Canvass Art - 3 July 2010

Bee held a canvass art lesson at The Hobby Hut at Queensburgh Nursery on Saturday, 3 July 2010 which I attended.  Wow, this was an amazing class and I so enjoyed creating my canvass.  We used all sorts of bits of tinfoil, embossed paper, leaves, chipboard, flowers, lace and what ever else there was around.  We painted the canvass black and then stuck down all the other bits to get a nice textured base.  Then we painted over the textured bits black again and then dry brushed the colour we wanted.  I decided to do my theme of Dereck and I in celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary last year.  I really like how this turned out.  The colour in the picture is deep purple and I already have it hanging in my craft room .....

I used stickles over the number 25 to give it a bit of a sparkle.  With the photo, I cut out a 1cm border all round, sanded the edges and then inked them.  I did the same with the cut out bit and then I mounted the cut out bit with double sided tape to give it a bit of a 3d look.
