CANVAS




Hi, this is the Canvas I was working on at the weekend (the offcut of kitchen chipboard is now completed but can't show you until March, where you will see it in on the Gingersnaps blog).

The fab Helmet Girl image was created by the talented artist Andrea of http://smudgetastic.blogspot.com/ which she most kindly gave me.

The stamps in the chipboard circles were part of a prize given to me by another wonderful artist Martina. http://martina-stemple-gewerkel.blog.com/ thank you so much both of you. Thought you would like to see a picture of the fabulous prize Martina sent me. Please go and visit these wonderful artists blogs, you will be amazed.

All I did was paint the canvas in various colours, understamped it in script and a little masking; other mediums used were Caran D'Ache, gold paint dabber, gold embossing powder, clear embossing powder, crackle glaze, gesso, inca gold and the metal parts I used from stash. I need a couple of words to put on it, but as yet cannot make up my mind as they have to be short ones to fit on the canvas; so any suggestions would be great.

Not sure if this qualifies for Simon Says Stamp Challenge which is masking, still if you don't try you don't know do you............

Thank you for popping in, its a really cloudy horrible day here in Wellingborough, hope its better where you are. See you all later as am off to get some lunch now (stomach growling). Take care and enjoy the rest of the day. Annette x

Another awesome creation, you got a great prize there. Interjecting my 2 cents, no words, sometimes one more sequin is too many. Leave a bit of mystery, and the viewer can pick their own words.
