My other project this week was a canvas. It's a special pressie for my new sister-in-law who turns 50 on Saturday. It doubles as a belated wedding pressie.
I have several goes at colouring the canvas. The first canvas is now sitting in my craft room waiting for a new project! I had tried to mix a brown paint and came up with a forest green. Ha! So I bought some brown paint (Raw Umber) and tried again, and this time I mixed it with modelling paste to get a lumpy bumpy background. Inked it with Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Walnut Stain) and then sprayed with Glimmer Mist (Dazzling Diamonds). A little bit more ink on top of that.
The photo is mounted on 3mm bookboard and then matted with some Ice Silver metallic look paper.
The white stuff - no idea what it's called or who makes it - but I got it from a local florist. The green stuff - Webster's Pages "Blooms" (gorgeous!). The bling is another unknown maker; I got that from a sewing shop in the braids section. A little bit of Twinklets Diamond Dust on the red roses and it was complete.
Hope she likes it. :-)
