Another month, another challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit. You all know the drill by now... It's Anything Goes, as long as it's Altered Art.
This month, I decided to have a go at altering a canvas (a first for me). I am quite pleased with how it turned out... I'd been meaning to give it a go for so long, ever since I saw a gorgeous canvas over on Elaine's (Ellapu) blog. She was kind enough to email me some tips to get started, which definitely helped me on my way!
I used loads of embellishments, flowers and blooms, mostly in colours I didn't like much... Great way to use them up! And the sentiment stamp is one of the lovely LOTV ones.
I spent an absolute age mixing metallic purple paint with white until I had a colour I was happy with... I then coloured all my embellishments (and the canvas), barring the Melissa Frances corner, the heart stickpin and the lace, which I left white. The cheesecloth is part white, part purple. :-)
I added the sentiment panel, and dotted liquid pearls, in an almost identical shade to the paint, all around.
It's something new and different for me (and I just love trying something new), and I found it to be so much fun!
Now, if you go take a peek at what my fellow teamies have been up to, you'll not be disappointed! And if you want to play along, there's this gorgeous prize up for grabs from Fernli designs:
Yummy, isn't it?
And that is finally it from me for today. Phew!
Hope you all have a spectacular weekend.
