them.

Today is a canvas I created at the weekend.





Step by Step

1. 8 x 8 square canvas, I gave a coat of white Gesso, once dry painted a coat of PVA glue
2. I embossed a piece of card and adhered to the canvas.
3. I then gave it a coat of brown acrylic paint and left to dry. Then dry brushed Pebeo Iridescent paint across the embossed card.
4. I cut out the picture and adhered with foam pads for dimension, then arranged my embellishments around the image, added 2 corners and an old dangle earring was placed in her ear with a brad.
5. To finish off I added a metal flower and old earring. Then lightly went over with gold iridescent paint.

I would like to enter this into the following Challenges:

Crafting with an Attitude #5 - Anything Goes
Inky Chicks #54 - Use a Metal Embellishment
Not Just Cards - Always Anything Goes
Anything but a Card #49 - Anything Goes
We love 2 Create - Anything Goes (Mixed Media)

Many thanks for stopping by today!
