Hello fellow bloggers, thanks for stopping by to see my DT post for That Craft Place and the start of our new challenge which runs for a fortnight called Mixed Media - Anything Goes. All the links are on my sidebar for Lisa's shop our natter and chatter group on Facebook and the blog. It would be lovely if you have time to pop over and see what my Teamies have been making too.
I was recently trying to tidy up my craft room and came across a lot of little embellishments and things I have had lying around for a long time. The idea then came to me to do a Finnabair inspired canvas using a photograph of my mum.
Here are some close ups of it finished.
I had glued everything in to place and added a coat of Gesso then applied more embellishments repeating the process until I was happy with my design and layers.
I covered my photograph with a rag and started to spray on my paint which had been watered down in a spritz bottle. Once finished I added some Gilding Wax to highlight some of the areas.
Hope you get a chance to join in the challenge and thanks again for stopping by.
