Today I want to share with you a canvas that I made for my mum. It was inspired by a workshop that I did with Hels Sheridan before Christmas.
First of all I covered the canvas in gesso. Once dry I dry brushed the background in sand coloured acryllic paint. I added to this by stamping script in coffee archival ink. I used 2 stencils to add pomegranate acryllic paint. Once all this was dry I set about decorating the canvas.
The dress form was created using the Tim Holtz Alterations 'sewing room' and 'bird cage' dies, both inked with distress ink. The bird cage was cut to fit and seam binding ribbon added.
The ruler tape was from John Lewis haberdashery department. I then added various bits from Tim's Ideology range, along with bits that I have had in my trinket box for a while. The tickets were cut from Tim Holtz ticket strip die and then stamped using Tim's set of stamps.
I have spoken to mum this morning and she loves the canvas that I created for her! I hope you do too.
Thanks for looking.
