Altered Canvas - Create








Made a simple canvas today. Firstly I must credit 2 people for the inspirations for canvas. I have to admit that when I first made my canvas layout - Pls see Canvas - Sibling last year, I thought I came up with the idea. Now - it seems that everyone is doing it. So I guess I didnt pioneer it...I was under the illusion that I did - LOL!!!
I must credit Ali Edwards - who wrote Life Artist - bought it from http://www.scrap-n-crop.com/ last month or the month before. Love all the canvases that she produced. Secondly - for the textured ways that I have employed here... It was from the book "Tantalizing Textures" by Trudy Sigurdson. I spent 4 hours at the hospital today and I tried to read her book back to back. Here are the results of the read I guess....

Love the textures that I created and the 3d effects. I nearly forgot to thank my pal, Shar for giving me the wire mesh last December, thanks Shar....

Materials used:
4x4 canvas, Adirondack Acrylic dabbers, Making Memories Mesh, Some chipboard letters (sorry cant remember where thery were from), Prima Flowers, Blue Bling, chipboard and some fibers that I bought from Lincraft.
