Paris Canvas

Februarys challenge is now underway over at Altered I decided to create something a little Romantic, it was also a good way to use up a tag that I created for my Tag Challenge blog ( link is in my sidebar )

Out of the depths of my craft room, I found this old preprinted canvas that my friend had given me about a year ago, it measures 9.5" x 12

I coated it twice with gesso and then added texture using my homemade texture paste.

I then used some slightly diluted acrylic paints that I had put in to spray bottles and sprayed randomly all over the canvas..then set it aside to dry.
Using my Paris Tag, I layered it up on scrap papers ready to add to my canvas.
Once the canvas was dry I stamped some areas with script the with a bottle top and white acrylic paint I made some circles on the canvas, also with a loaded brush flicked the same paint across the board...again leaving it to dry.

I added my tag and layers ...

 then added some sisal strands, flowers and metal embellishments.
If you enjoy altered art and mixed media ( no cards,atcs etc) then why not pop over to

Beautiful job of repurposing your canvas. The palette is so delicate and the composition is perfect! Nicely crafted, indeed!
