Just wanted to show you a little creation of mine, using a water-stained canvas I bought for 50p at the Garden Centre!!!!!!! It was a brown and cream canvas with a few lines on it basically and it has been hanging about waiting for me to play with itfor ages! UnrulyPaper Arts has a challenge about adding an A.T.C. to an altered something, so this was my inspiration for doing this particular piece. Also, the theme means a lot to me at the moment as I feel I am ready to open some new doors and step into a new future, so that chose the theme of the altered work.
Apologies for the clarity of the photos but will give some brief explanations and letter the pictures talk for themselves.
Here is the completed canvas. It was firstly distressed using inks to blend all the colours together on the background and hide the water damged stains. I stamped, in brown Stazon, some of my favourite quotes and flourishes and embellished these and other areas with tiny buttins and gems and a key. Once the key was added I knew for sure what I wanted to do next.
And finally the last ATC. this is metal run through a cuttlebug with a folder. Coated in Snowflake paint and distressed, then edged with lace. I found some other lovely off cuts from previous projects and added these also with a lace trim.
I really enjoyed putting this together and hope you have been inspired by it too in some small way. thanks for looking and any comments you choose to make, which are always appreciated.
until next time......Happy Crafting Moments
