My Materpiece

Good Morning
My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the sunshine,
it makes a change to have good weather when its a bank holiday.

Just a quick one today as off in the garden catching more
sunshine while I can.

A while ago I had a go at doing a canvas, so please with 
the result and its now hanging proudly.


1. On a large canvas I painted it with Gesso, then I took
various items from my stash and arranged them.

2. I stencilled in two sections of the canvas and
then adhered the winged clock ( Purchased from
Alter This). A great side to get all your mixed
media products from and very reasonably priced.

3.All the items were then glued onto the canvas
ie. screws,nuts and bolts, keys padlock, old
belt buckle. Some metal art items and flowers.

4. Once all glued I then gave everything two coats
of Gesso. Once that was dry then came the part
I had no idea what colours or how to go about
laying then, so what did I do, The usual for
me, lied all the distress inks up and picked 
then up one by one and started spraying until
I got the effect that you see.  Boy was I a happy
chick as I never thought I would get the
effect that  I did.

I hope you like my little piece of art and thank
you for calling.  See you again tomorrow.

Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
