My First Canvas


I have been meaning to get round to having a go at doing a canvas, and Andrea kindly bought me a blank one for my birthday so I decided to get on and have a go! I have used my favourite greens, Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters Distress Inks, and the stamping is done with Versafine Olympia Green and Adirondack Lettuce. I have sprayed Gold Glimmer Mist and daubed a bit of Gold TH dabber here and there too, then generally used embellishments all around the edges! The centre of the large flower is also a pressie, from Linda E! I am quite pleased with my first attempt! If you click on it for a larger image the sparkly bits show up!!

I love this. I did click for the big view, saw the gold shimmer and loved it even more. Lots of great little details that I think will make it interesting to keep looking at. Well done!
