April Challenge - Rhedd's Creative Spirit DT

And hello again!

I'm back with my DT piece for the April Challenge at Rhedd's Creative Spirit, and this month I decided to do a canvas, which was inspired by my fellow teamie, the fabulously talented Elaine.
She did a gorgeous metallic-look canvas over a year ago (before I'd even *looked* at a canvas in that way, lol) and was kind enough to give me a whole load of hints and tips to help me on my way.

And this (finally!) was the result:


Forgive my lack of adequate photography skills, lol.

I had originally used a picture in the centre of the canvas, but decided I didn't like it, do I used a set of alphabet dies to spell out a nice sentiment from gold mirri card instead.
This was a really great way to use up lots of bits and pieces, and especially those in colours I wasn't fond of! I can definitely see me making more such in the future.

Well, that's it from me for today, but don't forget to see what the rest of the team have been up to, and if you fancy it, why not come and play along? As always it's anything altered art goes (seriously guys, no cards please! There's always one... lol)

Have a fantabulous day!
