Obviously that is the inspiration behind this little canvas.
I started with adding some Golden Brand molding paste through a couple of stencils. When dry I I added some Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap (no longer visible really) and then painted with a variety of different brands acrylic paints, Golden, Tim Holtz and Fresco Finish were all somewhere in the mix. Next I stamped a couple of Graphics 45 French Country stamps onto some smooth stamping paper, blended with Distress inks and coloured further with some water colour pencils and my re-fillable water brush.
I finished by layering some of the elements of the paper collection, a die cut ribbon slider and some string and my all time favourite ideaology bit, the inevitable pen-nib.
I carried the texture through on the sides of the canvas also and rubbed a tiny bit of Treasure Gold around the edges and over the raised bits.
Well, that's it. We leave on Monday and will be on the road for about a week, traveling through Holland, Germany and Switzerland, so again it will be pretty quiet here. But whenever I can get online I will try and visit my favourite blogs and see what you are all getting up too.
Loads of art and crafty stash will be packed and I hope to do some art journaling while away and I might be able to show some work in progress.
Thank you for visiting, have a creative time where ever you are, may the sun shine on you and I'll see you when I see you...
I am adding this to a new and exciting challenge blog for people who love the alter things Altered Eclectics where the theme this and every month will be, anything goes, how fun is that!!
