And helloooooo again!
Back for my second altered art post this morning, this time for Rhedd's Creative Spirit, where we have another Anything altered art goes challenge starting today.
I was looking through my box of wooden shapes, and was inspired to have a play with a canvas
I started by choosing all my pieces and embellishments, and giving them all a couple of coats of Gesso. I added some brick wall stencilling around the trellis, and gave it some depth with a Ground Espresso distress marker.
I coloured the canvas with Lindy's stamp gang sprays and a little glimmer mist, and the flowers and other embellishments with alcohol ink. I just dripped it straight from the bottle onto the flowers. It uses up a lot of ink that way, but it gives a lovely deep shade that way.
Coating everything in gesso first is a great technique, as it means you can use up all those odds and sods in colours you never liked much! It also means you have less of a hard time trying to find enough embellishments in the right colours for your project!
And there it is. I'm rather pleased with how it turned out actually!
I hope you'll come and play along with us this month.
Have an awesomesauce day!
