Imagine Canvas

Hi Crafty Bloggers

I have a canvas to share with you today . I enjoyed playing with different textures and techniques .
I started out with white mountboard and painted it with white guesso . I then painted all the pieces with a light gesso layer .

The beautiful resin pieces, snipart chipoard 
and metal embellishments 
are from the trinket parlour on facebook .

Here is a picture of the pieces that I had put down first before painting to get some idea of the composition

I then painted everything with Prima acrylic paint and then splashed on some Prima mica powder and lastly finished with a gelato for the silver tones and touches of distress stain spray .

I added some angel hair, embroidery thread and lace and pearl string from Live & Love Crafts and some design paper from Graphic 45.

This cute little sign is from East of India with a Tim Holtz ideology fastener . I also added some watch parts on top of the chipboard centers .

I just love how it turned out <3

I hope you are inspired to get crafty !!
