Altered Art Canvas


Hi Everyone

Well this is my last holiday weekend, I’m not looking forward to going back to work on Tuesday.

I would love to stay at home and craft, but we can’t have it all lol.

I bought a cheap canvas and it’s been sitting in the cupboard for months ( like a lot of other things )!

So I have spent my last weekend having a go at this little mixed media project.

I really enjoyed making this one, very messy and a fairly long process waiting for Mod Podge, Gesso and paste to dry between layers, I did help it along a little with the heat tool, but still left it over night before adding colour mediums.

I was very pleased with the overall effect, always a ‘but’ with me haha, as this was my first one there are always things you find out along the way and would do differently next time.

Definitely work on the outlay first, gather everything you want to add so it’s all ready when you want to start, But I made this up as I went along then spent ages looking for bits, even raiding Hubbies odds & ends box for washers and screws, he didn’t have much so I need to send him to the man shed to find me a little stash love him x

I have used a mixture of Dylusions ink sprays, DecoArt media fluid Acrylics and Americana Metallic’s.

I felt this bit wasnt quite right, the large heart with the mail box, it just didn’t come together, but I had already glued it down by then and was worried about ripping it off, never mind we live and learn. I’m defiantly going to buy some more and have another go, It was such messy fun x

Thanks for popping in

Happy creating


ok its been a few days now, and I decided to remove the mail box with a heat tool and replaced it with some leaves.
