The canvas itself had been previously coloured, so I went over that with a wash of diluted acrylic paints..then using other colours that I had also diluted I loaded a watercolour paint brush and flicked paint over the canvas creating a speckled effect.
I started layering up my canvas with scraps from my stash, distressing the edges of the papers.
I also cut and used halves of a couple of large tags and a ticket and price tag.
I had a Graphic45 menu/label that was in my stash so I adhered the image of this lovely lady to that and added her to the canvas.
Next I added a strip of muslin and added a strip of lace. I then added a strip of fabric that had some lovely blue script on it..and embellished that with a key.
I finished embellishing the canvas with a optician's lens on the lady's face, some flowers and a metal leaf...and I just couldn't resist adding the beautiful lace butterfly.
As always at Rhedds, it is altered art and there is no theme...No Papercrafts as in Cards or Atcs.
This is not a prize giving challenge ,however we do select a Winner, a Runner Up and a Design Team Choice..and of course there are the badges to go with that...and even if you have been selected before, you can still be selected again.....so do pop over and have a look.
