I love these canvases that I bought at Ocean State Job Lots. A great price for lots of canvases. I have been trying my hand at different textures. I started out by adding some paper, gesso and paint in the background. On this canvas, I used a technique that I found on Donna Salazar’s blog. It didn’t turn out so well. I’m thinking its because I used distress ink instead of the mixed media inks used in the Tutorial. I then sprayed the background in some Dylusion sprays. I stamped the background and images using Tim Holtz stamps. Can you believe I got 4 sets on clearance at Joanns for 12$. Awesome, huh?
I used wood letters and covered them in black soot distress embossing powder to add some texture.
I layered several elements to make the background for the TH image. I used TH distress markers to color the image.
I really pushed myself to use some rosettes that have been sitting on my peg board. I have so many embellies that are just sitting around unused and forgotten.
I added a rosette on top a wooden clothes pin and a wooden butterfly on top of that. Some metal and twine complete the canvas.
Well, I think thats about it for today. Thank you for stopping.
