I bought a couple canvases last week for half off at a local craft store, and the 20×20 one has such a cool texture to it that I knew it had to be a cool piece of wall art. I dug out a couple of 8X10s, trimmed them down a tad, and went from there. The canvas was painted with Claudine Hellmuth paints (love those, btw), then some Glimmer Glam. Layered the photos on Bo Bunny Et Cetera papers from my Swirlydoos kit and painted the edge of them with some Glimmer Glaze. Finished it off with two swirly coers from the Tattered Angels canvas pieces, colored with TH Distress Stain. Adhered everything to the canvas with bookbinding glue…. nothing is EVER coming off! 😆 😆 😆 I think it tued out pretty well….
Sorry for the slight blur… was a quick picture taken with my phone camera this moing! I'll post a picture in the gallery when I have a chance to take a better picture with my camera.September 29, 2011 at 9:53 pm #138110September 29, 2011 at 10:03 pm #138111
Thanks Lisa! The Et Cetera papers were just perfect for this… gotta love it when you get the perfect kit for your photos.September 29, 2011 at 10:16 pm #138112
Oh how glitter-licious! I love the blue background

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."September 29, 2011 at 11:01 pm #138113September 29, 2011 at 11:08 pm #138115
Oh, Monica, that is sooooo pretty!!!! You're right about the Et Cetera papers & I love the refreshing blues of the canvas!!!September 29, 2011 at 11:10 pm #138116September 29, 2011 at 11:19 pm #138117
Aww…. thanks! You all make me blush! Canvases & wall art are my latest thing… pretty much everything I've done that wasn't a card or a gift for someone has been hung on the wall this year.September 30, 2011 at 3:03 am #138118September 30, 2011 at 2:27 pm #138114September 30, 2011 at 3:27 pm #138119September 30, 2011 at 3:47 pm #138120
Thanks, Paulien…. it's really just some Claudine Hellmuth paints blended and slapped on there, then toned down just a tad with some random gesso swipe. Easy peasy. I had forgotten how freeing it can be to just play with paint and not worry about the end result.
ETA: I blended Smidge of Blue and Blank Canvas to make the graduated color… those old AOL discs that used to fill my mailbox make a rockin' palette for mixing paints and they wash off easily.September 30, 2011 at 4:46 pm #138122
Monica, that's amazing!! And I can see all the sparkleys!!!
