Crafty Play Day Make

Hi Peeps
 
This week I was over at Linda's and I showed her a canvas covering technique that I'd done previously at a Hels Sheridan workshop ....
The idea being you can use up your odds n sods of paper scraps
 
Me and Linda decided to use matching papers to tie our canvas together better, rather than scraps. If you have a go and your papers are very random do a 'wash' over with cream or white acrylic and it will pull the shades and colours together for you.
 
Here's mine


 
Stuff I Used
Prima Engraver paper pad
PVA
Bees Wax
Stabilo All pencil for outlining
Black acrylic paint
Various Tim Holtz/Ranger embelishments and grunge shapes
Flowers and other random bits from my stash
Inka Gold
 
We had a fabby day, and of course we both had very mucky paws ha ha ha
 
 Challenges entered

Thanks for looking
Be Good
