Canvas


Take a blank canvas and slap on some stuff and voila! Pretttttttty! LOL!

I decided last week to have a play with some of my purchases from Senz and made some resin flowers with the Easy Cast resin and molds I bought.  What to do with them? I just happened to have a blank canvas sitting there waiting to be plastered with stuff so off I went. First some gesso, and some texture paste, sprayed with glimmer mist and splattered with some alcohol inks, laid on some muslin , textured with a piece of jute and left to dry. Maybe I should've left the colouring till it was dry cos is took ages...but I'm too impatient!  hehehehe.....

Then I started layering on resin and paper flowers, a couple of shells, pearls and viva pearl pens, then prayed all with more glimmermist.

Next I  added some MIC chipboard dragonflies, flourishes and of course the gorgeous  bird and birdcage.   These I coloured with a mixture of alcohol and metallic inks , and glimmermist.














Messy and lots of fun!

Hi Viv

I have been M.I.A in blogland recently, so I am on a major catch up. Hopefully life has settled down a little now and I can be a more regular visitor. I have enjoyed having a good look round your blog to check out all that I have missed. You have so many gorgeous creations here thanks for all your inspirations!
