Birdies & Flowers - An Altered Canvas

Hey Peeps

Back to my "normal" kinda crafting today and a little mini canvas that I altered for my friend's birthday.




I used a 4" x 3" canvas, coating the surface with Gesso to prime and then used Chalk Inks - Blue Lagoon and Chestnut - to colour the canvas. I inked up some 1" Stampbord tiles using the same colours and then stamped some of the fabby inchie stamps from Inkadinkado then just scratched the Stampbord to highlight some of the stamped areas.




I used some more Inkadinkado clear stamps to decorate the canvas surface, stamping using Timber Brown StaZon.




The little bit of beady fringe was added once the piece was assembled and I used Glossy Accents to stick this to the back of the canvas...tis the bestest glue for me!!




Thanks for looking and hope you have a great day....we have 30 odd degrees forecast...far too hot for me so I will probably be found in the shade, near a fan and with a large icey cold drink to keep cool me!
