Yes I know---- another canvas - YAWN! .... D

I know I appear a little boring with my canvases but hey I just could not resist lol.  This time  I used a canvas picture I bought from a car boot sale last week.  I paid the princely sum of 50p. 

This is a mish mash of just about anything laying about in my craft room.

I used modelling paste on part of the canvas and laid alot of different embellies over the paste.  When dry I layered up more embellies.  These were all in my stash and to name but a few there are wooden bits and pieces, flowers, leaves, chain, beads, plaster hearts and clouds, plaster letters to spell out LOVE, string, earrings - the list is endless lol.  

I used a web like lace for the other portion of canvas. I painted the entire canvas and embellies using white acrylic paint.   I then cut into the canvas to make an opening.  I glued back the pieces of canvas to look like an explosion.. well it is supposed to look like it lol. 

I covered a piece of chipboard using paste and randomly stippled it using my palette knife.  I then sprayed it using a variety of perfect pearl sprays and fixed it behind the opening.  I then used a purple color rub n buff over the texture.  I used the same technique over the entire canvas.



Well I hope you can make sense of this piece because I can't.  I just wanted to use some of my stash as it was gathering dust lol. 

Thank you for visiting me and I do hope you call back another time.
