So I decided to try and make a finnabar type canvas and this is my result. not quite sure if I like it or not and would love some constructive criticism on it.I'm thinking maybe my pieces should be closer together maybe?

I like it Steph, but I think you are right. The embellishments should be clustered closer together.January 28, 2013 at 12:26 am #199108
I love the elements that you've used, Steph and the colors are great. But, like Kim, I think you may want to cluster your embellishments on top of each other. If you study Finnbair's work, she has them so close and so coated with ink that it's hard to distinguish most of what she puts down.January 28, 2013 at 12:27 am #199106
I like it too! 🙂 I agree with Kim- the clusters would emulate the Finnabair style more if they were closer together, almost layered or piled on. She mists the whole layout when she's done, covering up just the photo, and is bold enough to do that with some black mist too! She also layers stamps on the edges and under the embellies. (I'm not trying to sound like a know-it-all, those are just the things she shared in her class, which I feel so lucky to go to!) I think it looks awesome as it is though. 🙂January 28, 2013 at 12:53 am #199109
Beautiful Steph! the only thing I might do is add a few…not many…onto the pic …just a few extra embellishments, just enough to blend the pic into the rest…I think it is so pretty…January 28, 2013 at 1:14 am #199110
Love the color palate.
I would suggest using modeling paste on and around the embellishments and add new embellies while the paste is still wet. Spray with more ink when done and see how you like that.
Just an option.

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."January 28, 2013 at 3:44 am #199112
Hi Steph! I love all your bits and bobs! The only suggestion I have is to camouflage the edges of your photo or frame them somehow. That's the only detail I noticed. Thanks for sharing Steph!January 28, 2013 at 4:46 am #199111
Finn is all about layers; so as Kim said cluster yours closer and add more layers. just keep layering.
Steph it's a beautiful start!!January 28, 2013 at 5:34 am #199113
Thanks so much everyone, all of your suggestions really help. Rae I was trying to remember which of you had taken her course, as I thought yours looked awesome when you showed us!January 28, 2013 at 5:23 pm #199114
Steph!!! Wow, it's fabulous!!!!

Okay so I've added more stuff and sprayed more glimmer mist. Does Anna use glimmer mist for spraying or something else? I don't think mine really covers like her pages. Does this look any better or worse? Thanks for the help. 🙂

I adore it… and good for you for stepping outta the comfort zone. I have a hard time trying new things so good on you girl!January 28, 2013 at 9:45 pm #199118
I love it too! You have made me want to try it! Looks awesome and very interesting! Great job on this one!January 28, 2013 at 9:49 pm #199119
I think it looks great.
She paints over ALL the embellies. Either with glossy or matte medium or something similar, then with sprays and inks.
I really like how you can SEE all the little charms and baubles here!January 28, 2013 at 10:08 pm #199115
